Bon Voyage

Bon_voyage Director Jean-Paul Rappeneau (“The Horseman On The Roof”) over-glamorizes the start of World War II in Nazi occupied France in this farcical melodrama staring French cinema stalwarts Isabelle Adjani and Gerard Depardieu. Adjani plays Viviane, a popular film actress attempting to avoid suspicion for a murder with the help of her lover Frederic, (Gregori Derangere) a young writer. The couple finds intrigue in Bordeaux, where the French government has relocated, amongst a mixed group of politicians, spies, journalists, and socialites. Although visually appealing, the movie is too cavalier and shallow for its more weighty subject matter. 
Rated PG-13. 114 mins. (C+) (Two Stars)
