Amateur hour at the surrealist factory
23 March 2010 | by boyd1955See all my reviews

First the good ... The landscapes and architecture in the film are absolutely beautiful which makes it all the sadder that nothing was made of them This folly ( of the uninteresting kind ) plays out like a flat episode of 1980s Doctor Who ... Peter Firth does his best with what he has to work with, but with a director that obviously hasn't got a clue he isn't able to salvage anything. The story and script may well have come from a really interesting source but the writing and assembly is completely incompetent Somebody mentioned that it could be played and appreciated silent ... I think they are right ... It would be more worthwhile silent as it would seem like there was a possibility of something good going one here Oh and the lead actress ... Well ... It seems like she may have just stepped out of "Acting for television - 1 " ... Abysmal The little man however was fabulous
