The use of natural light and prudent dialogues makes it visually mesmerizing. The naturalistic setting and openness about sex showcased in the movie authenticate Francis Lee as a professional director.

The tempting look after the Ammonite review roundup film showing the metaphor in the occupation of the main lead, it depicts how two personalities, just as empty as a fossil, find their love with each other. Beautifully scripted, and thrillingly evident to live, Ammonite is a romantic, erotic yet engrossing love story.
Saoirse Ronan and Kate Winslet with their enormous chemistry, trap the story in a beautiful web of love. The style of Francis Lee is poetic for the fiery yet slow love story. The trailer and film do not go well together as Lee somehow not understood the real characters but showcased them lovingly.
Kate Winslet, especially in her eye grasping performance avoids every single trap into which this character could have tumbled, refusing to overplay the reclusive aspects early in the film and finding so much to say through body language instead of dialogue throughout.

The film is trapped in a distanced style and not excavated properly in the execution. Though Francis Lee, avoid the melodrama and cliché love but captures the erotic intimacy between two women reminisced in England.
