The Honorary Consul/Beyond the Limit has an especially low reputationin the US, mainly because of the antipathy many feel to Richard Gere,but it's one of the best Graham Greene adaptations to date, andinfinitely more successful than Philip Noyce's disappointing version ofThe Quiet American (which ex...
This is a mildly interesting picture for viewers who like a hint ofsubtletyto spice their viewing experience. The problem is that this film alsocontains quite a lot of uneven action and performances.The action is based upon a book by Graham Greene, a morality talein which Greene shows how a seeming...
Competent adaptation of a typical Graham Greene story, a tale of dilemma,forgiveness and redemption in a quasi-fascist South America. Directionandacting are both ordinary, though Michael Caine and Richard Gere are atleastwell cast; Bob Hoskins (an Argentinian policeman!) less so. Alwaysinteresting...
Intriguing music and lighting choices with some good camera movementand angles keep this film relatively interesting on an audio and visuallevel. However, they do not compensate for the film having quite alimited story of just a lightly developed romance during politicalunrest. There are political t...
There's a solid film here lurking about but it never quite surfaces.It's based on a Graham Greene novel (that I haven't read) and it dealswith an English/Paraguayan doctor, Eduardo Plarr, (Gere) who getsinvolved in a conspiracy to kidnap an American Ambassador in Argentina.However a mix-up occurs an...
Richard Gere plays Dr. Eduardo Plarr, an Anglo-Paraguayan doctor whounwittingly gets entangled in the kidnapping plot of an American consulby a novice group of Paraguayan rebels in exchange for ten of theirimprisoned comrades.The plan goes awry as the rebels mistakenly kidnap his new friendinstead -...
"Beyond the Limit" is a film adaptation of Graham Greene's novel "TheHonorary Consul", which was the movie's original title.Graham Greene (1904-1991) was one of the best writers of the 20thcentury and maybe any century. His material is so strong that a moviebased on his work becomes a question almos...
This is an average pot-boiler from the Graham Greene novel, andalthough it was better than I originally remembered when watching itagain recently, it certainly isn't at all memorable. That said, thereare some welcome production values and the cast are worth watching.It's essentially a Richard Gere v...
It was difficult to watch this film because of the miscasting ofRichard Gere who seems at last partially anesthesthetized through theentire movie. There is not one bit of passion in his manner or hisspeech and, whenever he is on the screen, there is a hole through whichall tension drains. Bob Hoskin...
The Honorary Consul is a film that I strongly feel didn't come off. Thescript which I could spout out great bits of thought provokingdialogue, ala: Christopher Hampton, as having seen the movie, god knowshow many times, still made for an interesting affair, somethingdifferent. Set in Argentina, Sout...
Believe this, I have watched this so many times, but in part. I couldspout off lines in Christopher Hampton's script, at the click of afinger. I love the settings for this movie in which Gere, an Englishspoken doctor, falls for a newly married young woman, Clara (ElpidiaCarrillo) who is earlier seen...
Competent adaptation of a typical Graham Greene story, a tale of moraldilemma, forgiveness and redemption in a quasi-fascist South America.Direction and acting are ordinary, although Michael Caine and Richard Gereare at least well cast; Bob Hoskins (an Argentinian policeman!) less so.Not badly done,...
