Action/Adventure, Drama
Not much was the matter with Diva in its first run back in 1982, so Rialto Pictures re-released director Jean-Jacques Beineix's still-stylish urban thriller as is. Same intricate plot, from the novel by Delacorta, involving a love-struck Parisian postal messenger (Frederic Andrei); his idol, a never-recorded African-American opera soprano (Wilhelminia Wiggins Fernandez); two sets of pursuing hoods (including mean-mugged Dominique Pinon); a Vietnamese nymphet (Thuy An Luu) and her French sugar daddy (Richard Bohringer); two clandestine audiocassette MacGuffins; beaucoup de smart visuals by DP Philippe Rousselot; and, of course, the famous aria from Catalani's La Wally. Now, as then, a sexy, exuberant romp that reminds us why we love French films. Chapeau encore (117 min., 1982)!
