Blake P (fr) wrote: "Avenue Montaigne" is one of those films that manages to warm your heart and make your day, even if it isn't grande cinema. For me, there's always that once in a while where you get a film that's entertaining and funny, and "Avenue Montaigne" is just that. It has the vibrancy of a Technicolor Godard movie from the '60s, along with a sweet sense of humor that sets an artistic but frothy tone (which isn't a bad thing at all). The stories, all intertwining, are enjoyable and simple. It's like a Robert Altman ensemble comedy minus the irony or complicated dialogue-- and it's a lot breezier. You could say "Avenue Montaigne" is as lovely as the city it takes place in: Paris. The film revolves around Jessica (Cecil de France), an optimistic young woman who moves to Paris from the small town of Mcon, hoping to get a fresh start. While the first few days are hard for her (she doesn't manage to find a place to live or a job), she eventually gets a job at a stylish caf. Because her new job is in the heart of an artistic community, through her job she meets a handful of people that are going through big changes in their lives. There's Jean-Franois (Albert Dupontel), a celebrated concert pianist who wants nothing more than to quit big, classical music concerts; there's aging actress Catherine (Valrie Lemercier), who's stuck doing a soap opera and a limiting play when she wants to be a film actress; and then there's Jacques (Claude Brasseur), an art collector that's dying while also trying to reconnect with his son (Christopher Thompson). By the end, everything is resolved, and it makes us feel happy that everything works out. The cast of "Avenue Montaigne" seems to be having a good time-- whether or not their character is shallow or nice, everyone gives it their all with a lot of pay off. If we didn't have a cast as dedicated and charismatic as this one, would the film be the same? I don't think so. But it's a delight to watch everyone bustling around, just figuring out life; and while this could be boring, none of the stories every sag. In films with multiple stories like this one, there always should be one that isn't as good as the other ... but that isn't the case here. All of them are equally entertaining and fun, and it's great how something so good-natured and sweet can be predictable without being cloying. Much of it is enjoyable; I loved seeing the goofy, slight bonkers but old Claudie (Dani) lip-synch to old French songs while reliving her past, and when Catherine defies her play director and changes the play she's starring in into the way she wants to-- on opening night. But there are also quite a few poetic moments, as when Jessica stands with melancholy in the rain, looking into the atmosphere, or when Jean-Franois plays the piano for a group of sickly hospital patients. "Avenue Montaigne" hits the combination of dramatic and funny perfectly, to the point where it's sincere and quite touching. The key to the film though, is France. Though there are certainly a few standouts here, especially Lemercier, France carries the movie. I've always really liked her-- her pixie hair, crooked smile and curious eyes make her an intriguing beauty, and she maintains to be lovable in nearly all her films. This one shows her at her best. Her spirited and likable characterization of Jessica serves not only as a connector to all of the stories involved, but as the most winning part of the film. "Avenue Montaigne" may be fluffy, but it's good fluff. It's never sappy; it moves along with energy and slight wit that amuse us more than it should.

Keith C (ag) wrote: Without a doubt, Diana Ross was given a gem of a part in this film about legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday. Ross gives a strong performance in her first film "Lady Sings the Blues" while never trying to imitate Holiday's vocal style. She gives a hint of the style but makes it her own in this film. The movie itself is very bio pic "formula" but I love seeing the early years to rise to get somewhere then the fall then the challenge to climb back to eventually make it or not. Sadly we already know the end before we even start this film. Great performances by Ross, Pryor and Billy Dee Williams. It was a bit long for me, all of the songs were drawn out but I do enjoy the CD of the music from this film. Kudos to Diana for this great film and fine performance. Although this film lost Oscars to "Cabaret" in '72 and Diana lost to Liza, she really deserves high praise for her work in this film. If you like Ross, Billie Holiday and good music, you will enjoy this film.

The Baron is creepy as hell...at least when hes still a decomposing wreck. But ultimatly he looses that creepy presence when he "regenerates" Baron Blood is a modern day horror film with alot of gothic atmosphere, great sets and a creepy villian.

Allan C (br) wrote: Not as classic of a WWII POW film as "Stalag 17," "The Great Escape" or "The Bridge on the River Kwai" but a smart film that's well worth watching. Though the story does suffer from rampant POW film cliches, the film, written by director Bryan Forbes and James Clavell, based upon his novel, has some terrific character dynamics involving George Segal as a lowly corporal who becomes the de facto leader go the prisoners at a Japanese prison camp. While the rest of the camp suffers from sickness and starvation, Corporal King thrives through conniving and black market activities. There's a strong cast that includes Tom Courtenay, James Fox, Denholm Elliott, John Mills, Joe Turkel and Richard Dawson, along with a fine score by John Barry. It's interesting to note that this film did not do well when it first came out, likely due to the often unsavory and unheroic behavior by allied prisoners, but that's what makes this film interesting and stand out from other POW films. Even William Holden's similarly opportunistic POW in "Stalag 17" redeems himself with heroism in the end, as opposed to the Corporal King who, SPOILER, who at the end of the film when their camp is liberated when the war ends, provides the most interesting part of the film, where he gains his freedom from the Japanese camp, but is again reduced to being a lowly corporal and is suddenly subservient to all of the officers and higher ranking soldiers who that had previously cowed to him. The film felt like it was it was made to simply build to this one moment, but it's a doozy that's worth the trip.

Trent M (it) wrote: Pretty good, while never quite what one would call "rousing", spy thriller. Once it gets going, it hardly lets up for diversions of character, except for a short sequence with Sophia Loren that should seem out of place in a film like this, but isn't all that much. I liked it anyway. But just imagine how this all would have played out if Peppard had the rest of the A-Team with him...
