Trivia

Julius and Lauren quote Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Sonnet #43 from the Sonnets from the Portuguese. It begins with "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways." The two recited the last lines, which are "and, if God choose,/ I shall but love thee better after death." See more »

Quotes

Daniel Michon: ...that legend is just another one of your damn lies.
Julius: You could make it true. What are legends anyway but stories about ordinary people doing extraordinary things? Of course, it takes courage and imagination... not everybody has that. I may be an old fraud Daniel, but I do know this: something that two people who are in love create together against impossible odds, can hold them together... forever.

User Reviews

A feel-good movie that isn't overly sappy.
16 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is definitely a movie that leaves you with a good feeling (interesting that every person who wrote a review here has liked it). Two kids meet in France, the boy a citizen of the country and a young American girl who's living there temperarily. Both kids are very likable and wise beyond their years without being arrogant or snobbish. They meet a shady but nice old man played very well by Laurence Olivier and set out on a trip from France to Venice Italy.

The film deals with the relationship between the boy and girl who are at that age when the hormones are just starting to kick in. The movie is well acted with good performances by all the leads, great scenery and has a great musical score by George Delerue.

Be interesting if they made a sequel to this with the kids (now adults) meeting again at 40.
