    Thematically, White Elephant is a vague animal and its true interest never truly comes into focus.

    Writer/director Trapero arguably crams too much into the film’s running time, but potent turns and Michael Nyman’s yearning score are among the compensations.

    The lensing is flawless in White Elephant, but the same can't be said for the script, which tries to keep too many thematic balls in the air without privileging any one.

    For all the competence and strength of Trapero's direction, the film is not as powerful as it might have been.
