    A tad slow by American standards, but so extremely well-acted and emotionally truthful, it's right up there with "In the Mood for Love" as prime romantic fare for the Valentine's Day weekend.

    Except when Norton is playing retarded, he and De Niro basically compete to see who can under-act the other. It's positively mesmerizing.

    Demonstrates that sometimes letting subjects and the facts speak for themselves can be quietly devastating.

    Risks trivializing history and pandering to feminist fantasies, but it may be the year's most fearless movie.

    Obviously a labor of love for all involved, including GOP mayoral candidate Michael Bloomberg, who bankrolled the production and receives full producer credit. He deserves it.

    An unforgettable portrait of a testosterone-driven era.

    Leconte turns up the erotic heat in the most gorgeously photographed black-and-white film since Wim Wenders' sublime "Wings of Desire."
