  • A near-perfect confection, a beautifully executed Hollywood all-you-can-eat salad bar of glamour, plot twists, breathtaking Mediterranean vistas, and jazz. show more

  • Takes startling - and startlingly unpleasant - turns. This is not a film with anything approximating a conventional ending. show more

  • The talented Mr. Minghella has made an imperfect movie but not an impersonal one. His morality tale means to get under the skin, and does.
