Breaking and Entering
Breaking and Entering: 7 out of 10.
Anthony Minghella took Jude Law from the excellent The Talented Mr. Ripley and Juliette Binoche from the exceptional The English Patient and made this surprisingly fine film. I write "surprisingly" because I had never heard of Breaking and Entering. It somehow flew so far beneath the radar I completely missed it.
It's a sharp looking movie with a cool score and a several pro-Mac statements. There are times when it feels like an ad for Apple. The acting is excellent and Mingella's screenplay is good, although confusing. I'm still not entirely sure where we ended up and what was resolved, but the message is clear. When you score a hot Swede, don't throw her out with the bath water.
