    One of the best movies I have ever seen. Tom Hiddleston is the best new actor out there. He has a way of making a movie come to life. A must buy!!!! :)

    Incredibly annoying and pretentious! Husband and I walked out after 15 utterly excruciating minutes and got a refund.

    the dreary story of an early 20th centruy horny housewife has zero relevance in today\'s world. everybody will like weisz\'s performance (she does dark well)--but it won\'t carry this dated piece of \"cine art trash.\" all the baloney about a woman\'s hunger to reach her full erotic potential et. al. may be intellectually touching--but the movie\'s an awful bore!

    We all respect for the work of everyone involved in the making of this movie both my wife and I thought trhat we could have walked out if we knew that each other wanted to. Both thought that maybe the other wanted to stay so we stayed and soffer. This movie, is blessed from the beginning by atrocious violin music (and I generally love classical violin from Bach to Shostacovich and on). The story is weak and the 1940s style that it wants to mimic is dark and tired. I was aching for a moment of sun light. The two stars are for the actors: for thev rest: zero.

    Great movie, although extremely dark. Fabulous acting and set. No sugar coating the \"real\" dynamics of relationships in this movie. I certainly left the theater feeling blue...However, I enjoy movies with the power to shift my thinking.

    TWO STARS because it was not a good time at the movies. The two stars are for the actors and set but the script was just too dreary. People don\'t go to the theater to drown their sorrows and walk out with more sorrows. They go to escape and learn something or feel something other than dreariness. I wanted to leave five minutes in but I didn\'t want to squeeze over people to get out. This was a movie in the \'melancholia mood\' throughout-it was depressing. The subject is love and not much else...if you can call that love, as the mature women told the young pretty woman. Love can become a passion and it can come to feel like an obsession and that is when you will experience a \"broken leg\" in your heart because all that you love will want to escape you. THE MOVIE DIDN\'T SAY THIS, I\'m saying this to all those who have yet to learn how to love. Love is energy. The wrong ingredients and it can turn on you like a monster. The love in this movie was lined with lust. So, two powerful drives that create a \'passion\' and no it does not end well the first time but is barely inferred toward success on the second go round. Some people have advised throughout the ages to just break, make a clean break, let it hurt really bad for a while and then get up and get going but for those who want to wallow in it and carry it on and on... then they\'re in for a hellish ride. And long dramatic closures are dangerous. It was a love triangle but the other man who loved her had a career, a mother he loved and a life and friends he loved while he did love her. I kept expecting him to douse himself but no, he never did. He had more to live for than her. The reason I wanted to leave this movie right away because I can\'t stand people who want to do away with themselves and think nothing of what they\'re doing to others. She turned on the gas in a rooms-for-rent house. Other people lived there.--MO
