Hiawatha B (nl) wrote: An unexpectedly good drama about family, marriage and murder. Directed by the underrated Bill Duke.
David F (ca) wrote: A fantastic thriller about a anonymity-seeking crime novelist from Britain who seeks an end to her writer's' block in her publisher's villa in France, only to find herself holed up with his French daughter whose promiscuity, drug use, and sarcasm at first frustrate the writer, then provide inspiration for her. This film has a great atmosphere which is erotic, philosophical, and shot through with a kind of teenage angst coming from both the young daughter and the much older writer who appears to be involved in some way with her publisher. It's full of striking imagery and vivid characterization, providing a new twist on what you might expect to find in a European villa.
Chris K (nl) wrote: Powerfully depressing movie about a man's life beginning to fall apart after his wife's suicide. Very poignant, very awkward. I think people (or at least I) can connect very strongly with PSH's acting, because he plays such a normal dude reacting to emotional situations. I recommend this for the emotion and the acting, but maybe not if you really can't do depressing movies, because this one is up there.

Sharon A (ru) wrote: A good film, and full of great songs and music. Team this up with Bette Midler in a great role, where she gets to belt them out with that great voice of hers, and this was great.

Carlos M (gb) wrote: Despite one of the plotlines being a lot less engaging than the other, especially with an unnecessary love affair thrown in for no reason and Laurent's poorly developed character, this is still an interesting film about a man's spiritual journey through sorrow, guilt and closure.
Markus M (es) wrote: The acting is off, the plot makes no sense, and the portrayal of the one black person in the film is one of the more over-the-top racist things I've seen in a film in a while. But the whole hair metal thing the film has going on is awesome, and despite the film not being good it's still really fun to watch. Heck, I'll probably wind up watching it again. Hilariously dumb is the best way to describe this film.5,8/10
