    So Cary grant and Audrey Hepburn are unfortunately dead. That means
    director Jonathan Demme (`Silence of the Lambs’) must find suitable
    replacements for his remake of `Charade’ called `The Truth about Charlie.’
    Will Smith was his first choice-Mark Wahlberg (`Planet of the Apes’) took
    the Grant role. Thandi Newton (`Mission Impossible 2′) plays Hepburn’s
    role. Neither carries the film, which requires a certain amount of
    international sophistication and charm.

    Set in Paris, `The Truth about Charlie’ starts with a murder and the
    victim’s money, which everyone seems to want. It has touches of the old
    American love of Paris, e.g., the tower appears regularly. But it is a more
    modern Paris than the original film’s: Cinematographer Tak Fujimoto (`Signs’
    `The Silence of the Lambs’) said, `We wanted to make the city feel
    mysterious and scary. We wanted it overcast and gray-different from the
    traditional view of Paris, more realistic, more paranoid.’

    A Ferris-wheel scene with Wahlberg and Tim Robbins, who reprises the Walter
    Matthau role, evokes the mystery and danger of Sir Carol Reed’s `Third Man.’
    That most American of images, the incarcerated Hannibal Lecter, ends the
    film with a fitting tribute to his invulnerability.

    Back to Wahlberg and Newton. The success of the film, then and now, rests
    with the leads, and they failed. Wahlberg is flat, expressionless, 2
    dimensional. Newton lacks the acting chops to navigate the aftershocks of a
    husband’s murder and the barrage of interest in his money, hidden somewhere
    in plain sight. Robbins comes closest to a screen presence, part
    mountebank, part protector, and part enigma.

    The original title `Charade’ better expresses the delicious ambiguity of
    European intrigue where nothing is as it seems, and people are not what they
    appear. In this regard, `Charlie’ fulfills the promise. For a modern look,
    it also succeeds.

    But in an overall comparison between the 2 films, `Charlie’ is the
    imposter-no ambiguity intended.
