More than decent film!!!!
on 26 December 2008
What would you do if you and your partner, who you loved dearly were in some financial difficulty and in order to alleviate your difficult circumstances a stranger offered you one million for one night with you? What would you and your partner do? Would you immediately dismiss the proposal, regarding it as preposterous? Would you accept basing your argument on it being only a one-night stand and therefore meaningless? Would you do it for the much-needed money? Or would you refuse saying that money cannot buy love and that such an act would reduce you to the likes of a prostitute?
Confused? Well that is exactly the complex story this film weaves excellently. With a thought-provoking script that manages to challenge our every day perceptions of love and money and the depths we'd go to achieve them, along with some seriously moving moments guaranteed to shed a few tears from the female members of the audience and even managing to throw in a few comic moments this film is something special.
Add that to some superb acting from the small but talented cast and you're in for a treat. One can easily empathise with all three characters from the lonely billionaire (Robert Redfort), who believes he can buy love, to the loved-up couple (Woody Harrelson and Demi Moore) who believe that they are untouchable and that their actions won't effect their "perfect" relatonship.
Beautiful cinematography, memorable music and careful editing make this a very crafty movie.
I'd highly recommend this movie for anyone looking for a mature, deep movie (something hard to find now-a-days)
