close to that, IMHO.

First, Shaw and Rossellini were excellent especially the former. I'm almost certain that they both won't be bumped from my SLA ballot when the time comes.

Visually precise. Some striking shots. Something about the shots; made the locations/story world real palpable. It had a tactile quality which is something that I love. Koteas was great. Really liked the ending.

Offhand, no complaints or criticisms, really, except for this:


the scene after the rooftop sex in which Paltrow's character said, "That was beautiful" and the left tit business and pretty much that whole scene. Just thought it was corny.

**End Spoilers**
