The excellent romance
2 October 1998 | by (Novosibirsk, Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

One of the best romances of our youth. Even in the awful

Russian translation it charmed. The actor work of the leading duet, especially Nicole Courcel, is on the high level. The high level of the film in whole is the more remarkable, taking into account that a literary precursor (story, on which the screenplay was based) is rather weak.
