    Though modest in scale, this romantic gem constitutes yet another superb leap in the evolution of Figgis' career.

    Figgis's film doesn't match its reach.

    Fiery but turgid adaptation of the 1890 August Strindberg play.
  4. The dialogue may be crisply idiomatic, but there's finally nothing realistic about the speed with which the characters hurtle through their mood swings and power plays.
  5. 50
    His [Director Mike Figgis's] techniques do make the film at least watchable.
  6. 50
    Using current hand-held camera technology to ape the political and esthetic sensibility of the 1960s.
  7. A strong contender for Worst Picture of All Time.
