    The mid 1800's is a tough time to be a lady or gentleman. Oscar and Lucinda are meant for each other, but they have to fight through society's rules and Oscar's fear of water. The scene of the glass church floating down the river is pretty cool.

    Odd, overlong character drama which during the later stages echoes Werner Herzog's <i>Fitzcarraldo</i>. I lost interest in Oscar's decline as he's not really a person who earns much empathy. Cate Blanchett leaves a mark as Lucinda though.

    <a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i32.tinypic.com/27yrew0.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> Oscar and Lucinda, starring Cate Blanchett and Ralph Fiennes.Both are superb actors and i was excited to see them together in a movie. But they would have picked a better one.This movie was so slow and boring that it was not a good choice for their acting career.Simple an odd movie. I can't say more.
