The Gift in English
8 November 2004 | by (Langenzenn, Germany) – See all my reviews

We found the movie with the help of someone from the board and I ordered it from amazon.com. I now have it on VCD and it is also good in English. For some reason it didn't gain success. It should make a comeback on DVD. It probably would sell this time. It was available in a Z shop for those who are interested in VHS. It is a typical French Comedy in the way they present it with everything else thrown in to laughs frowns and etc. The actors are good and in France very well known. We will watch this movie probably once a year along with our top 100 videos that we see annually. Included is Overboard, Gigi, My Fair Lady, Gone with the wind, Multiplicity, and I personally have seen Back to the future over 40 times.
