    The second half, though, simply descends into chaotic banality as the sisters await their fate.

    Rather than take a broad-brush approach director Muntean boggs us down in the detail of an adulterous affair. There are some similarities with his previous outing "Boogie" in that the main character is a man having a premature mid-life crisis.

    A feast for the eyes, Mysteries of Lisbon deals with 19th century passions, love affairs and escapades on a broad canvas. It might have made a lovely TV series, parsed out over several weeks, but at one sitting it's a challenge.

    Devotees and the curious may find it mildly diverting, otherwise this effort is not for the faint-headed.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Richard Mowe
    It has its moments, although the charmless main character Julio (played by Diego Noguera) begins to get on your nerves, as he seems incapable of extricating himself from difficult situations.

    Leigh certainly has a sense of cinematic style and Emily Browning possesses a fragile beauty that hides a remarkably resilient interior. It's a pity, however, that Jane Campion did not exert a more powerful sway on the result.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Richard Mowe
    Strictly for patient, gay-friendly audiences, this drawn-out melodrama about an ageing drag star in overstays its welcome.
    • 34 Metascore

    As tales of troubled families go, it may have aspirations to be like "Ordinary People," but it falls way short.
