Interesting failure. Its clear the director had far more ambition than anyone would expect for a project like this but then at some point the studios got involved and we're left with an odd mix of sensual imagery/art direction (almost 70s Czech new wave!) and typical American rom-com schmaltz. Its the awful music that's most at fault here. Imagine if they kept Michael Nyman's stunning (but "too European") score?
This gets really offtrack with the weird romantic subplot but the beginning is incredible. 2 of the most interesting actresses of their time as sister witches killing an abusive man literally cleansed me
