A nice movie
5 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you like French cinematography, you will like this movie. I must respectfully disagree with the previous post, but I liked it. Although it has been a while since I saw this movie, I remember it as being light-hearted, witty and fun to watch.

Also, I seem to remember that the much of the plot takes place in Venice along the Grand Canal, not in Paris. The movie starts in Paris, ends in Venice. Perhaps the previous review was asleep?

Pierre Mondy is a retiring bank employee who is sent on a pleasure trip by his colleagues. On the train he "happens to" meet Clio Goldsmith. His character is a man who is craving adventure after decades of marriage and two kids. Although, having been married to Claudia Cardinale, one does wonder on what planet the scriptwriter was on...

The movie ends on a very high note. Claudia Cardinale travels to Venice and meets her husband and the flame is re-kindled.

While not a grand piece of cinema, it is fun and uplifting. Try it.
