First of all, it should be called Words VERSUS Pictures. 2 high school teachers challenge their students to an Art VS Literature war. Since I am both a poet and a painter, I really enjoyed it. The artwork done by the art teacher in the film is, when I saw the credits at the end, actually done by the actress who plays her, Juliette Binoche, a superstar in France.

I could not get past 5 minutes into this movie. Just struck me as boring. The main male actor was not very good. Do not agree with any of the comments below.

This is a fabulous 5-star movie! I love the plot, character development, dialogue and humour. It, surprisingly, kept my rapt attention from beginning to end! There are many unexpected twists and turns and the ending is so well played! It got me! Juliette's and Clive's acting are phenomenal and very authentically played. One scene, in particular, profoundly touched my heart strings.

Two grown ups with careers they are passionate about, baggage, and purpose, challenge each other and end up loving each other - Good movie!

This is one of the best movies I've watched. It is witty and intelligent and very well acted. Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche are believable in their portrayals.

Lots of great ideas in the movie, but the characters and relationships seem off, somehow. Little chemistry between the protagonists. Binoche does a great turn as an artist trying to find new ways of expression in the face of disability.

Simply a beautiful film that teaches one so much about the differences between "Words and Pictures". One of the best love stories I have ever seen as well. Five Stars to the director, the screenplay, cinematographer, and actors. A really great movie!

This is an excellent movie. My partner and I loved it. On top of that we recognized scenes of the Fraser river in Vancouver and St. George's College. The acting was superb. A good story and something that will give you a lot to think about. What is most important? Words or pictures?

I wanted to like this movie but I just couldn't.

First of all, the main characters had a hard time deciding what their accents were. Clive Owen was trying to be American but the English accent kept coming through. I couldn't figure out what Binoche's accent was and neither could she. Maybe she should have been casted as a French painter.

The creepy student who stalked and sexted another student could have been removed from the screenplay altogether.

But what bothered me most was how easily Binoche's character accepted Owen's character. It was all very unrealistic. There just seemed to be a haze around the whole movie -- unconvincing.

Your time would be better spent on seeing other flicks unless you like these two actors.
