Storyline

A Repeated Pleasure
18 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fourth Story is a film that bears repeated viewings with ease.

The actors are perfectly cast and have an easy chemistry with each other (and not just Mark Harmon and Mimi Rogers - all the actors are perfectly cast from the biggest to the smallest part!) while the script is a model of clarity and fun that most writers would do well to emulate.

The music score is a joy and works like gangbusters.

It makes you wonder why most directors think of Jazz as a fad when it can be made to work so well in so many settings.

Overall it is a very worthy film that I can only hope will have a DVD release very soon.
