One man show.
28 October 2002 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

The only reason to watch this is Jeff Goldblum's presence.He gives a subdued but very effective performance,with spooky looks .He was ideally cast as the devil and he beats all his contenders be they Robert De Niro(Angel Heart),Jules Berry (les visiteurs du soir)or Michel Simon (la beauté du diable).Unfortunately ,neither the plot nor the rest of the cast follow suit .

The supporting cast is very heterogeneous,mixing great British actors (Alan Bates) with a whole lot of sometimes renowned French ones (such as Daniel Gélin or Jean-Pierre Cassel).They all seem ill-at -ease,particularly Roland Giraud,miscast as a shrink.The scene when he tries to jump from the top of the roof is a shameless "the Omen" rip-off.The young lad,once an angel and now a fiend ,we saw him (or her) in countless works from "the exorcist" to "the omen" .

And nevertheless, Goldblum's performance fascinates the viewer and manages to transcend the paucity of the screenplay and the listlessness of the directing.Worth a watch,only for him.
