In my personal list of the best films i have seen in my life so far, "37°2 le matin" is sometimes placed in the top 10, sometimes below, but until now there are not enough films to replace it, even if it is now 15 years old.
A wonderful book by one of France's best authors was turned in into a beautiful film, one of the best, European cinema has created so far. Not even a bit old-fashioned, full of life, passion, tragedy, madness and love. A real classic. And i am not sure, it will be replaced in my top-list by another movie in the next years.
