This isn't terrible, but you want more...
18 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As far as directing goes, I guess Babenco did a fairly good job. The cinematography nor the soundtrack evokes any real emotional reaction from the viewer.

The acting is decent and no one really stands out. If you look at the other comments posted, you may see a few that make reference to the number of sex scenes.

This is good.

If this movie didn't have sex scenes, you'd fall asleep.

This is a drama that was probably adopted from a really good book. The script wasn't written well and in the end, you'll feel like you wasted a significant deal of your time.

I'm not sure this needs to be added to your Netflix list.
