Beyond its patchy editing texture and unnecessary clichéd dialogues, the great cast which help create some of the sensitivity a story like this deserved ends up being its only trump card. However, while summing its many messy parts, the film remains a sad poor portrait of Dylan Thomas as a mere drunken buffoon, and of the two women who loved him unconditionally.
Arkadaşlar, "erkek olsaydın seni tavlardım", "sen beni tavlardın", "ah bir erkek olsaydın" zırvalarını bırakalım, ilerleyelim artık. Yapma canım, yapma güzel arkadaşım. Biraz kalıbımızın insanı, kiera'mızın knightley'si, sienna'mızın miller'ı olalım lütfen. Siz evinizde de mi böyle yapıyosunuz lütfen ama.
I only love the "looks" of the movie with the dreamy and out of focus scenes. Since Keira Knightly is in it, of course I would expect this to be something as moving as Atonement. But it didn't. The story is moody. And the characters have a little depths that it's hard for me to sympathize for them. It also doesn't make sense why these two women were throwing themselves at such a despicable character.
