Trivia

Sharon Stone rang director Mark Rydell repeatedly, begging for a part in the film. Rydell automatically assumed that she was after the part of the mistress, and was quite surprised when Stone revealed that she wanted to play the frigid wife. See more »

I don't understand the negative reviews
10 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I thought this film was quite good, not slow or dull by any means. It's as solid and entertaining as most "top rated" modern films of similar genre. Maybe a bit too subtle for some people? There seems to be a problem with shortening attention spans.

There is a well controlled air of the unknown through the whole thing. The rain-soaked scenery is compelling, the acting is realistic and the final sequence is powerfully done. You never quite know what's going to happen, which to me makes a good film.

Did it get bad press before it was even released? I think people sometimes go in with a bias that has no explanation. Theaters themselves can spoil movies by way of unruly viewers and other distractions. Just going to the wrong place on the wrong night can give a movie a bad rep. Get a big screen TV or projector and tune all that out.
