Though there is a near vaccuum at the center of the film, Sommersby is never boring, largely because of Ms. Foster's beautifully self-possessed presence.
It's really an old-fashioned hankie-soaker with Gere and Foster ably jerking tears. An odd yet convincing couple, they won't replace Rhett and Scarlet, and frankly, my dears, who can? But belles wring and bosoms heave in a manner most pleasing.
A square peg pounded into a round hole -- or, more exactly, a medieval European story that has been unsuccessfully updated to the period of the American Civil War.
If you're looking for a picturesque romance -- with a little intrigue on the side -- you could do worse than Sommersby.
From start to finish, it is a well-crafted film: part love story, part mystery, and all drama.
Sommersby has everything to succeed. There's just one minor problem in this Americanized remake of The Return of Martin Guerre: Who can believe Richard Gere and Jodie Foster as a Tennessee Ashley and Scarlett?
His (Amiel's) direction is full-blooded and unafraid of sentiment, but he reins in the film's epic possibilities, which could easily have bogged things down.
Lacks whatever magical ingredient there is that makes a film a moving experience and instead settles for being an adequate but not a remarkable achievement.
A winning and soul-stirring exploration of the spiritual meaning of one man's sacrificial death.
The story idea is an interesting one, but it doesn't quite pan out in the end. There are too many unanswered questions and unresolved conflicts.
A powerful piece of filmmaking. Gere and Foster are as immaculate as always.
Hobbled with a meandering script, an erratic performance by Richard Gere, and an overbearing score by Danny Elfman.
She knew his face. His touch. His voice. She knew everything about him... But the truth.
Based on the story "The Return of Martin Guerre" this is a beautifully and inticately woven tale that tests the strength of love and pride. A story with powerful emotions and a dilema which is a tragedy of it's time.
Richard Gere who is often criticised as an Actor gave no reason for criticism here and another good performance from Jodie Foster.
Great chemistry between Richard and Jodie. Still not sure if he was or was not her husband! Must watch it again!
kind of tale of two cities-esque with good story and solid acting.
