I'm not a theatrical luvvie and I won't waste many words on this review, it's just not worth it. Total garbage, absolute rubbish, a complete waste of two hours. I'm just surprised that someone of the calibre of Michael Caine would want to get involved in this type of film. I've just done a preview of what I want to put into the review and it appears I have to write at least ten lines of text, which is going to be difficult because a few hours after watching this film most of what occurred has simply been eradicated from my memory. All I can remember about it is a series of disjointed, seemingly unconnected scenes with nothing at all to link them. I first thought with a powerful cast list that it was bound to be an enjoyable film which just proves how wrong anyone can be. As I stated, most of this film has already gone into my memory dustbin, the only things I can remember about it is some of the visual scenes that are quite well done. anyway I hope I've waffled on enough to fill ten lines of text and I wish you all the best.

* The parade of weird characters in the Alpine luxury resort where the entire film is set - from an obese football player with a tattoo of Karl Marx on his back to a masseuse with braces who declares she likes touching more than talking, and imitates dancing cartoon characters in her spare time.
* The way Jane Fonda's character is introduced - initially filmed from the back, then showing her smile in the reflection of a mirror, and finally facing the camera, radiating maximum diva charisma.
* The abundance of funny dialogue. Here's just one example: - 'Im great in bed'. - 'I know' - 'How do you know?' - 'Because you're my daughter'.
* The lush cinematography, making the film a feast for the eyes.
* The fact that this film is funny, dramatic and melancholic at the same time, and also surprising, entertaining, beautiful, philosophical and versatile.
* Michael Caine, at 82, playing one of the best parts of his career.
* The completely over-the-top video clip by Paloma Faith, which is integrated in the film as a dream sequence.
* The end of the dramatic conversation between Jane Fonda and Harvey Keitel, with both faces filmed sideways in close-up, on both sides of the screen, and finally Fonda's hand on Keitel's cheek.
* The overall sense of watching an extraordinary film.
This film is about the emotional problems of very, very talented; very, very rich people. It features fake desire, fake spirituality, fake grief, fake love, fake friendship. The script is in English - that is to say, the words spoken are English words, but they seem to have been generated from Italian via free automatic translation. It managed to be both totally incredible and totally predictable. It might be the worst film I've ever seen. It is definitely the most pretentious. The photography is quite pretty.
More lines of text are required... so I'll just say that Michael Caine does not make a convincing conductor, and that some of the musicians involved seemed appropriately embarrassed.
