Storyline

This is the story of the lovely Kate Swallow and the loves of her life. At the start she is with Alec Bolton, a noted author, who discourages her when she wants to write a novel. Later she is swept off her feet by Alecs publisher, Vanni Corso, and leaves Alec for Vanni. She writes another novel and Vanni tells her he doesn't think the book will sell. Both of their actions are an indication of their vanity and fear of losing her. Written by Richard Jones <rjo339@swbell.net>

Kind of nice.
24 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

Most people never heard of this movie, although it has two brilliant actors. Once I heard Christopher Walken saying that he makes movies that nobody watches, and sometimes he makes some movies not even him watches. But I tell you what, "A Business Affair" is not bad.

It's not great either but hey ... On the day I saw this movie, I saw 4 others (old flicks), and this one was the best, and it was better than any of the three I had seen the day before.

The good performances by charismatic actors help, as well as beautiful french actress Carole Bouquet (it shows her naked a couple of times). And some funny lines too (Walken says at a point of the movie: 'My father used to sell pizzas in Harlem so now I can sell art in Europe').

I wouldn't say it's a must see, but I should confess it's better than at least 60% of the things I watch.
