    Overacted stage play that should never have been put on film. Insulting at best!

    Seriously the most painful moviegoing experience of my life. Absolutely worthless in any regard.

    A pure unmuddled storyline from which the intrigues do not detract. It is a classic comedy of errors played with with tongue in the cheek abandon (which some reviewers did not quite catch). I liked the glimpses of the audience in the garden.

    Well, Bertolucci plus Kingsley and Sorvino should've created a wonder, but movie editing is clumsy and Sorvino is not that believable. !8th century plays usually boring in 21st century unless they have some modern interpretation and fantastic performance of actors. That did not occur this time...

    Indeed, a triumph of love: love of performance, love of joy, and, above all else, love of love itself.
  2. It could have been something special, but two things drag it down to mediocrity -- director Clare Peploe's misunderstanding of Marivaux's rhythms, and Mira Sorvino's limitations as a classical actress.

    Sets you nearer than theater permits -- and further back than most movies dare. A magic vantage.
