    It isn't as ridiculous as this year's other version of a local best seller set during WWII ("Captain Corelli's Mandolin"), but it's arguably even less entertaining.

    Director Gillian Armstrong turns Sebastian Faulks' pungent novel about World War II into a soporific.
  3. The movie works so diligently to convey a spirit of heroic uplift and fails so completely that it feels like a tragic misfire.
