Rowing with the Wind

Rowing with the Wind

In the summer of 1816, Percy Shelley, his mistress Mary, and her stepsister Claire visit Lord Byron at Lake Geneva. Byron challenges each to write a horror story, and Mary begins her novel, Frankenstein. She imagines the monster becoming real, and for the next six years, as tragedy befalls those around her, she believes the personification of her imagination is the cause. Against this backdrop, Claire has Byron's baby then is estranged from him and barred from her daughter. Byron and Percy continue their friendship, the one self-centered and decadent, the other wildly idealistic. The Shelleys take up residence near Pisa.

Rowing with the Wind torrent reviews

Carlos I (br) wrote: Kick ass little horror movie. The claustrophobic setting and sound design are enough to creep you out. There's a cool story, aided by a couple great actors. This director is one to keep an eye out for.

Anthony D (br) wrote: As much as I may want it to be a Woody Allen film, it isn't. Sharon Stone seems oddly uncomfortable playing a woman.

Casey M (ca) wrote: One of my favorite Woody Allan flicks. Larry David is hilarious. Evan Rachel Wood is charming. The write is fun and witty. The story is quirky and highly enjoyable. Great feel good film.

William W (jp) wrote: Not too bad... Had some funny moments

Jonathan P (de) wrote: The second installment of the Russian vampire trilogy is a big improvement over the complex and dull first film. Day Watch continues the story of the hoards of "light" and "dark" entities and though some of the complexities that plagued the first remain Day Watch is a bit easier to follow and much more interesting.

Elliott F (ru) wrote: A solid Wilder comedy. Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau (1966's Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner) deliver two excellent performances in this watchable satire.

Linda M (us) wrote: I love this movie - Think Beauty and the Beast with Barbara at her best.

Colin G (br) wrote: 30 years on and it's still an amazing film.
