Even cut for British release, Laura runs for 90 minutes. Mere moments into this soft focus, soft-core story of a talented sculptor and a young girl whose love overcomes her mother's objections, his blindness, and the law relating to sex with minors, you will grasp the importance of this piece of information: only paedophiles are likely to stay to the end. Priapic men and pubescent girls wrestling with Art, Love and each other in the exotic south of France may sound very merry; but wet people in an arid landscape don't add up to much more than muck, no matter how tastefully photographed.
