Too leisurely paced
18 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

"Partners In Crime" is ostensibly based on an Agatha Christie short story, but I'm going to venture a guess and say it has little to do with it, since - as far as I know - Christie never explored science fiction territory, which is the genre the story told here really belongs to. But I've never really had a problem with Christie adaptations that are far removed from the original text; I do have a problem with Christie adaptations that lack any sort of urgency, which "Partners In Crime" is guilty of. This film is more of a seriocomic study of mid-life crisis and thirst for excitement with a sci-fi angle than a "traditional" Christie mystery; the humor is subtle - often too subtle - and the pacing is extremely leisurely. However, Catherine Frot (who remains VERY attractive in her mid-50s) and André Dussollier do have an affectionate and believable chemistry as a couple, and the locations are pleasing to the eye. ** out of 4.
