Someone To Watch Over Me


(out of 5)

Above-average thriller that benefits from great chemistry between its stars and the visual ingenuity of director Ridley Scott.   plays a rich society dame who accidentally witnesses a murder; the police assign a detective () to protect her and make sure she stays alive until the killer can be caught. Berenger falls in love with her and is tempted to destroy his home life with his wife () and children for the woman, but is their attraction actually personal or do class divisions have more to do with it? The added level of social drama is also a plus, though in the end it’s still just a thriller with some terrific photography and a tidy ending.
