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

    Fiery but turgid adaptation of the 1890 August Strindberg play.
  3. 75
    Effectively cast and shot with exciting immediacy.
  4. An arid, uninvolving film that suffers from Burrows' miscasting as the vain Julie.
  5. 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.
  6. Figgis remains a compelling storyteller, holding you with the intensity of his vision and his mastery of nuance.
  7. A strong contender for Worst Picture of All Time.

    One of the best films I've ever seen. It's visually compelling, intense and superbly acted. An overwhelming directoral success!
