Heating up the Screen, M'sieu Sean Bean
So, OK, I'm heading to Paris in 3 weeks and if there's an advertisement for that city, it's this movie. Can't wait to ride that 'tacky' Bateau down the Seine, but won't have a hunk like Bean with me. So, having had a few affairs myself in the 3 marriages I'm a veteran of, I loved this morality tale. Cause they're exactly right: that moment of ezxctasy (OK, those moments) aren't worth the horror of the after-affects. The pain that's caused to all, except maybe the focal point is just too much. As usual, I have to point out the illogicalities: so Rose is hurting Sean by exposing him (and his cute little naked butt) to the class....she doesn't think that someone will inform his wife? Huh? And the suspense when she goes to his house with the photos, wow, haven't felt that nervous in a long time. But in all these adulteries, you wonder, "What were they thinking of?"
Trying to put myself back then, I remember the boredom of marriage, and the excitement of stealing a married man, but it seems all so tawdry now. And again, not worth the outcomes at all. If you get him, here's the point: You SHOULD have to marry him for that night when he comes home with perfume all over saying, "Babe, the chickens done come home to roost."!!!
