It’s that time again when otsoNY revisits 3 previously posted films as an excuse to improve the quality of the images as well as add additional film locations. In previous years, films such Crocodile Dundee, The Prince of Tides, Sliver and The Devil Wears Prada have been revisited. This year’s films include the romantic comedies One Fine Day and the 2004 version of Alfie as well as the mystery horror classic, Rosemary’s Baby.
In One Fine Day, Melanie Parker played by Michelle Pfeiffer, an architect and mother of Sammy, and Jack Taylor played by George Clooney, a newspaper columnist and father of Maggie, are both divorced. They meet one morning when overwhelmed Jack is left unexpectedly with Maggie and forgets that Melanie was to take her to school. As a result, both children miss their school field trip and are stuck with the parents. The two adults project their negative stereotypes of ex-spouses on each other, but end up needing to rely on each other to watch the children as each must save his job.
British actor Jude Law stars as Alfie, a limousine driver who is surrounded by beautiful women, most of them clients, and he lives as a Don Juan, having one night stands with all of them and without any sort of commitment. His girlfriend and single-mother Julie is quite upset with the situation and his best friends are his colleague Marlon and his girlfriend Lonette. Alfie has a brief affair with Lonette, and the consequences of his act forces Alfie to reflect and wonder about his life style.
Rosemary's Baby is a 1968 psychological horror film written and directed by Roman Polanski, based on the bestselling 1967 novel Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin. Mia Farrow plays Rosemary, a pregnant woman who with her husband Guy Woodhouse move into an apartment in a building with a bad reputation. They discover that their neighbours are a very friendly elderly couple named Roman and Minnie Castevet, and Guy begins to spend a lot of time with them. Strange things start to happen: a woman Rosemary meets in the washroom dies a mysterious death, Rosemary has strange dreams and hears strange noises and Guy becomes remote and distant. Then Rosemary falls pregnant and begins to suspect that her neighbours have special plans for her child.
