||Synopsis: In the early 1950s, Martha Beck, who lives with her slightly senile mother, is the head nurse in a Mobile, Alabama hospital. She is bitter about her life, she not having male companionship in large part because she is overweight, while her bitterness in turn does not endear her to people. She is initially angry with her best friend, Bunny, for signing her up to a lonely hearts club, but eventually decides to give it a try. Through it, she meets Ray Fernandez, a suave Spanish immigrant living in New York, he who contacted Martha as the first through the club. After Ray's trip to Mobile to meet Martha, they fall in love. Upon a subsequent visit Martha makes to Ray in New York - which leads to her being fired in part for her time off work - he decides to be up front with her: that she is not only not his "first" but that he is really a con man who, primarily through the club, seduces then bilks lonely women of their money. Pretending to be his sister to prospective targets, Martha ... Written by Huggo

Why did Leonard Kastle make only one movie?When so many "directors" are
allowed to release mediocrities by the dozen,when almost every thriller
looks like the one before?
I saw "the honeymoon killers" at the beginning of the seventies in a
"art et essai" movie theater (in France,"art et essai" means non
-commercial and artistical works).The movie had little impact on the
"mainstream" audience ,and the TV was afraid to broadcast it.
Thirty years later,it still packs a real wallop:it has worn extremely
well,even better than praised classics such as "gun crazy" and "Bonnie
and Clyde".I'm sure it had a strong influence on Francis Girod's "le
trio infernal"(1974)."The honeymoon killers" is unique,a work of the
first order.Hats off to the two leads ,Shirley Stoler and Tony LoBianco
;their casting was ideal.Had the producers hired two stars,the movie
would have lost in credibility.Because,credible,this movie is,and not
because it is a true story:for instance "Bonnie and Clyde" is also a
true story,but the characters are icons,some kind of Robin Hoods,far
from their models.Don't get me wrong,I love Penn's movie,but Kastle's
is a different matter:this director-scenarist shows the couple "au
naturel".We've already met Martha somewhere:she's the fat nurse, par
excellence the outcast,deprived of the thrill of it all,particularly
seduction and love.Her behavior,as horrifying it may be,makes sense.The
whole movie depicts her pursuit of happiness.She's full of
hatred,jealousy and her contempt for these ugly ,old and frivolous
women is so intense it's almost unbearable.She hates them because their
money can buy anything and most of them used to be wooed,something she
has never known and never will.
This is one of the most ambitious side of the screenplay:taking a
subject Alfred Hitchcock partially treated in "shadow of a doubt"
(1942),it pushes it to its absolute limits:all these old biddies in
their" pigpen" (as Joseph Cotten's uncle Charlie said),acting as if
they are twenty-something and still dreaming of Prince Charming are so
hateful the audience almost sides with Martha and her partner.
Ray is a very complex character:it's a gigolo,but in several respects
,he's still a child.Martha is at once his lover,his mother and his
"sister" (they are as like as two peas in a pod ,one character
says,echoing the "gun crazy " heroes,as like as two bullets in a
revolver).Martha seems the leader,Ray acting more as an instrument. As
their crimes become more and more appalling,sexual desire is
increasing."I want to make love" Ray says,after having killed Fay.
Humor (most of the time black) is constant and some of the lines are
hilarious.But the last crime is so horrible it leaves the audience
completely in despair.And ending the movie with a romantic love letter
is a product of pure provocation.
Although by no means a violent movie (particularly when compared to
today's standards),it's definitely one of the most terrifying works of
American cinema.A must .
