In the sequence set in 1919, a poster for the film Broken Blossoms (1919) is seen. That film features a romance between an Asian (Chinese) man and a white woman, paralleling events in this film. See more »
Every moment of this film was stilted, corny and overdone.
It is a film which loves itself too much.
Caviezil and Dillon both over-act horribly and just embarrassed and bored me.
Ryan Potter was engaging and more convincing but swamped amongst the buzzing egos around him. The end is on TV now and it runs like a school play to the very last moment.
And as another review mentions here a ludicrously small amount of the narrative is dedicated to the main theme, the 'transgressional' love affair.
The pace is dreadful and the acting verges on farcical on many occasions.
An utterly self absorbed film.
(The scenery, props and costumes were wonderful hence 3 stars and not one)
