Dramatically gutless, gorgeously photographed rambling travelogue with no goal or progression, no character development and an apparent terror of emotional confrontation.
Kate Winslet is almost director-proof. She, the girls who play her daughters and the photography are the best things about this meandering tale of an upper-middle class, twittish young mother dragging her two daughters around Morrocco in 1972. She apparently wants to find something spiritual, but is very half hearted in her search for it. Things do happen, but almost none of the potential character, spiritual or cultural conflict is interestingly explored -if at all. The punches are constantly pulled when it comes to emotional confrontation. A typical scene is where a Christian teacher tries to steal one of Kate's daughters. Kate confronts the woman, and we assume we will now see what our heroine is really made of. But no: the confrontation takes place behind a closed door! There are some nice moments and some very clunky ones.(Some of the kids' dialogue was especially woeful). However, it's hats off to the photography, which is utterly gorgeous.
