The Big Blue Review


Good
No wonder audiences didn't connect with this film, an early Luc Besson-Jean Reno collaboration that explores the mysterious world of deep deep diving. Oddly, The Big Blue is somehow a love story as well, with Rosanna Arquette and Jean-Marc Barr making goo-goo eyes between his deep dives and swims with the dolphins. The Reno-Barr rivalry (who can dive deeper) consitutes the bulk of the film, as well as its most dramatic moments, but the strange dolphin symbolism, blue-tinted photography, and self-important chest-beating will likely leave most viewers out to sea.

Camille Claudel Review


Excellent
I hadn't the foggiest idea who the title character was before popping in this DVD. In fact, I had Camille Claudel mixed up with Claudette Colbert. No matter, it's a quick jump into Claudel's backstory -- she was a French sculptress who tutored under Rodin, eventually surpassed his talents (from some accounts), became his mistress, was scorned, and went totally insane in the aftermath. Isabelle Adjani owns the movie as the title character, and Gérard Depardieu is excellent as the lecherous and slightly unhinged Rodin. Excellent direction and engaging storytelling, even if it does start to lose your interest in its third hour... No matter: You'll never look at the Louvre the same way again.

Triumph Of Love Review


Bad
The moral of love: Be manipulative and conniving to get the man (or woman) you want, even if a few other folks get their hopes crushed along the way. That's what's certain after watching Clare Peploe's depressing fairytale/restoration comedy Triumph of Love (based on a superficial Marivaux play originally performed in 1732). That's not the filmmaker's intention, though. She's clearly going for whimsy, light romance, and slapstick cuckolding. What her film lacks is a heart and a conscience.

Mira Sorvino plays a princess who dresses up as a dandified male student to infiltrate the summertime estate of a misogynistic philosopher (Ben Kingsley). Under the old man's tutelage, a dashing prince (Jay Rodan) has been instructed to distrust the female sex. So clever Sorvino attires herself as a man to earn his friendship, trust, and above all, love.
