I missed something ... I really wanted to like this movie.
8 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How can you go wrong with two of the best actors around -- Anthony Perkins and Bibi Andersson?

Well, add one absolutely horrid actress. Mix in some overwrought music. Combine this with atrocious editing, so-so cinematography, and an adequate director.

Oh, and don't forget the lousy screenplay, filled with characters who are either pitiable or just plain unlikeable.

I had to give Mr. Perkins and Miss Andersson two stars each for surviving this catastrophe. In fact, the scenes with the two of them are the only aspects of this movie worth watching.

Both are great actors, and have worked with the best. How they found themselves caught in this mess is a mystery that ranks right up there with the Holy Trinity and the Bermuda Triangle.

OK, so now I own a copy. I think I'll keep it. If I ever get discouraged with my writing, I'll just pop this in to remind myself just how terrible some movies can be.
