The Triumph of Love Reviews

    Terrifically charming and capturing both the lightness and the composure of 18th-century French art. I'll admit that any film that uses Rameau's music so prominently gets points from me. Also, if I ever win the lottery, I will tear down every other house on the block and build Ben Kingsley's philosophic retreat where I will wear his Turkish costume. (Tthose critics who found it artificial seem to have totally missed the point.)

    This is simply a later reworking of Shakespearian romantic comedies and the film adaptation also represents this style. It is however very dull, devoid of pace or zest.

    Mira sorvino was splendid in this film.. It was so fine to watch her, especially in her scenes with Fiona Shaw =))

    I'm sure it made a great stage play, but I found this overacted and tedious. Too many longing glances. Costumes are pretty, settings are great, actors are all glamorous. The philosopher and his sister needed to be more ridiculous in following with the original play.

    It suffers from plot overcomplication after a while, but oh how I love Fiona Shaw. And Mira Sorvino, too.
