This movie is based on the book "Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris" by Paul Gallico published in 1958. Paul wrote a series of four books about Mrs. 'Arris - "Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris", "Mrs. 'Arris Goes to New York", "Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Parliament", and "Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Moscow". See more »
Yes, the movie is sweetly unbelievable. The soundtrack is pleasant, the scenery is beautiful and the story line predictable. For some unknown reason, I can't get this movie out of my mind! Maybe because I watch it on video regularly...hahahahaha I'd never heard of Bluteau before this...WOW! what a performance! I've also watched Black Robe several times simply because he was in it. I love the dichotomy between his strength and vulnerability. This movie ends and I feel GOOD about people; you can't say that about many movies these days. I HIGHLY recommend this movie!
