    The Variety review is the most spot-on. This sadly pales in comparison to any of his films in the revenge trilogy (even the mostly mediocre Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance). Good performances (not surprisingly) but an uneven script that really went nowhere and had more than a few holes in the plot. His films are always beautiful to look at though and there are some scenes of brilliance. Just The Variety review is the most spot-on.

    A terrific film. Loosely based on Emile Zola's novel "Therese Raquin."
  2. Stunning production quality and the story's extremity should arouse interest beyond the specialty Asian market.

    An overlong stygian comedy that badly needs a transfusion of genuine inspiration.
