In his novel "Money" (1984) Martin Amis uses a great deal of his experience as the screenwriter for this film as the basis of the book. The director, John Self, is based on the film's original director John Barry, and Lorne Guyland (Long Island in Newyorkese) is meant as a caricature of Kirk Douglas, the aging star still trying to prove how sexy he was. Caduta bears some resemblance to Sophia Loren, who, fortunately for her, was not a member of the film cast. See more »

Outstanding set design and a good premise let down by dull direction and sloppy editing.
The talent working on this film should have meant the end product was a lot more coherent than it actually was.John Barry who was involved with a story credit but was production designer for Star Wars and Superman must have had a big hand in the set design for this film as it looks incredible.The sets are so good they are a character in themselves and lend effectively to creating a sense of isolation.The sets remind me of Alien,yes they are that good which would be testament to the brilliance of Barry.Its a shame then that the rest of the film is rarther poor.It shows glimpses of promise but seems to falter just as its picking up.An expressionless Harvey Kietel seems dubbed and gave a physically hollow performance alongside an energetic Kirk Douglas and an airhead Farrah Fawcett.The visual effects are actually OK but the film seems to be missing big chunks and i get the feeling there's a version out there on the cutting room floor that is actually a lot better than what we have here.This film could probably be remade quite successfully,it has a great premise and is lacking a quality director to see it through. 6/10
