Starring: Sienna Miller, Steve Buscemi
Plot: A political reporter is sent to interview a movie star that he knows little about. After feeling insulted, Katja leaves the interview only to cause the taxi Pierre is in to have an accident. She then takes him back to her loft to finish the interview.
This is the English remake of a Dutch film from 2003.
The whole time I kept thinking, why is this guy still hanging around after she's bandaged up his cuts?
It's a weird cat and mouse game of who can outsmart the other. The character of Pierre comes across as a creepy drunk, seesawing back and forth between concerned father type and leering old guy.
The whole film expect for the first five minutes is them in a room together, the only interruption being a cell phone that constantly rings. I have no idea if this was originally a stage play but that is the feeling you get from watching this.
What do I think I learned from this film?
When you're famous can you really live outside of the spotlight even for a few hours?
