There seems to be a trend in movie involving inventing silly problems for the lead character recently. The public is probably supposed to relate to these troubles, but they are presented as pure rinky-dink talks. That makes you unable to connect with any character and consequently have a good time. That’s what “Chloe” offers us.
The plot is quite clear. Julianne Moore plays Catherine Stewart, a successful gynecologist, married to David Stewart (performed by Liam Neeson). They have a son and live in a beautiful house. In one word, they have an idyllic life, exactly the one we all dream about. However, the problems begin when we understand that David is about to flirt with anything of youngster age and wearing a skirt. Their son Michael is only occupied with his new girlfriend and shut Catherine out of his life. So now it seems like her life is not so idyllic, is it?
Here comes Amanda Seyfried playing Chloe, named after mythological bisexual captivating woman from ancient Greece. Catherine meets her accidentally and decides to hire her to prove her husband is a cheating cad. That’s all very interesting, but unlikely to happen in real life. I mean, I wish it could, so we were more involved to the story as a real thing and were worrying for David being a cheater and Catherine’s life coming apart. If you do believe in the reality of the plot, you’ll enjoy the movie. Sorry, I couldn’t.
To tell you the truth, the movie is a remake of the 2003 French “Nathalie” with Gerard Depardieu and Emmanuelle Beart. That was the most sophisticated erotic movie ever, so erotic that there was no one real erotic scene in it. The sensuality was just melted in the summer Paris nights, music and extremely forthright talks of two women. Compared to that, erotic in “Chloe” is too straightforward, intrusive and rude. In this regard, the movies are as different as the summer sensual Paris differs from the winter, cold and prickly Toronto. That’s probably because of the different point of views on this story – the point of a man, directing “Chloe”, and point of a woman, shooting “Nathalie”. The single scene shows us the contrast: the fully dressed 40-year-old Beart, walking down the Paris streets, is hundred times more sensual than fully naked 25-year-old Seyfried.
Even if you didn’t know it was a remake, you would find the better recent films of the same patterns – “Revolutionary Road” or “Closer”, crushing in an unfulfilled relationship. But “Chloe” is just another example of getting too little interesting work from so much talent involved.
