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
Cruz's performance deserves to be seen widely, and it should place her again in line for prizes, but the story's pretensions and downbeat mood will not endear the film to audiences. show more
A richly textured and compelling film. show more
I left out my rating with my review earlier. EXCELLENT!!!!
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.
