NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL 2010--'ROBINSON IN RUINS'  Send This Review to a Friend

Chalk up “Robinson in Ruins,” shown at the 2010 New York Film Festival, as the most boring of those that I have seen at the annual event. Patrick Keller takes the camera on a trip through the South of England to explore various sites. While the cinematography is striking, the length of time he lingers on places can be excruciating.

There is a narration by the esteemed Vanessa Redgrave, and as one might expect, the actress speaks beautifully. But even on that score, the narration grows monotonous when coupled with the visuals that are in themselves so often tedious on this pretentious journey.

Next time I take my own trip through England.
