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.

It is fairly melancholy news that the works of two of Antonioni's admirers outshine the master's segment.

Eros comes nowhere near meeting the challenge of its title when compared to the increasingly lewd standards of our current cinema.

There's one good movie in here, sure. But unfortunately, it's over after the first 43 minutes.

A collection of bagatelles that, with one exception, fails to live up to its promise.

The three films are watchable but resolutely minor works, though each has something to recommend it.

All the stories deal with sex, all three segments tend to photograph their leading actors unflatteringly and all three reveal prominent writer-directors at low ebb.

A flaccidly pretentious and snooze-inducing trilogy of allegedly racy tales.

When the producers of Eros... described what they wanted from Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai, American Steven Soderbergh and Italian master Michelangelo Antonioni, they must have written the memo in Chinese.

I return to Wong Kar-Wai's 'The Hand.' It stays with me.

A trilogy of short films by Wong Kar-Wai, Steven Soderbergh and Michelangelo Antonioni dealing, sometimes obliquely, sometimes more directly, with sex.

All in all, Eros is a mixed bag, and a mostly empty one.

Wong's is the sexiest, Soderbergh's the funniest, Antonioni's the most Italian.

Wong and his always moody, intense cinematography deliver in spades.

The venture's extreme unevenness will make it commercially viable mainly as a DVD curio.

This justly renowned trio combine for an ambitious original anthology of international sexual tales, and the results are variable, stimulating and quite different in tone and mood.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

A maddeningly uneven triptych about the vagaries of sexual longing.
Top Critic

For the invited filmmaker, the opportunity to make a statement is surely a thrill, but for the viewer -- who can't pause indefinitely, as with a book, between stories -- the focus-shifting is a demand.

Antonioni fans should steer clear, lest their idolatry become disquieted.
