Based on the novel of the same name by Susan Isaacs, Shining Through is a World War II drama film starring Michael Douglas and Melanie Griffith. The Razzie Awards declared the movie as the Worst Picture of 1992, as it focused more on the sex appeal between the two lead actors rather than the story. Several amusing parts of the novel were also not included in the movie, and those that made the cut were poorly done. In her review of the movie, Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote that “David Seltzer’s film version of Shining Through manages to lose also the humor of Susan Isaacs’ savvy novel. Even stranger than that is the film’s insistence on jettisoning the most enjoyable parts of the story.”
