The End of the Affair
Neil Jordan directs this adaptation of the Graham Greene novel telling
the unraveling of a passionate love affair in London during WWII.
A novelist (Ralph Fiennes) hires a PI to discover why his mistress (Julianne Moore),
the wife of a friend (Stephen Rea), broke off their liason which started during the Blitz.
Ian Hart and Jason Isaacs also star.
Capsule Review: It's sluggish and dry romance, but at least one with
appealing leads. However, the film's strong theological component is not
well integrated with the rest of the plot. When it appears strongly in the
third act, it is seemingly out of the blue. Still, a good performance by Moore
pushes this one into the slightly recommended category.
