Suprisingly good film. Great performances on both Penelope Cruz and Ben Kingsley's parts. Well written, unique... I enjoyed it very much.

The most boring movie ever made. Please avoid at all costs. I wanted to walk out 10 minutes in. The movie was two hours long it felt like a lifetime.

Bad movie that seemed 4 hours long. The director could have cut 50%of the movie and still made his psuedo erotic film "trying to be arty" excuse for a movie It totally wastes good acting by Cruz and Kingsley. Most of the audience had confused looks at the end ---- probably because they had just awakened. Don't waste your money.

Gorgeous film. Reaches just about everyone who finds time moving just a bit too fast
