(de) wrote: Very slow moving with no real beginning or end and not a lot in between. Slightly sexy with a few dick shots; but that's about the extent of entertainment in this movie.

(mx) wrote: Seeing Huntsville in a movie was SO COOL! The movie itself was a little boring at times. Some parts were good (love story). I was just excited seeing Huntsville and recognizing the palces :)
(ag) wrote: One of my favourite films. romanic and funny. an excellent film.
(ca) wrote: I really don't know if this movie was well made. It was somehow fun to watch, but as I HUGE Chopin fan, I really didn't like that Hugh Grant was casted (I totally hate him, don't know why). And having read Chopin's biographies, I find the Waltz 'Minute' story inaccurate...
(es) wrote: Well, I was a huge Dark Shadows fan. I actually liked this better than House of Dark Shadows which I did not think was true to the characters. I read that this movie was massacred in the editing. Still love it.

(mx) wrote: Not as good as Dangerous Liaisons. I don't know why Milos Forman changed the ending to a much softer one. It gave the movie a completely different tone.
(es) wrote: Beautiful cinematography, brilliant score, and a well rounded performance by Matthew Mcconaughey make this movie a good film, that has the potential to win some awards down the road. The ending is not the greatest, but overall the movie as a whole is very solid. One that I would recommend.
