A sensationalized retelling of the Rimbaud-Verlaine story. The great French poet Arthur Rimbaud wrote all his poems, which continue to amaze and inspire to this day, during a brief burst of activity in the early 1870s, when he was just a teenager (imdb)

Ok, I'll admit it. The sex scenes effectively killed the film for me. There. Call me a homophobe, if you wish.

"Despite its fascinating subject matter, Total Eclipse is both unflattering and loveless." - Ed Gonzalez

Kudos to Dicaprio for taking this risky role so early in his career & for steely line readings of some ruthless lines but the execution of the dysfunctional love affair between Rimbaud & Verlaine is painfully inept & often unintentionally comic. I can't help thinking how much better The Broken Tower is, not least because it respects the poetry first.
