    Himalaya lacks such lightness, humor, and grace, offering instead the surface beauty of an ancient and inviolate culture.

    Even Mastroianni cannot hold our attention for over three hours.

    The Inheritance is most effective in its first half...But the film falters as it moves closer to home and the heart, veering off into melodramatic and quasi-surreal scenarios.

    Bening's comic gifts make the most of Ronald Harwood's witty screenplay, though she falls flat in her character's rare moments of sincerity.

    The complex questions Walk on Water raises receive only confused answers.

    • 50 Leslie Camhi
    The admirable Gainsbourg refrains from overacting, but her leading men never quite transcend the emptiness and inanity of their characters' dilemma.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    Despite the choppy script and cartoonishly bad villains, what emerges is a compelling tale of the moral compromises a corrupt system demands of even its most unwilling participants.

    With improbable charm, Gabizon knits it all together, his characters' sexual obsessions and earthiness tempered by a soulful melancholy.

    This extraordinary story still sparks controversy in France, but in Berri's hands, it never comes alive...a shadow play of historical icons, rather than a portrait of people in love.

    Flawed but fascinating.
    • 61 Metascore

    Disturbing and compelling.

    Wargnier has assembled a stellar French and Russian cast, but all that talent can't overcome his heavy-handed screenplay.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Camhi
    A bit naive and formless.
    • 59 Metascore

    It does best when it leaves behind hothouse literary discussions and closes in on these two legendary behemoths, battling for sexual supremacy.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    It's a giddy farce worthy of Lucy and Ethel, and Peploe plays up the buffoonery.

    "No poetry after Auschwitz," Theodor Adorno proclaimed. One sometimes wishes he'd added, "And no big-name cinema either."
    • 53 Metascore

    The writerly restraint that confines them to the airport is admirable, though the fairy-tale ending in Acapulco seems like a throwaway.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Camhi
    The pacing feels choppy, and the characters' emotions are sometimes too sudden to be believable. (One exception is Rhys Ifans, affecting as Amelia's long-suffering and neglected suitor.)
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    There's much to admire here, including an often witty script and a cast that includes Theresa Russell, Seymour Cassel, and the irrepressible Lupe Ontiveros (Celia's mother-in-law).
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    Brought to life by the weirdness of its subject matter and the risks Madhur Jaffrey takes in her brilliant performance.
    • 52 Metascore

    Baltasar Kormákur's wacky version of "King Lear," set in an Icelandic village where virtually everyone plays the fool.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Camhi
    The film's broad performances and heavy-handed moralizing strike a note of condescension sure to be heard by the alienated teenager within us all.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Camhi
    The filmmakers skillfully evoke the sense of menace that nature holds for many urban dwellers. -- Sometimes, though, the editing is choppy, and the film could use more of a script.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Camhi
    It lacks the toughness and social insights of its Mexican new wave predecessors like "Amores Perros." And even as the story of one woman's midlife crisis, it's a bit lightweight.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    It traces a sustained and moving portrait of the worldly Sam, whose despair as the society he embraced abandons him is both clear-eyed and devastating.

    If you can suspend your disbelief regarding Nello's naïveté, this film offers some quiet pleasures.

    Though Hopkins lovingly re-creates the surfaces of shtetl life, its deep spirituality seems to elude him.
