Although Branagh and Emma Thompson are both technically fine in dual roles (a little struggle with accents), it does become clear why neither one became a conventional star or Larry-and-Viv redux. Branagh doesn’t have the looks, charm, or strength of a romantic lead (this is especially apparent when he’s playing the Teutonic conductor). I love Thompson and her timing is flawless as usual, but Grace Kelly, she’s not.
Check it out, I don’t think you’ll be sorry........

So..........I have very fond memories of this film. I prefer Branagh as the German conductor rather than the American PI. More scenery to chew there!! Thompson is lovely in both of her roles. Although the ending is rather wacky it definately is cool. And remember that scene where an aged Andy Garcia blows cigarette smoke out of the hole in his neck? Yuck!!!
If you haven't seen the film I do recommend it.

All too vividly. I imagine that was one bit of product placement Marlboro didn’t pony up for.
