    Although it's in the same genre as "The English Patient," it's a vastly better movie --more surprising and original, more rigorous and sympathetic. This film is oddly shaped. It is also heartbreaking and exhilarating.
  2. A handsomely staged and craftily constructed tearjerker.
  3. 60
    Good old-fashioned romantic entertainment, just restrained enough to skirt schmaltz.
  4. Partly a travelogue for the Greek islands, partly a simplistic love story, and generally a rehash of the Oscar-winning "Mediterraneo," as if we needed even the first one.

    Ms. Cruz...once again proves her inability to give a bad performance even under the worst of circumstances.
  6. Given the polyglot nature of the cast, with actors from at least five countries taking their best shots at the English language, it's unclear why Cage felt he needed an accent or, stranger still, why it took him a reported seven months to come up with this one.

    Probably the most horrifying stuff I've seen all week.

    It's a very nice romantic story with some action and with a very great sound track especially the Pelagia Song.

    Unreliable character sketches - in particular the PTSD case is far out. But beautiful views.
