What we think

Though both Sharpe’s direction and a lot of the performances end up feeling a bit mannered at times, it’s nice to see this kind of visual ambition and general sense of fun in what can be the most uninventive of genres.

What others think

The movie is always frantically badgering us with sad or funny or chaotic little vignettes, and often apparently trying to absorb Wain’s syrupy vision.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Despite the downbeat second half, the film retains its eccentric charm.
Phillip Kemp Sight and Sound
The film is shot in fairy-tale 4:3 and riddled with creative flourishes that fail to compensate for the punctuated linearity of its plot.
