Wonderful movie!
6 September 2004 | by (bielefeld, germany) – See all my reviews

The movie is really great, especially the performance of Romy Schneider, the most beautiful actress in the history of cinema, and the wonderful songs in the film, especially "What's on your mind". It's worth to watch the movie just to see the unique face of Romy Schneider and her brilliant acting. When I saw the movie for the first time, I found it quite boring, but now after watching it several times, I must say that he is a little masterpiece, not because of the story, but of the great acting of Romy Schneider, Donald Houston and Dennis Waterman, the soundtrack, and the camera. Maybe the movie will be "discovered" by others, I hope it!
