  • Lots of Rhonda Fleming Bling But A Movie Bomb

    This movie had the feel of a cheesy, low budget film but clearly money was spent to create this Brazilian fantasy. It felt Brazilian in that it was extremely superficial and low on dialogue. Woman meets handsome foreign man, marries, fights, reconnects. No depth. Fleming seemed not to experience total culture shock, or as the Brazilians refer to as 'saudades' for her native country. She, as well as her character, one-dimensionally performs from one scene to the next hopefully receiving a large paycheck at the end. Brazzi is good as Flemings' peripheral love interest > the only honest performance in this film by portraying the apathetic, self absorbed South American husband. He had a truth to his performance. His character was lovely & continental on the eyes, which wore thin rather quickly. Absolute reality. Other than Brazzi's performance there is no true reality in this film. Yes the movie ever so gently exposes the Brazilian double standards that exists in marriages but Fleming & Brazzi live happily ever after I guess; until he finds another mistress. Like a true Brazilian wife, Fleming will learn to keep the mistress close, otherwise completely loose her husband or unlike Brazilian wives' options, return to America. So again this film was a complete farce based on my experience living in the country. But then again I'm certainly not Rhonda Fleming.

    One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I think Rhonda and Rozzano did it for the money.

    It's clear as you go along, that this is not a top movie, but its' draw for me is Ms. Fleming out of a typecast she seemed to be stuck with in earlier days. Hated the gooey makeup, finding it made her actually less attractive. Likely that is part of the script, as she played an actress. Her husband was of a simpler taste in such things, and that was part of the adjustments needed between them. Brazzi played a more conservative, less romantic type. He did the reserve well. There is a quality about this film that attracts and holds interest. The cinematography is very pleasing, with locations unique to my film experience anyway. As for casting, the leads do surprisingly well together. The friend and her husband are attractive. The American "boyfriend" was a disappointment, being unbelievable as any kind of attraction for Ms. Flemings' character. Being a regular throughout the film, that was for me a detractor. Regardless, I personally don't think this qualifies as a bad movie. It is good viewing in general, has a competent and fuller Rhonda Fleming performance, along with the unique and successful pairing with Brazzi. I am glad it has surfaced, and believe it will garner support with subsequent airing.

    -This is what love really is!!! These two lovers WERE in love instantly...they both needed the time to let love grow. Sit back and let the simpler times roll--the way life SHOULD be!--Marty Anders.

    Third-rate romantic comedy, but Rhonda Fleming, William Redfield and Rossano Brazzi certainly made it thoroughly watchable.
