Homme Amoureux, Un

About

Kurys makes her English language debut, with Coyote as a narcissistic American film star who goes to Rome to shoot an against-type art movie and embarks on a passionate affair with his Italian co-star (Scacchi), who has problems of her own - a dying mother (Cardinale) and a drunken father who, in the movie's best scene, is ordered off the set by an enraged Coyote. There are some very explicit sex scenes here, but the film isn't as interesting as it should be.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Greta Scacchi, Peter Coyote, Peter Riegert, John Berry Jr, Vincent Lindon, Claudia Cardinale
  • Director: Diane Kurys
  • Writer: Olivier Schatzky, Diane Kurys, Israel Horovitz

In a nutshell

In the end it's Riegert as Coyote's faithful, downtrodden assistant, and Curtis as his wife who steal the acting honours.
