GENRE: Drama LOCATION: NYC VENUE: Art-house Film Festival in NJ WRITER/DIRECTOR: Victor Levin STARS: Glenn Close, Frank Langella, Lambert Wilson, Anton Yelchin (Star Trek), Bérénice Marlohe (Skyfall) PLOT: Am. writer falls for Fr. married woman with children
SCRIPT: poorly written. Character conversations are cliché'. MUSIC: distracting: does not match the events of the movie. COSTUME DESIGN: meant to mirror "Breakfast at Tiffany's" CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: happens fast; hard to digest any relationships develop at all. ACTING: our "STAR TREK" actor is not lead material. If there is acting going on, I did not see it, he simply reiterates words on a page at best. Our lead actress should stick to foreign films or playing BOND girls. If not for Glenn Close and Frank Langella's 5-7 minutes, all would be lost. The BEST scene occurs when the Lambert Wilson's character as the husband approaches the writer.
OPINION: Not a film for SMART audiences. Meant to drive an audience towards tenderness, it is sloppily edited bouncing from park benches in Central Park to deficient acting. This seems to have been someone's idea that actually got made into a movie and should have stayed in their head. The writer fails to allow the audience to think for themselves, overstating every sentiment within the film. This could have been achieved by "demonstrating" cultural differences. Even the sex scenes are undeveloped: lead actor unconvincingly getting his pants off.
Movie goers will be disappointed. It will not be of interest to any X, Y, or Z generations. It misses being anywhere close to mirroring "Breakfast at Tiffany's" if not for the costuming. The Trailer cherry picks the only few moments of the movie that have any depth. Don't bother with video on demand (VOD) when you can wait a month for it to come out on Netflix.
