This movie is cute, in a very 'adult' way. Utilizing all the corny British terms like 'saucy', 'raunchy', 'cheeky', 'bawdy' and the like. A great cast of Bob Hoskins, Robbie Coltrane, Michael Caine, and Cathy Tyson, who really steals the show IMHO. George is a simple working class man, released from prison after 7 years and wanting to re-establish himself with his 15 year old daughter, and some decent work. But George can't get out of his 'old ways', and goes back to the dodgy blokes he had gone to prison for. He gets the cushy job of driving a high class call girl named Simone around posh places in London at night. Humorous, as George would've been better suited to drive a cab for commoners instead. His disheveled look and chatty attitude throws Simone at first, but she soon warms to him, as he really is a decent chap with some rough edges. But then she, and his past crime partners get George into collecting information. Tabs on Simone, and Simone desperately searching for a young colleague she had walked the streets with long ago. And George innocently wanders into London's sex trade, and the mysterious men and women who keep it throbbing. Instead of corrupting him, it makes him more caring and concerned for Simone, his daughter, and what he's doing with his life now. It's a very sad ending, that keeps you hanging. Yet, it's also a very happy ending that keeps you hoping. Much like the renowned painting, the posture shows discomfort - yet there is a slight smile evident. My criticisms would be that the dialog is very British, in all forms of classes. Making it a bit hard to follow (for me) at times. And there isn't much background on anyone, so one's not sure how 'simple' George is, or how 'powerful' his boss (Caine) and others are. As the movie goes along, the viewer does see the levels.Read more ›

Firstly I would say that if you have in your library John Mackenzie's THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY, also available in the Criterion collection, and Neil Jordan's MONA LISA, you already have a good specimen of what the British cinema was able to offer in the eighties. A fabulous actor, Bob Hoskins, is present in both movies; he won the best actor prize at the 1986 Cannes Festival for MONA LISA.
Neil Jordan began his career as a writer and is, in my opinion, one of the most interesting film directors nowadays. It's always challenging for the common viewer to watch a movie directed by a former writer. One often wonders why the director has left his books for the cinema. Some of these ex-writers use the camera as if they were handling a pen and the result is dreadful. Or too intellectual. Fortunately, with MONA LISA, Neil Jordan has created a stunning visual world and George and Simone's night wanderings through the London underworld an unforgettable cinematographic journey.
MONA LISA develops a lot of themes that will touch you in a way or in another. The different levels of the movie are so well mingled in the story that you will be able to watch MONA LISA several times and still discover little pearls hidden by the brilliant director. At the end of the movie, I just wanted to check the sound quality of the commentary track recorded in 1996 by Neil Jordan and Bob Hoskins and I found myself trapped into MONA LISA for an immediate second screening.
Apart from the commentary, this Criterion DVD offers the theatrical trailer and a one page written Neil Jordan commentary.

This review is for the Criterion Collection DVD edition of the film.
In this movie, Bob Hoskins plays the role of George, a man recently released from prison who takes a job driving a prostitute to her customers. George has been shunned by former colleagues and his ex wife and struggles to make a living.
The film has good acting and is very well photographed. Again with having first seen Bob hoskins in the film, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and having seen that film an uncountable number of times before seeung him in other films, it is hard to see Hoskins in any other role.
The film recieved an R rating in the US for violence, profanity, and brief female nudity. This DVD has been approved by director Neil Jordan and has 2 special features. There is a theatrical trailer and audio commentary by director Niel Jordan and actor Bob Hoskins which was originally recorder for the laserdisc edition in 1996

Mona Lisa is an atmospheric , bitter and at the same time romantic film which grows on you as time goes by . Jordan displays London's underground society in a dark yet strangely tangible way . Hints and secrets are being constantly unfolded here with a sharp sensitivity . Life has let down our heroes . They rarely smile , even less often relax and enjoy themselfs . Their worries don't let them do so . There's a bizzare chemistry between Hoskins and the extremelly underrated Tyson which is undeniably affecting while Caine is also perfect as the pimp whose demands never seem to end .

This is Neil Jordan's best film and Hoskins' second best performance after Long Good Friday. The transfer is well up to Criterion standards and the extras illuminating. However, there aappears to be a problem with the sound editing of the DVD: picture and sound aren't precisely synchronized in either of the two copies I've attempted to buy (I've kept neither) -- which renders the experience of watching the DVD more frustrating than it should be. Have others had this problem with their copies?
