Frühstück bei Ihr (1990)35K
Frühstück bei Ihr: Directed by Luis Mandoki. With Susan Sarandon, James Spader, Jason Alexander, Kathy Bates. Lust turns to love for a 40-ish working-class woman and a 20-ish yuppie adman with little in common.
“In this movie, the powerful Susan Sarandon plays a waitress at this cheesy little hamburger joint and gets hooked up with James Spader, a clueless rich guy who is controlled by the combination of his weak will and his overbearing parents. Spader is fine, but heu0026#39;s been better many times. The movie is fine and sort of a realistic version of Pretty Woman. Jason Alexander and Kathy Bates are fine. But who really cares about any of this?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe real reason to see this movie is that, while sleeping next to Spader, Sarandon wakes up in the middle of the night and decides to seduce him. She strips off her top, revealing an amazing body that is both non-Hollywood and incredibly sexual and womanly, and then proceeds to perform acts on Spader that are still illegal in certain Southern states. She is both in control and incredibly vulnerable. She is a sexual powerhouse who is desperate for love. She is secure in the strength and power of her body, while totally longing for love and security to be returned. And she looks great naked. Yes she does.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI must say that since watching this movie at its original release, I have had a steady stream of impure thoughts about Susan Sarandon. I know sheu0026#39;s a mom, a political activist, the lifelong partner of Tim Robbins and probably pushing 50, but holy smokes, I sure wish sheu0026#39;d make another film like this and show us again what it means to be truly sexy.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYikes. I think itu0026#39;s time to rent The Hunger again.”
