Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Berri also remains a boringly uninteresting director, dotting every i and crossing every t with nothing much on his mind but platitude.
Berri is unable to overcome the inherent feebleness of the Manon character, here played ineffectually by the lovely and talented Emmanuelle Beart.
There is a satisfying symmetry to events, with Manon able to take her revenge on the Soubeyrans.
The acting, from that of the four major stars to the numerous supporting cast members, is without flaw.
| Original Score: 4/4
The movie is stuffed with cues for arias that are never heard.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
All of this takes place with the implacable pace of a Greek tragedy.
Though appealing in its wispy way, Manon is only a continental soap opera.
Auteil's Ugolin is so well drawn, it's a shame to see the role lost.
