Has anyone seen this one ... I know it's Guiseppe Tornatore's ( Cinema Paradiso/ Malena) first English film .. An Tim Roth is brilliant .. but I have no clue when it was made and who shot it .. Any info would be appreciated . And if you have'nt seen it ... Please do yourself a favour .

Also I would like anyone who did not like it to tell me why ... Have trouble seeing any problems with it .

I got the chance to see this one in a very nice arthouse theater when it first came out. My wife and I loved it. A beautiful movie, and very unusual. Besides the excellent Tim Roth, the actor who plays his friend, the trumpet player, is simply marvelous.

Years ago I got to chat with Roger Deakins and he mentioned how much he liked the movie and cinematography. I haven't seen it yet.

actually I did not like it too much, although I did not dislike it, but I found that cutting abouth 30min. would have been a good idea.
Actually I saw it on a ferryboat when I was going to sardegna.

The interiors for the movie were shot at Cinecittà, here in Rome, while for exteriors the crew moved to Ukraine (the backlot at Cinecittà wasn't available at the time, and shooting in Eastern Europe is just so much cheaper). The film was photographed by Lajos Koltai, the Hungarian DP that had already worked with Tornatore on Malena.
I agree with Daniel, the movie is maybe 30 minutes too long, but I really liked it, probably because I liked the monologue the film is based on so much (Novecento, by Alessandro Baricco).
