Bad DVD transfer

"This DVD is made from a VHS transfer, so apart from the poor quality of picture, the sound is very bad. The subtitles are a bit helpful, but as the color is white, often they are invisible on white background. There are several times when the VHS tape, from which the transfer is made, is not smooth, so there are white horizontal lines running on the screen. These faults make this disappointing movie worse. I have no idea what the director/writer had in mind for this project, but the story doesn't work at all. It's about an ageing writer, lives in exile in Mexico, who finds again in a visiting young model, the love he had 30 years ago. "You annoy everyone with your balloons", says Marianne Denicourt. She is right. When the story fails, sometimes the art helps; but sadly it's Bernard-Henri Lévy instead of Luchino Visconti."
Embarrassingly bad (and bad-looking) late career Alain Delon
Evan M. Malin | 08/20/2008

"Another late career Alain Delon title to avoid! The transfer onto DVD is very poor, with uneven lighting, bizarre casting (Lauren Bacall as an American who speaks unaccented, finishing school French!), and a very scruffy, unattractive looking Alain Delon. There is a convoluted plot involving an aspiring model and her manager who come to a Mexican island, and she hooks up with Delon, and receives unlistened-to advice from Bacall. There is gratuitous nudity (mainly the two younger women in the film) including a strangely shot love scene between the model and Delon. Very talky, and ultimately forgettable. Oh yeah - did I mention Delon's character has a hot air balloon on his roof? Do you care? This would NOT be recommended for inclusion in an Alain Delon film festival!! Save your money!!"
