Poorly constructed


Although I loved the journey and the way the whole thing filmed, I think inclusion of two many voice over monologues and flashbacks cheapens it. The prologue is pathetic and the epilogue is confusing. They've probably should have just started the movie in Vienna and end in Moscow and tell the backstory in dialogues between Dash and her while she war writing the play.

I agree. The flashbacks were a bit intrusive. I was hoping for more scenes between Fonda and Robards. The two of them had great chemistry and I wanted to know more about their relationship.

I Highly Disagree with you. It is Aesthetically fine as it is. You just lack good taste in cinema.

Yes! Disagreement with you equals POOR TASTE!!!

I think the flashbacks were ok but they needed to introduce more characters and context for them. For instance, I didn't think they introduced who Sammy and Anne Marie were in relationship to Lillian.
