Review: Frankie & Johnny (1991)

 "Frankie and Johnny, you know that song?"
Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer in a romantic comedy about love.
Directed by Gary Marshall (Pretty Woman) the film shows Frankie (Pfeiffer), a waitress at a coffee shop in New York, and Johnny, an outgoing ex-con who got hired at the same coffee shop. Frankie got hurt to many times and the last thing she wants is another relationship, but a certain Johnny is crazy for her.
Story has wit and Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino are making a brilliant screen couple.


Influences for Le Café: A waitress struggles with love and has a hard time opening up to new experience. She interacts with the customers in the café. Little background story snippets are coming through. The song Frankie and Johnny is connected to the film. Also in the score the motif of Clair De Lune  is shining through. Its referring to the original play Frankie & Johnny in Clair de Lune.
