Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 12/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's Binoche who startles with a raw portrayal bristling with anger and a festering sense of injustice."
Box Office - 11/01/2006
"Ray Winstone is sharp as razor blades playing the investigative detective. Vera Farmiga...provides funny and lively off-color commentary..."
New York Times - 01/26/2007
"There are moments of lovely, painful intimacy between [the characters]..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 11/01/2006
"Binoche seems to blossom under Minghella's direction, and she's luminous in this role..."
Ultimate DVD - 07/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "A pensive, beautifully executed drama about the emotional barriers people put up as others struggle to break through."

Product Description:

BREAKING AND ENTERING may lack the quality and scope of Anthony Minghella's previous work such as THE ENGLISH PATIENT and COLD MOUNTAIN, but it's an interesting, character-driven drama. Jude Law (CLOSER) plays Will, a landscape architect who succeeds in business but finds his personal life is tougher to navigate. He has been with Liv (Robin Wright Penn, FORREST GUMP) for years, but it's difficult to connect with her due to her worry over her teenage daughter. When Will catches a teenage boy named Miro (Ravi Gafron) breaking into his office, he chases the thief home. He later meets the boy's mother, a Bosnian refugee played by Juliette Binoche (CHOCOLAT). His anger at Miro is quickly transformed into attraction to his mother, further complicating his relationship with Liv.

This is Law's third teaming with Minghella (after THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY and COLD MOUNTAIN), and their partnership rewards the audience with a typically good performance from the actor. Wright Penn and Binoche also display the talent people have come to expect, but it's the supporting cast that shines here. As Will's business partner, Sandy, Martin Freeman plays second fiddle to Law, but he possesses a similar charm as his character on THE OFFICE. As a persistent prostitute, Vera Farmiga (THE DEPARTED) is one of the movie's highlights, providing laughter in what is largely a very bleak film. Gavron is a capable young actor as Miro, but his performance is most astonishing for his skills at the sport of parkour, a kind of urban acrobatics on display throughout the film. If only these characters were half as adept at life and relationships as Gavron is at leaping from building to building....
