"I saw this movie for Christopher Walken. But it's not his movie. It's Carole Bouquet's movie. She plays the main character, and it with her character that we identify and empathize with.I saw this labelled as a comedy, but it's not. Its a very real human drama... sometimes lighthearted, sometimes not so light... but always a real drama. And I cared what happened to the characters. In the end, the characters didn't all act the way I wanted them to. But it's not my movie. And I realize that it ends the way it should. It's a movie about a woman who is stuck in a man's world. Who faces, and loves, men who want to keep her in her parents' era. But she wants a life of her own... and in the end it's a movie about her liberation.If you are looking for another good creepy Christopher Walken movie, then you may be looking in the wrong place. Because this is a very good movie, but it's not a psycho-thriller. It a human story."
AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER...

"This is a marvelous movie with wonderful performances by Christopher Walken, Jonathan Pryce, and the exquisitely beautiful Carole Bouquet. It is the story of a woman (Carole Bouquet), who is married to an egotistical, self absorbed Englishman (Jonathan Pryce), who is a well known writer and highly acclaimed literary figure. Christopher Walken plays the part of an Italian American publisher who is looking to sign up some English authors for the American market. He wines and dines Pryce, who ends up signing with him. Meanwhile, Pryce is suffering from writer's block, while his long suffering wife is typing out her own manuscript. Pryce speaks to his wife contemptuosly about her effort. She gives her finished manuscript to Walken, who likes it and agrees to publish her book. This angers Pryce, who actually tells Walken not to publish it, so enraged is he by his wife actually having a thought that does not evolve around him. Walken meets with the wife and sees her as the beautiful, warm, intelligent, and articulate woman that she is. Delighted to be treated like a normal person, rather than an appendage of her husband, Walken and Bouquet begin an affair that culminates in divorce from Pryce and marriage to Walken. She finds out that once married, however, Walken basically expects her world to revolve around him. In essence, Pryce and Walken are basically one and the same. She ultimately leaves Walken, writes another book, and becomes a best selling author in her own right and a woman of independent means. She comes into her own as a person, and is no longer another's doormat. This is the story of her liberation as a woman."
TERRIFIC CHRISTOPHER WALKEN VIDEO

"I bought this to see Christopher Walken in it. He did not play the main character, but as a supporting actor, he was witty, handsome and delicious! I saw this on a Pay TV channel a few years back. It is late night because of the mature subject, and nudity (yes, she is gorgeous!) If you are a Christopher Walken fan, this is a must see. This is one of the few movies he is in, in which he shows that he can be more than a "bad guy" actor. I wish he would do more comedies. If you are a Walken fan, I highly recommend trying to get "Puss In Boots." He plays the cat in that movie. He is young and adorable. He also can sing and dance!"
Carole Bouquet is still one of the most beautiful actress ever born. Her face is a real Symphony; and her alluring fits perfectly with this role: she is a gorgeous model happily married with a talented but neglected novelist, he is possessively neurotic and needs her as a child needs her mother, but by these destiny's trickeries she has the chance to meet the editor of the firm in which his husband is hired, an entrepreneur, ambitious who is immediately attracted to her. She will be the driving force in this formidable comedy that will make us to reflect about a question without answer: Does the ideal man exist for such woman? .
Some lines are particularly incisive and acidic in this clever plot, a brilliant film measure by measure. "

"The story line of this movie has been described by other reviewers, so I'll just say that it is one of my favorites. The acting is first-rate: English actor Jonathan Pryce always turns in a creditable performance, and Carole Bouquet, as the main character, more than carries her share of the plot. Christopher Walken is not to be missed; he plays the comedic nature of his character to the hilt. What is amazing is the way director Charlotte Bronestrom manages to balance perfectly comedy and tragedy, to play off the serious message underlying the plot with the absurdity of human behavior. She doesn't miss a beat and gives us a film that is funny and sad, frivolous and serious at the same time--much like life itself."
