A perverse, dark-humored comedy drama, Bitter Moon crosses the line into intentional camp more often than not in its tale of a kinky cripple Oscar (Peter Coyote) and his beautiful wife Mimi (Emmanuelle Seigner). Oscar ensnares a proper British man, Nigel (Hugh Grant) on an ocean-liner and makes him listen to the twisted tale of his relationship with Mimi (related in lengthy flashbacks) and how erotic obsession turned to homicidal hatred. Nigel is married to Fiona (Kristin Scott-Thomas), but is captivated by Mimi and listens to Oscar's grotesque stories because of his fascination. Naturally, the whole thing ends in tragedy, but it's wicked fun getting there, as director Roman Polanski paces the film quite well and the cast (particularly Coyote) is wonderful. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide

Journey to Hell by tungwaiyip October 6, 2006 - 7:24 PM PDT
How can 'Bitter Moon' be called a comedy? I don't find the story funny at all. Indeed it maybe one of the darkest film noir. The story is a romance turned sour. Passion wanes. Disagreement grows. Relationship got lower and lower everyday until it became just debasing.

Emmanuelle Seigner plays the sensual beauty. But she can also look intimidating, especially when she uses heavy makeup.
