We gave it a C+

The latest from Anthony Minghella (Cold Mountain) finds Jude Law playing an architect whose strained ties to his girlfriend (Robin Wright Penn) are further tested by his attraction to a seamstress (Juliette Binoche). Yep, Breaking and Entering is about the design of both buildings and relationships! It’s also painfully dull. EXTRAS A making-of doc and director’s commentary add little to the experience. While discussing the deleted scenes, Minghella even mentions the ”irony” of their inclusion on the DVD given that he had final cut on the project.
