    From Adrian Lyne, the director of `9 And A Half Weeks` and `Fatal Attraction`, comes this powerful, provocative and profoundly moving adaptation of a twentieth century literary masterpiece.

    When schoolteacher Humbert Humbert marries his landlady, Charlotte Haze, it`s purely to get close to her daughter Lolita, who reminds him of the childhood sweetheart he lost in tragic circumstances.

    But Humbert`s forbidden love becomes an obsession that threatens to engulf them both and change their live irrevocably. With a sumptuous score from Ennio Morricone (`The Mission`) and a stunning centre performance from Dominique Swain (`Face/Off`), this classic loss of innocence has never before been so faithfully brought to the screen with every beguiling, disturbing and haunting moment intact.

    Most insults last only a few seconds, but this one lasts 132mins. This is what happens when a director of the talent level of Adrian Lyne (huh!) does a literary work that has already been done by the great Kubrick.

    I think I`ve sais enough, i`d rather not think about it.

    A pathetic remake of Stanely Kubrick`s original version. I don`t understand why many Hollywood execs have to think of remaking an excellent classic just to gain popularity once more. It`s hurts rather than helps the original. Avoid at all costs and buy Kubrick`s version, it`s a trillion times better than this piece of crap.
