Beautifully acted, beautifully told
15 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A gem of a film.

"The Round" seems to be telling us that love is fickle, cruel, painful, disappointing, playful, and puzzling -- it all depends on who's sleeping with whom.

Seamlessly joined by the suave songs of a top-hatted narrator, these tales vary somewhat in their interest and quality. None reach the poignancy of the second tale, in which a simple girl is loved and left by a cad in uniform. Other stories approached tedium, like the one involving the chambermaid and the wealthy scion.

In all, they manage to form a satisfying whole. Unique!
