5 to 7 — Be transported by this romance that will make you think — 9*/10

  • Story: Romance born of the clash of two cultures and two very different point of view. Makes you think. I hate the close-minded American puritanical view. Also, the way writing is presented tends to fall into pop psychology.
  • Setting: Very opulent, but then it's part of the story and not just only an affectation, so it's sort of forgivable.
  • Style: Slow and emotional. You really have the time to feel what is happening.
  • Pacing: Good. Very gradual build up. Each scene is focused on one thing and then you go to the next, very naturally.
  • Ending: Realistic, as it should be, as most people would have done.
  • Epilogue: It's so long that it can almost be considered the ending. I usually hate epilogues. In this case, it's not too bad, probably because it feels more like an ending, since some important realizations only come then.
  • Dialogs: Excellent. Maybe a bit on the philosophical side, a lot of the sentence can be used as Twitter post, and I did a few, but still within the realm of possibility.
  • Characters: Deep and heartfelt. Touching. Easily identifiable.
  • Acting: Superb.
  • Known actors: Anton Yelchin, Bérénice Marlohe, Olivia Thirlby, Lambert Wilson, Glenn Close and Frank Langella.
  • Cameos: Eric Stoltz.
  • Visuals: Beautiful.
  • Costumes: Incredible wardrobe.
  • Score: Touching. Perfect for the romance and the melancholy.
  • Synopsis & informationhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt2486678/
  • Entertainment value: High, if you're in the mood for romance without comedy.
  • Who is it for? Anyone looking for something romantically touching, strong in meaning that will make you think.
