Chrome receives written instructions from his unseen master via a secretary, and the master is Juliana's cousin, Fitzmaurice, who had romance with Juliana when they were young and plans to make Thomas bankrupt via setting up extravagant garden and to make Juliana come back to him.Written by
The movie was pretty good. It was entertaining and kind of cool.
The great thing about is was that it was unpredictable. The plot is exciting. the story is complicated yet not to hard to follow. The movie manages to give you a feeling of the surroundings and the characters somehow get to you. Sometimes, however, you found yourself thinking that the very thing Phillipe tried to achieve was strangeness and inordinate... which somehow in the end really remains unachieved as the movie turns out to be pretty trite.
Anyway, Ewan McGregor does an excellent acting job. And the movie is worth seeing.
