David Bourne (JACK HUSTON), a promising American novelist now living in Paris, meets the volatile and seductive Catherine (MENA SUVARI) and immediately falls under her spell. After a whirlwind romance they set off for their honeymoon on the Cote d'Azur. As David struggles to control his emotions, Catherine raises the erotic tension by bringing David a "present" in the form of the sultry Marita (CATERINA MURINO), an Italian heiress, who provokes excitement and jealousy in both David and Catherine. As he becomes a pawn between the two manipulative women, David retreats into his writing.

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Los Angeles Times

    Handsomely presented, with locations in Spain and Africa, the film at moments accomplishes its ambitions of being a tart piece of steamed-up Jazz Age storytelling.

    Variety Ronnie Scheib

    Garden of Eden sends sleek, half-nude bodies glumly cavorting through lush Riviera landscapes in a paradigm of unintentional camp.

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    For all the cinematic crimes against him, there has been no book-to-screen translation of his work quite as atrocious as Hemingway's Garden of Eden.
