(kr) wrote: Interesting story about young elite making sentimental experiments and hurting weaker ones in the process. Sounded like a play brought to the screen with too many big sentences. As usual, Salim Kechiouche was a breath of fresh air though his acting was not perfect back then.
(fr) wrote: Loved it! Great combination of actors, wonderful color, diverse scenery, cute plot. This movie really has character. It's bold, charming, quirky, and warm. The Director did a fantastic job. Some very quotable lines too... Deserves an R rating for some nudity that could have been abbreviated.

(au) wrote: Much better than expected. Great part by Bernie Mac. Actually really funny from beginning to end without getting tiring.
(nl) wrote: Despite a solid supporting cast (Campbell Scott was great) and nicely made production/costume design but I found it to be a overlong and tedious biopic that was frustrating and lacked any insight. Plus I thought that Jennifer Jason Leigh was annoying as "Mrs. Parker".

(ru) wrote: When a group of London prostitutes begin to be murdered one by one, the inspector on the case soon realises that the link to their deaths is more far reaching than could have been imagined.Here we have a movie that is loosely based on Eddie Campbell and Alan Moore's graphic novel of the same name which deals with one of the theories explaining the infamous Jack The Ripper murders in London in the 1800's. The plot moves along quite well and (though a bit pedestrian in places ) is quite an entertaining watch, even though the story has been changed from the source material making the movie more of a traditional whodunit. The cast of incredibly well known actors all play their roles well, even though Johnny Depp's accent does get a little bit odd in places. Both the direction and production are very handled, but the movie does tend to fall in to the trap of being a bit artificial looking and you can tell it is an American's idea of what Victorian London would look like. Even though a lot of the gore takes place off-screen, what you do see is incredibly well handled and would appear to be quite faithful to how some of the murders were actually committed. All in all this is a quite a good little horror / thriller even though the story does not present any surprises, but as with all movies that based on real life events, one does get the feeling that this version of the Jack The Ripper story has been overly glamorised.
