Ruined by sound track
17 December 2009 | by lucilleiacovelliSee all my reviews

The sound track virtually destroyed a great film. Cast and

and acting are brilliant. However, the music is enough to turn a great film into a farce. I had to force myself to watch it through to the end.

Very unfortunate. Music absolutely awful. I would have preferred reading subtitles to a silent version of this film rather than the inane music which accompanies it. Compositions in the sound track make a mockery of the music of the time period.

This is a sad instance where everything great about a film has been negatively overcome by a single elemental factor.. the "music". If you can get past that, or better yet, if you can read the lips of the actors, the acting, visuals and story are interesting.. but the music is so awful it distracts one's attention from the positive elements of the film.

What were the makers of this film thinking with that SOUNDTRACK???
