2.5. Ugly and unfunny. Thing is a director with a comedic talent could do something with this, as the former-student-radical-now-hopeless-loser-who-still-sticks-to-his-outdated-ideals presents even richer comic possibilities than the former-student-radical-now-smug-bourgeois. Alas, this one drags. A couple mildly amusing scenes (what a director with real flair could have done with them!), a lot of missed opportunity.
