Critic Reviews for Shadows in the Sun
The filmmakers go to great lengths to create a sense of authenticity, to a fault. We are left to assume a lot about who is what and where they fit in
Excels in its moody portrayals and intrigue, although confusion with plot points occasionally distracts
You won't find a much bigger Keitel fan than me, but not even the actor's patented brand of wide-eyed lunacy can save this one.
If you've got a tired story, hide it under some gorgeous scenery by setting the film in an exotic locale
Audience Reviews for Shadows in the Sun
Entertaining and easy to watch. I enjoyed Harvey Keitel and the Italian scenery a lot. Joshua Jackson seemed a poor choice for the lead role - very one dimensional and no attempt at a British accent. The love story was given too little time and attention, would have been better to skip that and put more effort into the relationship between Keitel and Jackson. Story is predictable, but nice. Worth the time.
At the start, the movie Shadow Dancer opened with a young guy played by Joshua Jackson getting ready to go to work in busy London. Then the movie progressed to Italy and when Claire Forlani popped up with her sexy eyes in the movie, it became more interesting. I liked her acting from Meet Joe Black. Harvey Keitel played a burned out famous writer who did not want to see any publishers. Joshua Jackson task was to visit Keitel and see if he could make him write again and signed up a contract with him. There was lots of comedy and great scenes in Tuscany Italy, and all the actors were outstanding. The romance was charming, however, they could have put just a little more romance to it. I missed that.
Now this is a double 'eh'. I don't even know why I rented this one. I knew it wasn't going to be any good anyway. Well let's see your typical love story... boy meets girl, boy sleeps with girl, girl rejects him, boy almost leaves, girl wants him back again. Frankly, the girl (Linda Forlani was the actress who I started to dislike ever since Joe Black) was a slut. She slept with him just so she could see what it was like? Pfft! Slut! Next!
