SFF Day 10: Cheri

Michelle Pfeiffer is perfectly cast as the aging courteson in 1920's Paris whose relationship with the son of a fellow courtesan increases in complexity as the film progresses.

The film is beautifully shot and has the right mix of support characters who rain reality down of the couple who progress through the film in an almost dreamlike state sustaining their illusions (to each other and themselves) for the duration of the fim until the inevitable but well played out conclusion.

An ambitious film that delivers on much and wove its spell slowly but steadily.
