Bitter Moon


(out of 5)

Roman Polanski returns to the forum of international cinema with this unimpressive thriller. While travelling on a cruise ship, bored couple  and  meet miserable couple  and her wheelchair-bound husband . One night, Grant stays up late with Coyote and listens to his tale of marital strife, beginning from when he met Seigner, through their relationship during which he treated her terribly, then detailing her vicious revenge. The characters should be mind-bogglingly attractive, but Seigner’s performance in the lead is especially weak and none of the dialogue is very good.
