Flawless Kritik

Published by at 13:31 under Misc. Luxembourg

Eng weider Flawless Kritik vun http://www.theglobeandmail.com:

In Flawless (2007), a disgruntled diamond company executive (Demi Moore) in 1960s London is enticed by a night janitor at the company (Michael Caine) to help him steal diamonds, but gradually the heist film turns into a mystery.

Both actors sensibly underplay their performances and praise each other in the making-of segment, though neither mentions their previous pairing: she as his daughter and he as a middle-aged man having sex with her young friend in the terrible Blame It on Rio. Director Michael (Il Postino) Radford shot the film in Luxembourg, an arrangement the production designer says made life difficult, since “1960s London does not exist in Luxembourg.”

    Flawless

    Poor Demi Moore. Of all the weeks to release a period movie about a beautiful woman in great hats who fights an unjust patriarchal system, she has to pick the one where Changeling storms into view and makes her 1960-set London heist movie, Flawless, look even more fatuous and soulless.

    Moore is Laura Quinn, a ravishing American Oxford graduate of genius-level intelligence who dresses like Kim Novak in Vertigo and works for a De Beers-type company called the London Diamond Corporation. When passed over for promotion one too many times Quinn joins cockney janitor Howard Hobbs (Michael Caine) in the diamond heist of the century before becoming a super-successful businesswoman, a philanthropist and ultimately a modern Mother Teresa (don’t ask, really).

    In all this Moore still boasts the best voice in the business (an alluring mix of sandpaper on granite, with a dash of honey), but as an actor she is here frequently upstaged by the magnificent foyer of French architect Alain Bourbonnais’ Grand Theatre in Luxembourg (ignominiously doubling for the London Diamond Corporation’s HQ).
