Words and Pictures: Which Is The Winner?
Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen are believable as high school teachers, who are battling afflictions and each other. She teaches art. He's an English lit teacher. Both think their subject trumps the other.
But strangely, not so much.
The most fascinating aspect of this movie is watching Binoche, who is an artist in real life, (who knew?) create her dazzling paintings. From there it's downhill.
What about music? The Movie Slut wondered throughout this romance, in which the worthy opponents discover that their love for each other reaches beyond words and pictures.
