    Well made; great soundtrack; but about as interesting to watch as rotting meat.

    If somebody told me the plot, I'd love it. But the director's too eager and sloppy narrative makes it all look like unbridled teen angst. Too much vital energy thrust at you. And it's a pity, because the ending is good, it makes the characters and the whole story seem plausible and even affecting.

  1. No matter what is going on in the story, these star-crossed lovers are always fascinating to watch.

    Has its share of surprises, especially in the performances of its two main players.
  3. A solid, well-crafted drama, with a tight script, sharp editing, and strong performances by the leads. Beware, however: This is no comedy.
