Storyline

On the eve of her 16th birthday, Sylvie's father needs cash to stay in his castle so he sells Sylvie's favorite thing, a painting of Alain, the lover of Sylvie's grandmother, killed in a duel. Alain's ghost lives in the castle and Sylvie senses his presence, thinks she loves him, and fears that romance from the living will never come her way. Dad prepares a midnight surprise for Sylvie and her party guests: the appearance of the phantom. He's hired an actor, but two young men in love with Sylvie also volunteer to don white robes: Fred, the rich kid who bought the painting, and Ramure, a jewel thief in hiding. The youths declare their love, and Alain's ghost helps resolve all. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

an unconditional of this wonderful film
7 April 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This french film is a jewel of poetry, humor, imagination with polished, right dialogs!! The emotion, is carried there by the music and the play without fault of the actors! One finds in the role of the phantom Jacques Tati! I don't know if this film can be founded in the USA but i hope that people will discover it because of the kind of poetry the same that you can find in "The beauty and the beast" a "Jean Cocteau's "film with Jean Marais and Josette Day. or "The children's of paradise" of "Marcel Carné" with the dialogs of the great poet "Jacques Prévert"!!Odette Joyeux brings all her thanks and her smoothness with the role of Sylvie... The special effects are extremely well adapted and technically realized. No violence, no unaptness, not of vulgarity nor of bad taste in this anthem with imaginary and the love! Sorry for my bad English but I should like to speak of this film that will please everybody who keep already his child soul!
