Critic Reviews for The Madwoman of Chaillot
Fascinating star-studded mess, but a mess all the same.
A tremendously talky effort featuring a ton of stars. One of two films I tried to sit through, but couldn't.
Audience Reviews for The Madwoman of Chaillot
If you need to clean out a sewer you need to get your hands dirty.
Countess Aurelia is rich and has a loyal following. She resides in Paris and is disturbed by the corrupt and evil behavior that plagues her people. She stands up against evil in her own way using her power, money, and influence. Will she be able to bring down the corrupt and evil men that plague her country or will she be seen as senile by her own people?
"Say it before the song ends."
Bryan Forbes, director of Better Late than Never, King Rat, The Wrong Box, The Naked Face, The Stepford Wives (1975), The L-Shaped Room, and Séance on a Wet Afternoon, delivers The Manwoman of Chaillot. The storyline for this picture is very interesting and has some worthwhile characters and interactions. The acting is awesome and the cast includes Katherine Hepburn, Yul Brynner, Donald Pleasence, John Gavin, Edith Evans, and Paul Henreid.
"When you let someone go you never see them again."
I came across this on cable and had to DVR it since it starred Katherine Hepburn (I'm a fan of hers). This was a great character for Hepburn to play (especially at her age in this movie, she delivered this character perfectly). Overall, this isn't a classic masterpiece, but it is worth seeing once.
"I can assure you God is not a woman."
