This is my 1,994th movie review
Thanks to David for recommending this film to me!
Number of Times Seen – 2 (Cable in the 90’s and 10 Feb 2016)
Brief Synopsis – A successful architect reflects on his life while trying to decide whether to stay with his wife or his mistress.
My Take on it – This movie is one that I saw once years ago and didn’t recall anything about it, so when David suggested it, I decided to try it again.
This movies definitely raises some very interesting ideas about mid-life crises, love, relationships and what is important in life.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to break new ground anywhere and just retreads over ideas already explored in other movies with similar themes.
The trio of actors featured here all do a nice job with their parts, but similar to the movie’s themes, they don’t really bring anything new to these stereotypical roles.
All in all, this is an average movie presented in a very average fashion.
Bottom Line – Raises some interesting ideas, but ultimately doesn’t give us anything new. The trio of actors all do a nice job, but again nothing special here.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Sharon Stone rang director Mark Rydell repeatedly, begging for a part in the film. Rydell automatically assumed that she was after the part of the mistress, and was quite surprised when Stone revealed that she wanted to play the frigid wife. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
