A very good role for Lesley Ann Warren
2 May 2003 | by wolflandersSee all my reviews

Lesley Ann Warren is a very good actress, she appears in A NIGHT IN HEAVEN as a beautiful evergreen woman. If the movie itself is not unforgettable, the Warren's part is a thing you always remember. The love scene with actor Christopher Atkins is very well filmed and give the image of a soft erotism. Unfortunately, the movie was not imported in france (I have bought the cassette by amazon). Good surprise too is to hear canadian pop singer Bryan Adams in the score.
