I love Julia Roberts and I love Clive Owen, but why they had to waste their talent in this movie I will never know. It just did not work, the language was foul, the f word totally over used and as one reviewer has said, there was a time when I had never seen this film...those were the days. I actually binned it! The only bit that worked for me was when Alice Ayres handed in her passport at the end, but it did leave me feeling what on earh was the point, I mean, REALLY?!!!!!
Closer... no thank you!
This is a really bad film. Looking at the cast you would expect this to be well written and directed. However, prepare yourself for the most boring and disappointing 2 hours of your life. The film starts quite well... then 20 minutes in it plummets into a nose dive that it just can't pull out of. One for the 10pence bargain bucket in service stations!
I decided to buy this after having spoken to a friend whom highly recommended it. I wasn't disappointed with the film and the acting was brilliant. It isn't however a happy upbeat film so if its cheering up your after this isn't the one for you! All in all I'd recommend it to anyone who wants an insight to affairs and relationships.

Bought it because I liked the actors/actresses in it. They were very good but the story line bit weird. Okay and quite clever film at times but a bit unbelievable and bit sad if this is supposed to be a modern day romance as such.
Enjoyed the film mostly. A complex story with good performances from the cast. Strong language so be prepared. Not for the easily offended.
