Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Clare Peploe's The Triumph of Love is the movie equivalent of a good summer dress: Shimmery and breezy, it lets just enough air and sunlight through.
Rotten: It could have been something special, but two things drag it down to mediocrity -- director Clare Peploe's misunderstanding of Marivaux's rhythms, and Mira Sorvino's limitations as a classical actress.
Rotten: The characters in Triumph of Love are trifles, so that the farcical situation, which depends on the audience buying quick changes of heart -- like falling in love in an instant -- has no resonance.
Fresh: A classy, sprightly spin on film.
strange, but not too bad.
i decided to buy it on a whim- l get a kick out of most cheesy romances. but this was very strange. all three people standing behind her on the cover end up falling in love with her -she's orininally dressed as a boy, so she reveals her true sex to both of the men and acts like a boy otherwise. no one knows that everyone else is in love with the same person. hard to watch sometimes. the filming and costumes are beautiful though, and it's really funny.
This movie was the strangest and worst I've ever seen! I would never suggest it to anyone. I also bought this on a whim thinking 'ok this will be interesting and different.' It was definetly different and not the least bit interesting.
Funny, Romantic and Different
You have to see this movie to apreciate it, the language that Mira is spouting out, its amazing, that is my favorite part, not the story line at all. Its enjoyable, but I bought it at a video store closing for 5 bucks.
