  • Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film Smoking

    It's just such a masterpiece..Toby and Celia Teasdale are characters for the ages, absolutely.Sabine Azéma is a hurricane of a woman & they both are amazing in all their roles but it is THESE two(& Hepplewick the janitor)..the scenes of a marriage..roads not taken,each so masterful. There is a pan along the painted scenery in the hotel that is one of the most beautiful things I have seen. It all hurts..and soothes.▽
