A very good movie

Even though it has been a while since Kevin Spacey has done anything really mind-blowing, I always had a weak spot for this actor and he was above all the reason why I ended up watching this obscure flick with a rather weird title. Indeed, in the 90's, Spacey was considered one of the best actors around and I definitely agree with this statement. This movie which must be one of the most obscure he... read more

A trade show organized in a little hotel in Wichita is the chance to put in one room three men representing three different perspectives on the concept of life. Larry - played by Kevin Spacey - is cynical, pragmatic, foul-mouthed, and seems to thinks only about the profit, both work and life can bring. Phil - played Danny DeVito - is a middle-aged man who thinks he already lived his life and now h... read more

“A trade show organized in a little hotel in Wichita is the chance to put in one room three men representing three different perspectives on the concept of life. Larry - played by Kevin Spacey - is cynical, pragmatic, foul-mouthed, and seems to thinks only about the profit, both work and life can bring. Phil - played Danny DeVito - is a middle-aged man who thinks he already lived his life and now he's alone, depressed and wondering whether to embark on a new road and a new life or kill himself. Bob - played by Peter Facinelli - is a young Baptist that lives according to religious teachings, apparently innocent and fragile.

With these assumptions, the director John Swanbeck weaves a work that retains its theatrical structure, in fact this film is adapted from a play by Roger Rueff,” read more

" Three men representing three different perspectives on the concept of life in one room. With non-stop dialogues the biggest issues about life are adressed without never trivialize or become melodramatic, making fiction seem as real as reality (...read more)"

A very good movie

“Even though it has been a while since Kevin Spacey has done anything really mind-blowing, I always had a weak spot for this actor and he was above all the reason why I ended up watching this obscure flick with a rather weird title. Indeed, in the 90's, Spacey was considered one of the best actors around and I definitely agree with this statement. This movie which must be one of the most obscure he has made was actually released the same year as ‘American Beauty’, arguably his finest work. Anyway, despite this rather lame title, I thought it was actually rather fascinating and Spacey gave, once again, an amazing performance. In my opinion, this movie is basically the proof that you can make a spellbinding feature about almost any subject. Indeed, it is basically a movie taking place sol” read more

" Note : In the 90's, Kevin Spacey was considered one of the best actors around. I definitely agree with this statement. This movie, despite his rather lame title, has a huge powerhouse perfomance by Spacey and is definitely worth a look. Better than : K-pax, Pay it forward (Both average flicks with Spacey)"
