A bad film with good heart and meaning
19 December 2016 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

Only one can imagine, what it would be like, living with such a rare asthmatic condition, where you're confined to a glass walled room. Hey, John Travolta, did in a bubble, many years earlier. This time in a rather dull, and very cheesy late 80's effort, poor young Chris (Curreri from t.v. series fame) a brilliant songwriter, is the victim, and it's a sad and grim thing to behold. For me, this movie clearly posed the question, "Is life worth living the rest of it behind a glass wall, or for a few short days, out there in the open, before the guy upstairs takes you". Crystal Heart is far from a good film, though it's is a different and interesting watch, but really just falls to below average movie fare. Hottie Kitean, is the rock singer who's fallen for Curreri and his music, and it's a fatal, short lived love. As Chris, Curreri is just average, though likable, where Kitean, a good but under appreciated 80's actress whose career fell, after a few movie roles (she actually ended up on Celebrity Rehab) adds much more spark. It was Dynasty's Bochner's performance though, I really liked, as Chris's very supportive Dad, while Heatherly was solid as the Mother. Too, I liked Saura, an Emma Thompson looking woman, as Chris's carer. Her line after Chris breaks out of the glass, and vacates, is the one that stays with me. A brilliant acting moment on her part. A sincerity that's scary. Yes, some of you will be drawing tears in the short lived finale, such little precious time, shared between our lovebirds. There have been, many more effectively tragic endings, than this, but this is a cute little drama/time passer, but just isn't a good film. The whole film kind of has the air of a much shot video, with some nice bikini clad babes. One shot involving doggie do do in the gutter has never been a more favored shot. Jean Claude as Kitean's much older lover and agent is a hoot, where I just can't say the same for the slightly dreary, under par film. Kitean's finale song and scene, I really liked though.
