Wickedly delightful
25 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is far beyond the ken of the average viewer as it is a dialog driven vehicle full of clever nuances and duplicitous intention. Lena Olin is undoubtedly one of the most talented and charismatic, not to mention sensually pulsating actresses to light up the silver screen. Whether she is playing the utterly delightful Sabina (Unbearable lightness...) or the chillingly vicious Mona (Romeo is bleeding), she is a master of the arts. Willem Defoe, while not one of my favorite leading men was surprisingly good in this out of character role, one that he pulled off quite well. Miranda Richardson, as always, was picture perfect in her part, and all of the other cast members were very good. An excellent movie for couples, this wickedly delightful love story is much more thoughtful than the average period piece sexual romp and that might disappoint some. But sex, settings, and Willem Defoe's muscles notwithstanding, the relationships, the characters and the quick witted dialog earn it a 10 from me.
