Critic Reviews for Camille
It's meant to be cute and harmless, preying on romantics, but it registers more as complete absurdity, minus the soothing touch of a capable filmmaker.
The only people who might enjoy it are necrophiliacs--or masochists. Either way, they have issues.
Audience Reviews for Camille
Nonsensical in a bad way. There was nothing interesting about it.
James Franco plays Silas, a former inmate who has made a deal with his parole officer to be let out unless he marries his chatterbox niece, Camille. Silas agrees to but can not stand the women. Camille and Silas are of to Niagara Falls for their honeymoon. For Camille, its a dream come true. For Silas, its torture. The two are later harmed in an accident. Silas lives but Camille has stop breathing and is slowly decaying. However, she can still walk and talk. Its up to Silas to get her to Niagara Falls before she passes on. Its amazing what kind of films you can watch instantly on Netflix. This was one of them. It really was quite something. It was a good blend of romance, drama, and dark comedy. "Camille" is a dark romantic dramedy. James Franco is great like always. Even in films that aren't of the best quality (i.e. "Spider-Man 3", "The Green Hornet"), this man can still shine. He can also make a good southern accent in the film. He was great in the film. I think I would trust him to carry a corpse around the country. Sienna Miller of "G.I. Joe" fame plays Camille. I don't think anyone else could have played the character. She was very good. Miller and Franco are the only big names in the cast. I don't know anyone else. But the supporting was great and knew hot to react with a living corpse walking around. There really isn't much special effects. There was a weird dream sequence with a weird effect. It was cheesy but fit with the film. The writing was also great! "Camille" is a unique little indie flick. I wish it got more attention from the public. If you love ghost films or dark romances like "Corpse Bride", seek out "Camille". It is really something. Its a great dark romance. ♫"Faith" was more than just a word.♫
A watched Camille a while back, and the only thing that is really sticking out is that the film is incredibly trippy. The humor and charm, while good, really is forgettable. Still, the actual story and style is so delightfully twisted and wacked-out that you cannot really help but like it, at least to some degree.
