Besieged Movie Review

Subscribe Thandie Newton
Bernardo Bertolucci gives us another long-winded look into the lives of people you'll never see in real-life with Besieged, a fable about a fainting pianist (Thewlis) who falls madly in love with his exiled African housekeeper (Newton). Sure.... So, will our housekeeper abandon her jailed husband in favor of our tragic hero? Perhaps, if he can prove his devotion.

Obviously, as a fable, little in Besieged comes off as even remotely believable, which would be fine if it weren't so boring and plodding in its pacing. Widely panned during its release, Besieged deserves acclaim only for its pleasant piano music.
