A Painting
12 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film is a painting rather than a film. You can see the money that has gone into the costumes and set, but no investment whatsoever in directing the actors. It lacked warmth, colour and texture. What you see on the screen is purely cosmetic.
