THE TRUTH ABOUT CHARLIE
A Jonathan Demme misfire. He has remade Charade, the 1963 booby-trapped romantic thriller, into a caper that twists itself in knots to look fancier than a mere caper. Thandie Newton, in the Audrey Hepburn role, arrives in Paris only to learn that her art-dealer husband has been mysteriously murdered. Demme shoots the convoluted cloak-and-dagger plot in the manner of some arty new-wave documentary, and Newton and her costar, Mark Wahlberg, look great but have no chemistry.
