Nick Hart is a struggling American artist who lives amongst the expatriate community in 1920s Paris. He spends most of his time drinking and socializing in local cafés and pestering gallery owner Libby Valentin to sell his paintings. He becomes involved in a plot by wealthy art patroness Nathalie de Ville to forge three paintings. This leads to several run-ins with American rubber magnate Bertram Stone, who happens to be married to Hart's ex-wife Rachel.

The Reviews for The Moderns (1988) 1080p

A screwball comedy classic, destroyed by poor directionReviewed byerikpsmithVote: 7/10

If ever there was a movie that demanded to be remade, this is the one. The script is a comedy classic, but the direction made it look more like an episode of Twin Peaks or the X-Files. The pacing is sluggish; the actors are dour. What was Alan Rudolph thinking, anyway?

The script, taken by itself, is hilarious, a meditation on art and the pretensions of the "lost generation" of Americans in Paris during the 1920s. It might have been the best American screwball comedy of the eighties -- at least in script form. Most of the time, when a movie goes as far awry as this one does, you think the studio simply assigned the wrong director. But since this was a personal project for Alan Rudolph, and he presumably shaped the script every step of the way, I'm at a loss to understand what went wrong.

I just imagine what this movie might have been, in the hands of, say, Woody Allen, as long as he wasn't doing his Ingmar Bergman thing. Had the characters delivered their lines at a snappy pace; had they kept their tongues in cheek and played their characters as the sly weasels they were supposed to be, well, then, what a romp it might have been. With a jaunty 20s-jazz score, this movie might have been a classic.

As it stands, it's a failure, and I can only hope that someday someone will resurrect the property and give it the production it deserves. But you know, that script is so good -- I still say the movie is worth watching.

Very stylish interpretation of 1920s ParisReviewed byLoulou-8Vote: 7/10

This is a fairly enjoyable tale set in the art world of 1920s Paris. The look of the film and the mood it creates are the most important things; far more important than the enjoyable, yet slow-moving plotline.

It is highly imaginative and its representation of icons such as Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein add an extra dimension to the film.

The only true weak points are some of the dialogues between the two leads; it is sometimes out of place and almost too 'modern'!

All the performances are good but John Lone and Keith Carradine are especially suited to their parts.

A really bad movieReviewed byrichard-1787Vote: 2/10

The sets and costumes for this movie are often very impressive. Some of the photography is very good. There are some fine actors here. Yet this is one of the worst movies I have ever seen! Why? It's the script and, to the extent one can tell, the director, who didn't know what to do with this awful script.

But mostly it's the script. It is stilted beyond belief. Characters do things with no apparent motivation. The character of Hemingway keeps spouting lines that have no connection to anything else, and that often don't mean anything. (If you've seen Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, that only makes some of the similar scenes here look that much worse.) How, I kept wondering, did this script get approved? And why did MGM release this? Take my word for it, it's one truly awful movie.
