Synopsis / Plot
Cultural critic & university teacher David Kepesh (Ben Kingsley) finds his life -- which he indicates is a state of "emancipated manhood" -- thrown into tragic disarray by Consuela Castillo (Penélope Cruz), a well-mannered and gorgeous student who awakens a sense of sexual possessiveness in her teacher.

Critics' reviews
  • "There’s very little pleasure to be found amid this film’s penumbral lighting, careful compositions and muffled, muffling good taste. There isn’t much juice here either, though the film is based on 'The Dying Animal', a brutal, short novel by Philip Roth (...) is a polite take on an insistently impolite novel"
