"Based on a novel by Kazuo Ishiguro, produced/directed by Merchant-Ivory, starring Hopkins and Thompson plus the breath-taking scenery and setting...how can this film not be one of the best ever made?"
"Al Pacino at his finest (yes I have seen Serpico, Scarface, Heat, Godfather, Dog day Aftternoon etc). The dance scene is one of those brief cinematic moments that stay with you forever. Well, with me!"
"I'm not a fan of the Coen brothers, but Frances McDormand and William H Macy were so good, the screenplay so weird, the snowcovered landscape so poignant.- everything was just so uncommonly well done."
