Chain-smoking, guzzling booze and spouting worldly epigrams about love and life, Moreau fits into Croydon like a peacock in Antarctica, sashaying around and imposing her seductive will on everyone.
Joan Plowright and Jeanne Moreau turn this slight BBC production into a jolly lesson about how two great old theatrical broads can liven up an arty domestic drama.
Apart from offering a juicy star turn to Moreau, the movie has a lot of mordantly funny things to say about the conventionality of suburban English life, and all the actors shine.
Acting together in top form, Ms. Moreau and Ms. Plowright are something to see.
The movie is unable to decide whether it wants to be a lighthearted comedy/drama, or something darker and more serious.
Jeanne Moreau has been a treasure of the movies for 35 years, often playing roles something like this one.
Although this odd comedy-mystery is never entirely successful, the eternally glamorous, fearlessly ridiculous Moreau takes full advantage of her role to demonstrate that she remains one of the great stars of international cinema.
The central comic performances by Moreau, Plowright, and Walters keep things lively, especially during the increasingly farcical second half of the film.
Jeanne Moreau. Jeanne Moreau. Jeanne Moreau. She is the soul of this movie and its raison d'être.
Full of quotable one-liners, spirited performances and good intentions.
Stars Jeanne Moreau as a Zorba-the-Greek-like soul whose zest for life changes all those who come into contact with her.
Moreau, with her acid tongue and her flaming hair, devours this droll British comedy as if it were chaparral and she a raging California brush fire.
One of the most eccentric movies I have ever seen. It had the most bizarre ending.
