I first watched this movie several years ago. At the time, my impression was that the first half-hour or so was almost hypnotically absorbing, and that Kylie Minogue really knew how to shake it, but the rest of the movie was a lot slower. After watching it again tonight, I'd say that, though my initial impression was correct, the rest of the movie is much better than I gave it credit for the first time around. Let's face it, though, the Bohemians were the dirty hippies of the fin de siecle period, and the movie would have benefited from a final scene that saw them all mowed down with a Maxim gun.
