    Maybe if the actors had been coached to actually act, it would have come across better, but their painfully stilted delivery is leaden rather than campily artificial.
    • 35 Metascore

    The film is a painfully silly, laughably naive Romance with a capital “R.”
    • tbd Metascore

    Even if Tornatore were deliberately aiming for the artificiality that clings to nearly every frame, the pic would still feel needlessly airless, hampered by an Italian-to-English script translation that may be precise but lacks naturalism.
    • 23 Metascore

    A low-budget potboiler with an overblown score not loud enough to drown out the hackneyed dialogue.

    Stunningly unsuccessful on all levels, this gothic dud wants to play on the real and metaphoric anxieties of post-adolescents discovering who they are, but the ham-fisted script is incapable of a multilayered approach, while the helming and editing are at the level of mediocre TV.
