An attempt at an intimate personal drama that just doesn't come off.
A film which creates drama more out of gesture and nuance than dialogue, and employs a lush setting which overwhelms instead of pointing up the characters' emotions.
This isn't a movie anyone would mind, but it isn't one anyone would feel terribly touched by, either.
Too bad that the Oscar-winning Fred Zinnemann (From Here to Eternity) ended his career with such a disappointing period romance, one that even Sean Connery (in his post-Bond era) can't help.
Fred Zinnemann waited 40 years to make this surprisingly lifeless film, a major disappointment from the acclaimed director.
A gentle swansong from director Zinnemann.
Many people could accuse Fred Zinnemann's swansong as slow and dated, but I would defend this film as a stylish drama that arouses a huge variety of concealed emotions, especially for anyone who appreciates cinema as the art where images speak for themselves. indeed, Zinnemann made a touching and overlooked gem, with beautiful cinematography and superb performances.
