Though Wong's short lives up to the promise of the title, Antonioni's is a serious disappointment. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

This anthology film features three different tales of passion. In "The Hand," young tailor Zhang (Chen Chang) is attracted to high-priced prostitute Miss Hua (Gong Li). Next is "Equilibrium," in which stressed businessman Nick (Robert Downey Jr.) explains his problems to unhelpful therapist Dr. Pearl (Alan Arkin). Finally, "The Dangerous Thread of Things" examines the relationship problems of Christopher (Christopher Buchholz) and Chloe (Regina Nemni), a couple on vacation in Tuscany.

  • How are the mighty scattered, fallen and lost.

  • Anthologies by their inherent nature tend to be highly uneven. And Eros proves no exception, with the individual sections ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous.

    October 10, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • An excruciating festival of middlebrow good taste.

  • Three smart filmmakers produce three whiffs on the theme of love.

  • The auteurist feast turns out to be a paltry spread, with one director on autopilot, another playing it safe, and the last apparently working on assignment for the European Red Shoe Diaries.

Audience Reviews for Eros

    Both Steven Soderbergh's and Michaelangelo Antonioni's segments are very interesting and for the most part flawless, but I really wasn't taken with Kar Wai Wong's. The first segment is just so repetative and drawn out for no reason, especially when the love story isn't even powerful. However, Robert Downey Jr. and Alan Arkin make up for it ten fold in a truly funny and powerful therapist session. I liked the b&w vs. color transition, it made the story feel all the more dreamlike. The relationship analysis in Antonioni's final segment is really a unique type of film making. It's not simplistic in its message, but the minimalistic visuals really put you in a unique mood.

    Hmmm....interesting! I could have sworn that I rated this before. Oh well, this is an interesting collection of stories told in sequences with an amazing set of actors and actresses. From beginning to end, the stories detailed are extremely intriguing. Great cast!

    The Hand & The Equilibrium were good, But I didn't like Antonioni's The Dangerous Thread Of Things
