Lines of Wellington Regisserad av Valeria Sarmiento
The onslaught of the “Jacobins” is seen with the gimlet eye it requires — too often, the slaughter at Napoleon’s hands has been depicted as heroic, a canard Ruiz, Sarmiento, and screenwriter Carlos Saboga have no truck with. Here, summary execution, even off-handedly of horses and infants, is de rigueur.

With its awkward piling-on of situations and secondary (and tertiary, and quarternary…) characters, its miasma of languages and accents, and its interminable historical pantomiming, Lines of Wellington devolves into a throwback to nineties euro-pudding, or even the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink DiLaurentiis-esque coproduction extravaganzas of the sixties. Much of the blame for it lies with Ruiz’s production model.

It often plays like a failed imitation of the late auteur [Raul Ruiz], with the same hypnotically lengthy camera moves and embrace of both high and low cultural references, yet absent any animating spirit.
