Sienna Miller and James Franco star in first-time producer/director Gregory Mackenzie's twisted romance about a honeymooning couple who discovers that sometimes love is stronger than death. Recent parolee Silas (Franco) has just been blackmailed into marrying the beautiful Camille (Miller), and he's none to happy about the arrangement; despite the fact that he can't stand her, she still worships the ground he walks on. But now the law is family, and should the union fail, Silas' new uncle-in-law, Sheriff Foster (Scott Glen), will ensure that the disgruntled groom is sent back to the slammer in a flash. Immediately after the wedding, however, things get complicated when Silas and Camille are run off the road by a reckless truck driver. When Silas regains conscious and stumbles over to Camille's contorted body, it's obvious that she's suffered a fatal injury in the accident. After fleeing the scene and attempting to summon help, Silas returns to the sight of the crash and finds Camille nursing a serious neck injury down by the river while frantically trying to get the grass stains out of her wedding dress. Desperate, the couple hitches a ride with the nomadic Cowboy Bob (David Carradine), eventually realizing that Camille didn't survive the accident despite the fact that she's somehow able to walk and talk with the living. As Camille's body begins to decay, the situation grows complicated when the couple learns that the police are on their trail for an imagined robbery and murder. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Its amazing what kind of films you can watch instantly on Netflix. This was one of them. It really was quite something. It was a good blend of romance, drama, and dark comedy. "Camille" is a dark romantic dramedy.
James Franco is great like always. Even in films that aren't of the best quality (i.e. "Spider-Man 3", "The Green Hornet"), this man can still shine. He can also make a good southern accent in the film. He was great in the film. I think I would trust him to carry a corpse around the country. Sienna Miller of "G.I. Joe" fame plays Camille. I don't think anyone else could have played the character. She was very good. Miller and Franco are the only big names in the cast. I don't know anyone else. But the supporting was great and knew hot to react with a living corpse walking around.
There really isn't much special effects. There was a weird dream sequence with a weird effect. It was cheesy but fit with the film. The writing was also great!
"Camille" is a unique little indie flick. I wish it got more attention from the public. If you love ghost films or dark romances like "Corpse Bride", seek out "Camille". It is really something. Its a great dark romance.
A watched Camille a while back, and the only thing that is really sticking out is that the film is incredibly trippy. The humor and charm, while good, really is forgettable. Still, the actual story and style is so delightfully twisted and wacked-out that you cannot really help but like it, at least to some degree.
Not as interesting as it seems. It has potential, but lost me about 45 mins in. I expected a self-advertised dark comedy to be quite a lot darker. The characters are poorly written and unlikable (some unnecessary like David Carradine's part). Skip it.
Camille would literally DIE for Silas , turns out, she did, in this great little Wackadoodle of a Dark, Romantic ,Screwball Comedy staring James Franco as Silas & Sienna Miller as Camille.Silas is a Parolee that is "Shot Gunned Wedding"ed into Marrying his Childhood Sweetie who is always Sappy Happy Optimistic & Sweet.Which bugs the heck out of this Nasty Loser who doesn't deserve her.Until, while fleeing the State to Niagra Falls for an Unauthorized Honeymoon(he's on Parole, naughty boy), while riding a Motorcycle, they get in an accident that seems fatal for her, but is it? Is she Fine? Undead? Lots of interesting things happen on this Journey of Discovery(in more way's than one).Shopping Spree's, Pastel Horse's, the Kindness of Cowboy Bob(David Carradine), & suddenly he see's the beauty of her, & life.A fresh & entirely new Twist on a Twisted Romance Movie, with the best Over the Edge Ending since Thelma & Louise.This Film may be too Quirky for everyone, & I am a Quirky Romantic & really loved it.
I had no idea what to expect from this movie but for the images I seen during the menu selection. What I saw quickly made me judge this movie as cheezy and made me ask myself, "oh goodness, what did the wife drag me into this time?" But, soon as we started the movie... I was blown away with how interesting it turned out. In my opinion, the movie was very humerous and full of love, passion, and the suspense of wanting to know what was going to happen next. For me, it was a true rollercoaster of emotions and this movie completely threw me for a loop. I had no idea what was going to happen from one minute to the next, and I must say... I was so emotionally attached to the drama going on in this movie that it made it almost unbearable to think of anything bad happening to the characters. This movie was great and I highly recommend it.
Camille isn't the "average" romantic comedy, but it is romantic, and it is funny. There is no real catagory, so don't expect the average anything from this movie. Though I can tell you it is predictable, it's the journey that's the fun part, who cares if you know the destination. James Franco and Sienna Miller had extreme chemistry, and both of their acting jobs were great, though Franco's felt out of place on him. (probablly because this isn't his normal role). Overall, the film deserves veiwing, but viewer beware, this is "normal".
What an adorable and defective couple. Miller and Franco are great together and the supporting cast is great too. The plot is a bit unbelievable, but it is required to get the end result. The horse jumping into Niagara Falls was a beautiful ending for this slightly disjointed and disturbing love affair.
This was ok,James Franco,although a complete ass in the beginning of the movie winds up being a real sweetheart later on,him and Sienna Miller make a cute couple on the very interesting tale of Camille.
