Twice Upon a Time
27 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, a low user rating and no comments on this film so far. I recently saw this at the 2007 Palm Springs International Film Festival and of the 31 films I saw there this makes my top 5. This is a fun light comedy with a great cast. Alice d'Abanville (Charlotte Rampling) is a popular veteran British film and stage star who's talents are still very much in demand. Her former husband is Louis Ruinard (Jean Rochefort) a fading French cult film director who is being honored with a lifetime achievement award. In the 1970's this was the international hot jet set couple whose romance, marriage and breakup dominated the tabloids. Alice is trying to be coaxed into presenting Lous with the award but she wants nothing to do with him and they haven't seen each other in 30 years. A chain of events gives this couple an unlikely possibility of rekindling their rocky romance. Rampling has had a long career as an actress starring in such films as Georgy Girl, Stardust Memories, The Verdict and Farewell My Lovely. Rochefort has had a long career as a character actor in mainly French comedies but has had leading roles of note also such as in the Academy Award nominated Best Foreign Film Ridicule. Rampling and Rochefort really have a nice on-screen chemistry in this film and are really believable in being each other's love of their life in this story. Veteran stage and film actor Ian Richardson is Lord Evelyn Gaylord, the long-time husband of the remarried Alice d'Abanville. Simon Kunz is Randall the butler. Isabelle Nanty is Rageaud, the assistant to Ruinard and James Thiérrée is Alcie and Lord Gaylord's son. This is the third feature film from director Antoine de Caunes who has made a successful leap from comedy actor to director. He also wrote this fun and witty story. Some brief scenes of nudity. This is an entertaining comedy for adults that will appeal to an over 50 in age audience. I would give this a 9.0 and recommend it.
