Excellent Movie-Mr. Cazenove gave a great performance., 13 November 2003
Author: twyli from Manchester, Tennessee, USA

I recently (November 2003) saw the movie "Tears in the Rain" on television. It is a great romantic movie without a naked sex-activity scene. I'm glad the television network replayed this 1988 movie. I had previously seen Mr. Cazenove in "A Knight's Tale" and "Three Men and a Little Lady" and thought he had more acting ability than what was written. I'm glad I had the opportunity to see him in this movie. His facial and eye expressions do indeed portray a deeper acting ability. Also noted is his agility and fluid body movement as emphasized in the last scenes of the movie when he comes around the couch to embrace Sharon Stone's character when she breaks down. Mr. Cazenove's acting gave this movie credence. Ms Stone's acting gave an air of "fakeness" (of course I realize that this is one of her first movies and so no cruelty is meant.) The actors portraying Jessie, young Lord Richard, older Lord Richard and older Lady Emily gave good performances and did indeed lend to the believability of the story line.
