"I have to agree with most of the comments here. I think you and Peter Bradshaw have been fooled into expecting a great film. It's really, really not. Technically it's excellent (perhaps a little too excellent, in the way that 'Climates' was pretty but boring), and the performances are great. However, as an evocation of a woman's mental breakdown it has nothing on 'A woman under the influence' or 'The piano teacher'- it offered pretty much nothing into her mindset. As a study of middle class guilt it is weak and undeveloped, and pales in comparison to 'Hidden'.
A big mistake."
