  • The amazing performance of Greta Garbo is just enough to watch this movie. We can see a sick, weak and beautiful lady as the protagonist. She was Oscar nominated for the Best Actress in a Leading Role. Director George Cukor has done a great job in making the movie a very interesting Romantic Drama. Camille is highly recommended for those who are looking for great movies.

  • 1847 - In the gay half-world of Paris, the gentlemen of the day met the girls of the moment at certain theatre, balls and gambling clubs where the code was discretion ... but the game was romance. This is the story of one of those pretty creatures who lived on the quicksands of popularity - Marguerite Gautier, who brightened her wit with champagne, and sometimes her eyes with tears. From the novel of Alexandre Dumas fils this is the story which Giuseppe Verdi took for La Traviata.
