Even though she is past her glory days, I still have a weak spot for Michelle Pfeiffer and I always check her movies when I have the chance. Here, she works again with Stephen Frears more than 20 years after 'Dangerous Liaisons. Even though both movies are costum dramas, back then, she was playing an innocent young woman but this time, she portrays an experienced courtisane. I must say, there were... read more
View all Chéri reviews
Description: It is turn of the century in Belle Epoque Paris and a scandalous romp is underfoot. The sensational tale begins as the ravishing Lea (Michelle Pfeiffer) contemplates retirement from her renowned stature as Paris’s most envied seductress to the rich and famous. Her plans are cut short when she is approached by a former courtesan and arch rival, the barb-throwing gossip Charlotte Peloux (Kathy Bates), who encourages Lea to teach her disaffected 19 year-old son — a bon vivant nicknamed “Chéri” (Rupert Friend) — a thing or two about women. The resulting escapades involve power struggles over sex, money, age and society ... (more)

“Even though she is past her glory days, I still have a weak spot for Michelle Pfeiffer and I always check her movies when I have the chance. Here, she works again with Stephen Frears more than 20 years after 'Dangerous Liaisons. Even though both movies are costum dramas, back then, she was playing an innocent young woman but this time, she portrays an experienced courtisane. I must say, there were many things I enjoyed about this flick. The whole thing (costums, sets,...) looked gorgeous, the directing was well done, the acting was very good and the dialogs were very nice and witty. However, I can't say I was blown aways by the story. I mean, it wasn't really boring but it wasn't far from it, I'm afraid. The characters were rather interesting but I didn't care much about their ordeal. Stil” read more
