Product Description

Amazon.ca

Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient) made her film debut swapping spit with Prince in this vanity piece directed by the rock legend himself. Prince plays a self-styled gigolo and musician in the south of France, and unlike his interesting grimness in Purple Rain, his character's affect is like one big, walking smirk here. Shot in black and white, the film is handsome enough to look upon for awhile. But even for people who admire Prince for his prodigious musical talents, the Song of Myself stuff in the movie is overwhelming. --Tom Keogh

So "Under the Cherry Moon" is a sinfully self-indulgent movie built around a self-indulgent, narcissistic but supremely talented and charismatic star. That being said, it's a thoroughly enjoyable movie, particularly for loyal Prince fans like myself.
The cinematography of this movie is more beautiful with each viewing. It's also very funny (most times, where it's supposed to be). Prince and Jerome Benton have very good comic timing at certain spots, and some great lines emerge (who didn't laugh when Tricky said he'd "slap the waves" out Chris' head?).
Prince and Kristin Scott-Thomas do have decent chemistry. Scott-Thomas does her best with a limited role, and she demonstrates the appeal that led to better roles down the line. The movie only lags when it tries to get too serious, but it has always been an overall delight.
Last, but certainly not least, the score and the soundtrack are incredible. The soundtrack, "Parade," is a groundbreaking (albeit underappreciated) LP of avant-garde funk, and provides the thematic backbone for the movie.
This movie should be even more enjoyable in widescreen format on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars prince? the king i should say May 24 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Many, many, people judge my favorite musician EVER! They hate because he has the guts to prance around in high-heels while other men would piss their pants to do such a feat! They hate on his height, in my opinion, would say is very cute (haters!). They hate on him for performing new things but complained when the claimed "he was old, and his music was all the same. People are never satisfied.
Well to the movie...very well done! It's very different from any movie ever, and deserves so praise for it. This man slaves hard to put out an album almost 99% ever year! He stays busy, and when he decides to do something others would fear, people critisize him. He may not be the best, but in my eyes (which have very good eyesight, by the way) he comes close. The movie is a classic now and forever. Back in the day they hated it, and people still might hate it, but why? Because he shows off his talent? Because he isn't afraid to do what he gotta do? Because he is talented and people are jealous? I think so! The movie is great from beginning to end. In my opinion this character is better than the Kid, because I personally think that he deserves more lines. He got them and I love it! Purple Rain is a classic, but shouldn't that just be left alone? He wasn't trying to be the Kid in this movie, so don't critisize him for not being him! Very few people have music, acting, and looks down pat. We gotta give credit to the man who introduced the Minneapolis Sound.
I own the Soundtrack as well and I LOVE IT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Prince, Prince, Glorious Prince!! May 20 2004
By Nick R
Format:VHS Tape
Dear Reader,
What it is, y'understand, is that 'Under The Cherry Moon' is an absolute delight of a film. It's not just a film, it's a sensation. You taste, feel, smell the ocean, mood, finerie and sheer splendour of the South of France. I watched this film many times on it's release at the cinema when it came out and loved it then. Admittedly, there are some luxuriously narcissistic shots in the film, but they work!! What guts! And we love him and the movie for it! I just watched it again now, and realise that this film is certainly going to get some real appreciation now in retrospect. Seasoned, experienced film makers (I am a serious film aficianado) would find it hard to create the life enhancing, sumptuous mood and feeling that Prince has managed to create in this film (he also directed it...and to think within a year or so, we also had the astounding 'Sign O'the Times Double Album). It is an amazing feat for something I'm sure Prince did as a hobby. Revisiting the film reminded me why I was and still am A DIE-HARD PRINCE FAN FOR LIFE. It reminds me why he was what he was. In the interim he can release as much badly reviewed music as he wants. Nothing changes. It will still not affect his standing as one of the, if not THE MUSICAL GENIUS of the 20th century. I am annoyed at one reviewer moaning about his height, they need to understand this man is a GIANT. A colossus in his field.
Back to the film, the acting, the mood, the effortless perfection and timely usage of the Parade soundtrack will blow you away. Every single performance is magnetic. Watching 'Under The Cherry Moon' filled me with joy. Truly. Please Warner Bros, we want the DVD, with as many extra as possible please (a double disc set?).
Prince, you're THE KING MAN!

UNLESS YOU ARE A TRUE DIE-HARD PRINCE FAN, YOU PROBLABLY ARE GOING TO FEEL THIS MOVIE IS SILLY..THOUGH THERE BE SOME COMEDIC MOMENTS.THE MOVIE IN ITS ENTIRETY IS A CHEESY ONE AT BEST. THE SUPPORTING CAST MEMBERS ARE THE HIGHLIGHT IN THE MOVIE, PRINCE, HOWEVER, IS NOT A CONVINCING, NOR ALLURING FIRST MAN. SPEAKING FROM A FEMALE PERSPECTIVE, PRINCE LACKS THE TYPICAL ANIMAL,HE-MAN MAGNETICISM THAT MOST WOMEN SEE THEMSELVES ROMANTICALLY ENTANGLED WITH. I MEAN, HOW MANY WOMAN FANCY A 5'2 INCH, ONE HUNDRED POUND LEADING MAN? WHO, MIGHT I ADD, IS PRETTIER THAN THE LEADING LADY IN THIS FILM. THOUGH BETTER THAN GRAFFITI BRIDGE, WHICH LEFT ME IN A STATE OF TRAGIC DISAPPOINTMENT..UNDER THE CHERRY MOON, IS HARDLY THE MOVIE OF THE CENTURY. TO THINK SOME HAVE LIKENED THIS MOVIE TO ROMEO AND JULIET, LEAVES ME TO WONDER IF I SHOULD JUST TAKE UP READING AGAIN, AND NEVER MIND MOVIES EVER..ESPECIALLY THOSE WITH A PRINCE AFFLITIATION. IF YOU ARE A PRINCE FAN, YOU TOO WILL, IF HONEST, FIND THIS MOVIE FALLING SHORT(EXCUSE THE PUN)IE. REFERENCE TO PRINCE'S HEIGHT..DO NOT BUY THIS MOVIE AT NEW PRICE. IF YOU ARE HAVING TWO FITS TO SEE IT, RENT IT AT THE VIDEO STORE AND SAVE YOUR TEN BUCKS. EVEN SO, YOU WILL FEEL THAT THE RENTAL STORE HAS WRONGED YOU BEYOND FORGIVENESS. I COULD SPEND ALL DAY LONG LISTING THE INADEQUECIES OF THIS MOVIE, BUT I WILL SAVE YOU SOME TIME BY JUST LISTING THE MOST BLATANT SHORTCOMINGS..1) PRINCE'S DEATH SCENE..WHAT WAS HE THINKING, YOU CAN TELL HE NEVER DIED BEFORE. BUT THIS OVER-ACTED SCENE WILL LEAVE YOU WISHING YOU COULD'VE DONE THE HONORS..YOURSELF..2)PRINCE IN HIGH HEELS, HEY WE KNOW YOU ARE SHORT, BUT DO YOU HAVE TO LOOK EFFEMINATE TOO? 3)PRINCE AND TOO TIGHT PANTS..STOP THAT! STOP THAT NOW! AND REMEMBER YOU ARE GETTING TOO OLD TO WEAR SUCH SILLY REVEALING CLOTHING.. Read more ›
