Au plus près du paradis 2002
Description: Folks and life can be cruel, and in their face, Fannette is cool: toward an old acquaintance, to her daughter, to colleagues. Beneath the surface, she roils with passion for a lost love, Philippe. She watches "An Affair to Remember" again and again, and when she receives a letter from Philippe asking her to meet him atop the Empire State Building, she swoons. She's writing a ebook on an aged painter, so she organizes a trip to Fresh York ostensibly to safe photographs of some of his pieces. The publisher assigns her a photographer, Matt, on the surface spontaneous and flip, but also aggressive about his attraction to her. Will she be with the one she loves? Will she smile? Written by

Au plus près du paradis Reviews:

This will suit only some tastes: a dreamy, loosely plotted movie about a (presumably divorced) Parisienne (Deneuve) grown very romantic in middle age - idealizing a boy she spurned forty years before.This viewer believes that the boy has not gotten in touch with her again -that her longing imagination (spurred by repeated viewing of An Affair To Remember) has so taken over that she only fantasizes that he has left her (threw on the ground to a pursuing Deneuve an envelope containing) a note to meet him at the top of the Empire State Building on a particular day and time. The film invites another viewers to instead trust that the boy is simply cryptic and elusive, and has made such an appointment.Fortunately for Deneuve's longing, she gotta go to Fresh York for work (she is writing a ebook about a painter and gotta have three paintings currently in Fresh York photographed for the book). While there, the photographer (Hurt testing a very goofy character) falls for her.So, will she step into reality by taking up with Harm who offers her love - or proceed further into the fantasy globe by making her appointment at the Empire State Building? And if the latter, what will ensue? There are many inconsistencies in Deneuve's hero - e.g., she has no sentiment about anything in her past - has just moved from her old home, has no desire to hold close relations with her daughter (and cleaned out her room), seldom attends reunions of the class where she knew the idealized Philippe - yet she aches with each couple she sees kiss and imagines Philippe everywhere.Only reason to see this is for Deneuve -I'd never seen her enjoy a hero who can be rattled, silly, spontaneous - and she's wonderful. Hurt's hero is however an idiot whom no girl would fall for - allow alone both Paulina Porizkova (playing an art owner's wife involved with Harm before her marriage) and Catherine Deneuve.Finally, a warning to men: do not test Hurt's transport with Deneuve at home. You will be injured.


This movie has grown on me with every repeat viewing. Deneuve is in each scene, so it supports if you are a fan, but then how can you not be? The movie demonstrates on one lvl the connection that folks can have with the cinema. How it turns a visual photo into a feeling, and how also we can live vicariously through it. The director Tonie Marshall wanted Deneuve for this film, and if she had told no, the movie would not have been made, it was Deneuve or nobody. This was because Marshal felt, as I have come to over the years, that Deneuve belongs to cinema. She is a legend. When you search a connection it could be kept, whether it is through an actor/actress, hero particular movie etc. Deneuve on screen represents movie and everything about it, how she conveys feelings etc. The movie sees Fannette test to search Phillipe, the love of her life from 30 years ago. She is recreating her own stage from An Affair to Remember, where they meet at the top of the Empire State Building. The movie is sad at the same time as hopeful. The repeat viewings let you to see the various layers of the movie that are not apparently obvious at the 1st viewing. It can be seen as a romcom sort of movie if you wish. But it is so much more. I hope you play it, I am.


I just LOVED this movie. Pity I saw it on my (tiny!) TV. I want I should have seen it in a true theater, on a large screen. Paris, Fresh York and Deneuve are gorgeous, dialogs and melody are fantastic, and the light is beautiful. OK, the storyline is a tiny bit patchy, but who cares? You just watch this film like you read a John Irving novel: you don't care if it's not a masterpiece, you just play it! My largest trouble with this film was the fact that they decided to dub the second half of the film. Even if Deneuve is dubbing herself quite well, it looks and sounds strange... Maybe Hurt's French wasn't nice enough? For the rest, I found that all these "satellites" that evolve around Deneuve are just great: her doctor/lover who comes to check on her heart, her lesbian daughter who seems more mature than her own mother, her colleague who keeps crying because her lover left her (but who can't support noticing Fanette's pretty shoes), her alcoholic brother whom she doesn't judge. And all these bits and pieces from Leo McCarey's 'An Affair to Remember'... The beauty of the movie comes from this nice paradox: it's a star who plays this 'weak' and lonely girl who is herself fascinated by film stars. A pretty show to a pretty actress.
