Did You Know?


In the picture of a naked Adele you can see a statue in the background. This is a reference to the Dutch translation of 'Nicci French''s novel "Killing me Softly" ("Bezeten van mij" in Dutch), as those certain statues are always used as covers in Dutch translations of Nicci French.


Alice's bra is alternately on/off between shots during the love-making scene in the library.

User Review

Razzie material

Rating: 5/10

"Killing Me Softly" tells of a couple who has sex, gets married, and then
has problems because she (Graham) grows increasingly suspicious of him
(Fiennes) whom she never really got to know before the marriage (duh). On
the downside, the film has a thin story full of plot holes and
implausibilities with ponderous music which is always off target and a
perfectly awful school girl performance by Graham. On the upside, it's a
good shoot with good camera work and lots of Graham skin. Overall,
Me Softly" is a classy loser only for the less discerning viewer who wants
little suspense (very little) to zone to. (C)
