  • Honest, unflinching and worthy of reappraisal.

    Nov 3, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Pointless and an excruciating bore.

  • The movie itself feels like an overstuffed burrito: Nicola Pecorini's cinematography has verve but no visual sense, and the film's self-important pace turns deadening over the long haul.

  • A triumph of costuming and production design over plot, theme and main characters.
