While it's possible to view this movie like a short-story collection, putting check marks beside the selections one likes best, to do so would deny the pleasure of experiencing this beautifully crafted, intricately designed story the way it was intended, as an organic whole. [11 June 1999, Calendar, p.F-8] Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
It's almost as lame-brained as any Hollywood blockbuster, if prettier and more pretentious. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
Some will say this film is overly ambitious, but what the hell. The man put five years of his life into making this epic mystery. We can surely give it two hours of ours. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly
Carefully crafted, lushly romantic. Full Review
David Stratton
Fails on a number of counts, mostly because the individual stories aren't very gripping. Full Review
