Spoiler: it takes a whole 46 minutes before any inkling of conflict is introduced into this tedious tale. That's over half the film. Apart from its general pointlessness, the film is ok. In particular, the cinematography looks amazing. However, the music is heavy handed and Harvey Keitel is made to look like a fool by the poor script. Andie MacDowell does ok, though it's not made clear why she has a beer in her hand in every scene of the film's first half, and then it's never mentioned again.
