An art teacher and an English teacher come together and form a rivalry at their school to find if words or pictures are more important. Starring Clive Owen, Juliette Binoche, and Bruce Davison.
The premise of the this film is interesting; however, the story lacks interest. It has too many individual subplots that interweave together while the competition between the rivalries fluctuate through those stories. The characters are interesting, and the performances are great. It’s just that the script isn’t focused on one story. There are too many subplots that take the stage while the romance between the teachers is put on the back burner. It’s would be a brilliant film if we could concentrate on the rivalry and the love affair between the two teachers. This film is not worth a watch.
