Variety
From a filmmaking point of view, this is a work that the old Hollywood moguls themselves would have been proud to present.

I read the book a few years ago and the atmosphere really stayed with me. I hoped the movie would do the same or at least that I would enjoy it as much as the book. But I was disappointed. The movie is nice and full of beauty, atmospheric and...
