    A cliche, but I was swept away by this beautiful film. Politics, class struggle, gender roles~ a microcosm of life, with and without familiar institutions. Giancarlo Giannini is so very expressive and versatile, readily conveying comedy or tragedy just by the look on his face. This film is rich, but I don't want to analyze it here ~ just enjoy the experience!!!

    A great little film that Guy Ritchie and Madonna should have just left alone.

    Hmmm... I don't quite have the words to say how much this movie was completely insane. I don't know for sure if I like it or not. Decisions, decisions.
