I discovered the this movie on On Demand and was delighted. Yes, it deals with potentially depressing content, but its beauty is a testament to the depths of human emotion. I think this is a stunning film. Tucci's character is complex. He engenders pathos as well as being a bit off-putting at times. Patricia Clarkson does a grand job of portraying the subtleties in each of the personae her character takes on. Both actors area achingly beautiful in this movie. I liked the mise en scene created by the shabbily elegant club that evokes the early decades of the 20th century. The score/music is haunting. The movie is rather like a play, but with the bonus of close-ups add immeasurably to the experience. Tucci knows tragedy, and it certainly shows here. I feel fortunate to have found this gem.
