When internet journalist Jeff Wells expressed certain reservations about Cold Mountain to the director, Minghella asked if he would like to sit and talk about it. They did, and, according to Wells, "I was amazed and delighted by this, and pretty much fell in love with him at the moment." It was a sentiment apparently shared by many. Minghella had a lot of work ahead of him, after the transitional Breaking and Entering. It felt as though he had to make it, had to unclog himself, had to play out his fixations somehow. His next film, undoubtedly, would have been no small thing.
