2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly very dull, 13 Jun 2011
Yes, I caved into the hype and eagerly grabbed a copy of this book. It's great if you like reading pages and pages about stuff, and if you want to see how the author will twist the netsuke into yet another implausible new metaphor. The rest of you will have to wait until about 200 pages in when the Nazis arrive and suddenly you start to care about the otherwise rich and materialistic Ephrussis.

Then it gets boring again.

5.0 out of 5 stars spellbinding tricksy love story, 20 Oct 2000
Quite why I am the first person to review this sublime piece of film making I have no idea. Amazon should have been calling a halt to an avalanche of praise by now. Why? Because this is the most beautiful film I have seen in years. And anyone who's seen it should be writing to Amazon to say so. Well, I am. So here goes. Lovers Of The Arctic circle is a tease. It's all about chance, fate, time and even circles - and yet all these intellectual conceits are woven seemlessly into a truly heartbreaking love story. If you have a beating heart, check it out. And then go and find The Red Squirrel and Tierra by the same director.
