Quotes

Countess Aurelia: Say it. Say that you love him before it's too late. Let another moment witch between you and it will become a month, a year, a decade. Your hair will be white. His cuffs will be frayed. And there will be another madwoman in Chaillot. Say it. Before the music stops.

23 December 2000 | by (England) – See all my reviews

A delightful, gentle, quirky and poetic movie. The entire story takes place in the mind of the title character - an eccentric old dear who dreams of a world in which love is requited and evil is simply banished back into the darkness from which it came. The film is by turns moving, funny and magical

  • and the cast (especially Evans, Brynner, Homolka and Kaye) are a


delight. If you are in the mood to be taken into a gentle, unfashionable, charming world of love, poetry and idealistic whimsy, then this movie is for you.
