while the 2004 remake of Alfie wasn't the best movie ever made, it certainly wasn't as terrible as i thought when i first watched it. the second time round i actually enjoyed it, regardless of the fact that jude law was less charming larrikin and more just.....sleazy? the scene that really struck me was when alfie first meets nikki (sienna miller) at a new years eve party. the whole scene had a feeling of whimsy, free spiritedness. it was a whirlwind of fun and bohemia. it was one of those moments that you look at and just think- i wish that was my life!! of course nikki had plenty of her own problems that were addressed later in the film, but in that instant of falling snow, soft yellow light, tipsy giggling, perfect makeup, cheeky grin and enviable clothes......Nikki stole the show.
