Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

With its unapologetic, unlikable lead character and it's depiction of ultra-wealthy lifestyles, this is a film that will by no means be for everyone. But for all its flaws, The Grand Duke of Corsica is a unique and contemporary piece of cinematic storytelling. The film's unusual tone may push many audience members away. But the ace up its sleeve -- and what could well keep them in their seat and invested in the narrative -- is the brilliant Spall.

Spall is wonderful as the narcissistic architect Rott. He carries the film, although he is helped along hugely by Stormare as the eccentric Duke, whose unique blend of darkness and whimsicality matches the film's atmosphere perfectly. So while this may not quite be a film suited for everyone's tastes, it's nice to see something a little bit different, at the very least.
