    Synopsis


    Under the Cherry Moon
    Diminutive pop star Prince plays another variation on the suave gigolo in this vanity piece. Set on the French Riviera, the story follows Christopher Tracy as he plays piano in a bistro and woos rich Continental ladies for dollars. Tracy and his accomplice Tricky (Jerome Benton of The Time), compete for the attention of a fabulously rich heiress (Kristen Scott Thomas), much to the dismay of her stodgy father (Steven Berkoff). The rest of the screen time is padded with songs and musical montages. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

      Okay let's be clear this was a very risky move by Prince, coming off the success of Purple Rain this was a follow up directorial debut of Prince. It was shot in Black & White and starts off fun but lags toward the end. I enjoyed this movie for two reasons the music and the back and forth banter between Prince and Jerome(from The Time). It is also the big screen debut of Kristin Scott Thomas(The English Patient). If you looking for a movie that is a great romantic drama this is not it, but if you are a Prince fan and are nostalgic for some his greatest music then this is a treat.

      The music is original and a bit of a departure from his normal sound, and the movie is a bit weird being a black and white period piece, but Prince does shine as always. To get the full enjoyment out of this movie, it would definitely help if you were a Prince fan. This movie does not have the broad appeal of Purple Rain. However, this film contains the heartbreaking song Sometimes It Snows in April which is about the death of a friend and, coincidentally, the month that Prince died. Prince forever....

      Prince directed this black & white love story. Prince plays Christopher Tracy a gigolo on the French Riviera for rich cougar divorcees. He discovers a young girl played by Kristin Scott Thomas about to receive her inheritance. Christopher and Tricky (played by Jerome Benton) try to beat the other in winning her heart. Funny thing happens is Christopher truly falls in love with her. Her father does not like Christopher and opposes their love. How does it end? Purchase it and find out. Yet another must have for any Prince fan!

      Prince returns to the silver screen in his second movie. While it does not have the impact of his debut in "Purple Rain", the music in this movie pulls the film along to its conclusion. The story itself is somewhat weak, but was entertaining nonetheless. The highlight for me, as it would be for the follow-up "Under the Graffiti Bridge" is the music. Taken as one long music video promoting the "Parade" album, this movie is fantastic. Recommended and essential for any Prince fan out there like myself.

      Prince returns in his second musical feature Under the Cherry Moon. In this film Prince stars as a gigolo type singer who pursues a debutante played by Kristin Scott Thomas. The film also features Jerome Benton, and Morris Day and The Time writers of The Bird and Jungle Love. A decent musical/dramatic film. This one also came in purple packaging and was for my girlfriend for Christmas last year.

      Prince's Directorial Debut

      Under the Cherry Moon you can tell was a labor of love for Prince. It tried to weave an entertaining story of a guy living off of divorcees until he falls really in love with one young lady. Thought the movie was ok, but I did like how the movie was filmed in black and white to give an artistic feel to it. Again as with the 2 other Prince movies, the soundtrack is the true highlight here.

      For die hard fans only. This movie is dreadful. It may look like a throwback to 1930's costume dramas but it's a very loose rendering of a love story between a gigolo and a socialite. Badly acted, barely written and employing the word directed is being too kind. The music is great but it's not around very often. Buy the soundtrack instead. Prince's legacy is about music, anyway.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Prince will truly be missed. Look forward to the after life of new releases ahead from Prince. He will always be in spirit and the soul of his musical gifts that he leaves behind for many to enjoy for many lifetime for the past, the present, and the future. May my Prince rest in peace as we all look to continue to carry on your greatest treasures. Much Love Always
