Turgid, sloooooow, glacier-like pace. Not helped by the limited emotional range of Afleck which ranges from la belle indifference to overwhelming rage in a heartbeat. Although in color, the location , season, and costumes make this a virtually black and white film. Not-so-pregnant pauses riddle the film in homage to European tradition and contributing to boredom squared. If I had to pay for this at a theater I would have demanded my money back. I should ask Amazon Prime to compensate me for the wasted two hours that I could have spent more productively.
