Elegy is provocative, truthful and an insightful piece of work that is grossly enjoyable but somehow end up being not-cooked-enough.
With stunningly beautiful Penelope Cruz showing off her impeccably crafted body, Elegy is mainly a male fantasy driven adult entertainment where the protagonist (Kingsley as David) offers his painfully honest sexist views, quite unabashedly. I liked Director Isabel's less dramatized approach which creates the very likeable soft tone, helping the not-so-appealing story push through without getting stuck. It however banks heavily on an outstanding Cruz and of course Kingsley's fierce performance, without which it would have been reduced to a pure lame.
If not anything else, watch it only for Penelope Cruz who gives one of her best performance -- a rare mix of being beautiful, bold and very intelligent.
