Visually the set and costumes brought you straight into the period - the costume and set designers had done their jobs superbly. Everything looked straight out of the amazing paintings that litter the walls of all the great art museums. The story itself was good, but there just seemed to be something lacking in this movie, I think the chemistry was lacking between the main characters, they all seemed a bit wooden in their roles. Although we were given a few sex scenes, they seemed to lack any passion and it is often the quieter moments when a look or a glance or a touch is more real and full of emotion, and there were little to none of these given to the audience.
I wanted the movie to flow too, and yet it felt a little disjointed and slow, trudging through the scenes. What could have been a great movie, was just ok. 3/5
