Swept from the Sea Reviews
I also don't see why they didn't run away together to America or something since they seemed to be hated so much by the rest of the town. Why stay and put up with that the rest of their lives?
The story was too slow and drawn out.
The only thing good about it was the cast. There were some great actors so its a pity even they couldn't save it.
Da un romanzone di Joseph Conrad: "Amy Foster"
The acting was somewhat clumsy at times, but I had the feeling that it was purposely so. People in real life are clumsy and unsure of themselves and make mistakes and often don't react the way they do in movies. I think the slightly unpolished feel of some of the scenes made it *more* affecting and *more* compelling than it would have been otherwise. My only criticism is that it did move a bit slowly at times, but this I think is just the nature of the story being told. It's certainly not a movie for everyone, but for me it was a truly remarkable and well-told tale.
