A review of this — 5 years ago
This is a welcome attempt to tell a series of dramatic stories in an interesting and unique manner. I certainly appreciate the romanticism of the idea, location, situations and characters but found the handling of each, especially with respect to the artistic nuances, to be over-reaching. A bit more subtlety would have softened the blows of the bludgeoning of borderline pomposity. Also, a bit more introspection with the main characters and exploration of their dramatic situations would have allowed the audience to relate on a deeper level. All that being said, it was not a bad movie but may have had a more powerful impact as a novel.
