The film starts out with a funeral, most likely on Good Friday, setting the tone that this film is not going to an action film, but something quite mournful. The happy go lucky Sarah comes to see her beloved fiancé Giuseppe, but is forced "To Wait" for his arrival and during the wait ("L'attesa") she gets to discuss Giuseppe's relationship to mother and fiancée. A very sad film that is somewhat obscure to the American audience if they know little about the meanings of the pre-Easter "ghost" procession (not KKK) and the fact that this procession would be the last for the dying Pope John-Paul.

This is of some interest due to the director's willingness to go over the top with quiet, meaningful cinematography with no obligation to convey meaning or denouement. The casting is great.

The acting and production are five stars. Plot is one star.
One hundred minutes of waiting for pointless lies to be cleared up.

I love Juliette Binoche. She certainly does wonderful work portraying a devastated woman in this film. Ms. Binoche does more with her face than many actors can accomplish with pages of lines. The film, however, telegraphs the "secret" in the first scenes and then goes on to pretend that the viewer is confused about the truth. There seems to be little logic in Ms. Binoche's cruelty unless, in extreme pain, she hopes that if one person believes a lie, it might make it true. The cinematography is often as dark as the emotions. If you are as much of a fan of Juliette Binoche as I am, you may want to see this film to watch her exquisite acting. I cannot, however, recommend the film. Kristi & Abby Tabby
