I agree with Reuben.. Still only gave it 2 stars though because it was very slow and almost painful
Sorry, fell asleep too often to say much about this, it didn't hold my attention.
I enjoyed this movie. Definitely one for the over 50s who would appreciate it.
If you're having a bad day - dont' watch. Slow, depressing and if you are over 50 you will end up suicidal.
Rossellini is a marvellous actress and the theme was well constructed, The repetitive, boring music, however, was far too loud, necessitating frequent volume adjustment.
I really enjoyed this movie. My guess is that past reviews were by younger people and so this is why it got such a low rating. I am older and could really indentify with the characters. Rosselinni is superb as always and I thought Hurt played the role to a tee. The interpersonal relationship between the main characters was subtle but true to life. Direction could have been a little more adventurous but still did a great job.
I should have read the reviews.
Me and my Partner watched 10minutes of this and turned it off, so boring.
I gave it another try on my own as I hate to be defeated watching movies.
However, I too turned it off [ just a few minutes where we were up too first time of viewing.] I found it so slow dull and boring.
So I cannot really give this Movie a fair rating as I did not watch very much of it.
I got this bEcause of William Hurt. I am of the age of the actors but didn't do anything for me at all. I found it hard to hear, feeling that they mumbLed and I DON'T HAVE A HEARING PROBLEM!! I related to the theme somewhat however. To say it is a comedy leaves a bit to be to the imagination. Very slow too. Disappointed. Sad that a real life situation wasnt protrayed better.
Absolutely agree with all the negative reviews. It was just mind numbing, pointless and had no direction. Frankly very depressing and these otherwise wonderful actors are frankly wasted here.
All in all, pretty bad....cringeworthy and ridiculous attitudes about ageing......
This is one of the worst movies I've rented. William Hurt's English accent comes and goes. The screen play is badly written. The acting is 2nd rate. The plot is unbelievable.
very slow movie that went nowhere
Only watched this film for about half an hour poor storyline, bad acting. Worst movie I have seen in a long. long time! ! !
Couldn't finish watching this movie - I fell asleep out of boredom. The idea of the story was good but the action was so drawn out and slow. There were many long moments of angst and self reflection which I found hard to follow. In all, very disappointing.
