This is a complex, gimmicky, manipulative and insanely romantic film, and it's my all-time favorite movie, bar none. And I prefer the U.S. version, which was truncated somewhat from Lelouche's original, because it punctuates the essence of the film -- that we are all somehow destined to our fate, even going several generations back, but we must cooperate by following our hearts and souls. I've seen this movie more than 20 times and it still fascinates me.
