Quotes

[first lines]
Elena Martin: Paris, January 6th, 1940. Again, she wrote all night. She stretched, looked out at the rising sun, and bundled up against the early morning chill. As if drawn by some invisible force, she headed off across the awakening city.

A GREAT MOVIE, COMBINING SHOCKING SCENES, PASSION AND EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE.
18 April 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

One of the best films I have recently seen. The main heroes pass through a lot of temptations, agonizing situations and still the magnitude of their love stays above all. The director uses a lot of shocking scenes to describe the passion they felt for each other in the best way. It's the antithesis of this passion and the dramatic way war alienates people from each other that makes this film excellent,the quickly alternating emotions and the performance of the main actors in showing these emotions making it one of the kind.
