    No real narrative arc. This could have been a short. The conclusion is one which is far too predictable.

    There are hardly words to describe just how terribly awful this movie is. It's a pedantic wannabe French film with a Scottish accent. Save some time and watch a wigged out friend of yours smoke a cigarette -- that's about what this film adds up to. This will be the last time I ever trust the Cannes Film Festival.

    Very slow.. Not much of a story.

    Ramsay's second feature is an extraordinary adaptation of fellow-Scot Alan Warner's acclaimed novel.

    More engrossing than convincing.
  3. As Morvern, Morton is disconcertingly enigmatic, often bordering on catatonic. But she carries the movie effortlessly. And even though we're on the outside looking in, she carries us along, too.
