    There are few things more depressing than a weeper that doesn't make you weep.
  2. Doesn’t seem as if it would translate easily to the big screen. It hasn't.

    Rarely have so many gifted women labored so tastefully to bring forth such a wee, lockjawed mouse.

    Evening proves that there are such things as mistakes, by featuring two hours of bad choices and half-executed ideas.

    Vanessa Redgrave spends Evening dying, and so does Evening.
  6. Redgrave still manages to inspire awe, yet a poetically prosaic moment like the one in which she goes chasing after a butterfly is enough to throw a net over the whole thing.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The good part of this movie is the strong cast. Otherwise it tries hard to be artistic, but the plot moves way too slowly. Also I do not like that they made some kind of love idol from this man who kind of destroyed the lives of many (even if it wasn't his intention) . Ann spent her remaining time on her death bed regretting that she had never married him, whereas the death of poor Buddy was just swept over like he didn't even matter to her. Full Review »
