Has anyone seen this, or is it one of those films that gets released in Oz first? Or was it shown here because the Melbourne Film Festival is about to kick off?

Any way, it's swooningly fabulous to look at, with Tilda Swinton looking gorgeous in Italian knitwear, and Fendi dresses. All repressed emotions and fabulous decor. While the swarthy chef prepares food to die for. And the rest

As with all subtitled films, you have to pay a lot of attention, and so much is implied, the old brain goes into overdrive. Only one icky moment, when the lovers disport themselves rustically; full of Lawrentian imagery (boak).

It sounds like I didn't like it, but like so many really good films, Mr E keep coming back to it, and will look out for it on DVD - in the section labelled "Arthouse" at Blockbuster.

I'd really like to see this, love Tilda, got some good reviews, looks like a proper old fashioned movie.

The title of the Daily Mirror's review of this was 'I am Bored', which sums it up for me. It looked wonderful, but watching a film thinking 'wow, what a fantastic dress, would that suit me', or 'I love those dishes' is no substitute for an interesting plot. Reminded me of 'Cache' which I saw a few years ago.
