beautiful
9 February 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

its beauty is result of precise acting and inspired exploration of story. dramatic, touching, useful, it is not a story about fight of man but remember of basic values. and this is its secret - it is far to be perfect but it remains convincing at whole. a film about generosity, with impressive images and few extraordinary moments. a film about sacrifice, with American blockbusters spirit but different in its essence.a Christian movie but special in the image of God presentation. like many French historical movies , it has good and bad parts. but the basic purpose is clear - discover a man work and a splendid sacrifice. remind a big and not easy question of each period. and suggest a solution. that is all.
