Review of Nearest to Heaven   

An average movie

It is a rather obscure flick (only 3 ratings here in Listal) but since it was starring both Catherine Deneuve and William Hurt, I thought I should give a try anyway. Honestly, the story is nothing really amazing but Catherine Deneuve was so charismatic (I mean, can you believe she was 60 years old back then?!?), she was just spellbinding to watch. I also have a weak spot for William Hurt and, together, they had some great chemistry. Unfortunately, even though the characters were interesting, I didn't care much about the plot though. By the way, this movie was directed by Tonie Marshall who had some success before with 'Vénus beauté (institut)', you might not have heard of it before but it was quite popular in France and featured the breakthrough performance of someone called Audrey Tautou. It is something rather typical in French romantic movies : the characters are usually interesting, complicated, conflicated, they talk all the time but the plot is usually not reallu important. To conclude, it is nothing really amazing but it remains a decent romantic feature and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in French movies.
