Drab settings let down emotional drama
Michael Winterbottom is the king of the low budget art house film, but here he goes too far. Genoa is clearly a cheap European city in which to film and it is used as the main backdrop as if the fourth actor along with the father (Colin Firth) and his two daughters. Narrow Medieval streets and alleys, ancient churches and some modest beaches have a level of interest, but too much is drab like the dark apartment where they stay. Of course, as with Winterbottom you get some fabulous depth of emotion between the cast, but the unexceptional settings starts to wear and your attention wanders, rather like the young daughters in the film....
