Moving Masterpiece
5 December 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Great music, great acting, great directing, quick pacing, great camera work. It's a perfect melodrama of the highest kind. It's about tensions between social classes, but ultimately, it is about more than that: the quest for human love and passion, which is really a quest for divine love and passion. It's not really about jealousy, but about the quest for transcendence of the mundane, a quest for the numinous. The final scene is so moving, it is hard to hold back tears. It resembles Michaelangelo's Pieta, and only then do we realize that what we have been watching is not so much a high caliber drama, as an elegy for all those countless many who have been crucified on the cross of love.
