  • A richly textured and compelling film. show more

  • True to its title, Elegy is a spare, meditative and melancholy film. It is a deeply affecting and profoundly observed saga about love, art, beauty and, especially, mortality. show more

  • If Coixet's film is substantially more restrained than its explicit source material (Nicholas Meyer, himself a fine novelist and director of the second and best Star Trek film, adapted), it is no less provocative as a poetic meditation on love, sex and death. show more

    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.
