Trivia

Kristin Scott Thomas has since been disdainful of the film. In an interview in 2005, she said that "When I left drama school...I was more afraid of not working at all than of the actual material I was being offered. And if you look at my very first film, you'll understand exactly what I mean." See more »

A thought-provoking artistic endeavor
2 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. It is on my list of most thought-provoking movies. From my experience, I believe that a lot of people just don't think to watch it, for whatever reason they have. It has Prince in it... or it's in black and white... or it has Prince in it... or it just isn't 'main stream' enough... or it has Prince in it. Whatever the reason it is most often a case of judging it before they saw it. If they ever saw it at all.

I am a big fan of Prince. I have been since I was a teenager. I suppose that is why I first watched it. But after seeing it and seeing through it to the point behind the movie, I was hooked. I was a fan. There is emotion and a poignant point behind each scene.

If you watch it and see it deeper than the average person simply looking for a way to waste an hour an a half you'll find a movie that actually makes you feel for the characters as if they were your friends... or you may at least wish they were.

And that kiss... Well, if you watched the movie... you know the one. It is, in my opinion, one of the best movie kisses I've ever seen.
