The movie plays like the kind of line a rich older guy would lay on a teenage model, suppressing his own intelligence and irony in order to spread out before her the wonderful world he would like to give her as a gift.

What do you call a character study with shallow, sketchily-drawn characters, but a gorgeous setting? A scenery study, perhaps. Or an atmosphere study.

Liv Tyler is radiant, but the film itself suffers from the same self-indulgence that always hampers Bertolucci's work.

In my view, Bernardo Bertolucci is one of the world's most overrated high profile filmmakers.

The film does have a small mystery in it, but it is easily solvable and plays only a small part in the plot.

Bertolucci returns to his native Italian soil for the first time in 15 years, and the result is a gorgeous albeit fairly insubstantial homecoming.

The result is more tedious than insightful, and the film just meekly limps along, without any wit, passion or fire.
