Storyline

This is the story of the lovely Kate Swallow and the loves of her life. At the start she is with Alec Bolton, a noted author, who discourages her when she wants to write a novel. Later she is swept off her feet by Alecs publisher, Vanni Corso, and leaves Alec for Vanni. She writes another novel and Vanni tells her he doesn't think the book will sell. Both of their actions are an indication of their vanity and fear of losing her. Written by Richard Jones <rjo339@swbell.net>

A nice film, Carole Bouquet very good.
9 May 2004 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

A nice little film, British mostly, that I liked, even though it really contained no actors I was particularly familiar with, aside from Christopher Walken. He was quite good here, playing a relatively normal character (no psychopath or super-villain). Very impressive was Carole Bouquet, playing Kate, a frustrated writer married to Alec (Jonathan Pryce) who was already a well-respected writer. Alec was just about a case study in the way men can be such complete jerks and utterly drive away the women they (think they) love. So, Kate eventually leaves and takes up with (and eventually marries) Vanni (Walken). But she finds things are different with him, but not necessarily better. Strange are the ways of love. I don't suppose Bouquet has a lot of fans in the U.S. but if so, they should definitely catch this film. Anyone ready for something with no murders or explosions might want to check it out. Grade: B
