Synopsis: A look at the life of French actor Hervé Villechaize, co-star of the hit '70s TV series "Fantasy Island", who took his own life in 1993 at the age of 50.
Even tho you know the outcome you never really want it to get there. It would have been nice to hear about Herve's earlier career before the Bond movie but we do get a lesson in his early artistic career. His relationship with his mother is left for you to decipher as well as his broken marriage that is only slightly touched upon. Overall this is a fun tale of a broken man that I never knew was broken, like most, I saw him as "The Plane, The Plane" charter and not the pain that came with it. Dinner does open your eyes to his career but I feel it lacks in some of those aspects as well. Don't skip out on Dinner with Herve, in the end, is well worth your time and effort, especially if you grew up on 70's TV.
