Plein Soleil (Purple Noon) 1960

1 post in this topic

Plein Soleil (1960)  This film snuck up on me.  For about the first 30 minutes or so I didn't particularly like the script.  The relationship between the two leads, Alain Delon and Maurice Ronet seemed kinda weird.  After viewing the whole film the first part fit.  This took me by surprise.  Tom Ripley ( Alain Delon ) is sent to Italy by the father of playboy Phillip Greenleaf ( Maurice Ronet) with instructions to bring him back to the United States.  You guys know the rest.  Excellent performances by all the lead characters and a script that took off and surprised you.  I haven't seen the remake with Matt Damon but I feel that this was a project that Leonardo Capricio should've done if anybody.  I rank this one a 9 out of 10...
