Eddie Israel is a moviemaker. He is beginning the shooting of "The mother of mirrors", starring Francis Burns and Sarah Jennings. "The mother of mirrors" is the story of the last night of a couple falling into decay. Eddie is very demanding with the actors, and the heavy atmosphere of the film acts upon the daily life of the protagonists. Written by
A number of good performances in this film. Harvey Keitel, as always, plays an unflattering character in a thoroughly professional manner, never succumbing to the temptation to overact. James Russo was way over the top, although that's not a criticism of him, that's the way the role is written. Madonna was quite good here, too, a lot of quiet, soulful eyes. I even liked Nancy Ferrara, who appears to be the director's wife, in a fairly substantial role. However, the movie overall bored me. A lot. Maybe I missed something, but this film did not hold my interest at all. Grade: F
