I liked this movie. However, the quality of the DVD had much to be desired. The sound was sub-par, though the picture was the real problem. It was quite dark, and it was difficult to make out what was happening on the screen. (I'm still not sure exactly how the movie ended.) The DVD I saw included English subtitiles, and had the title "C'est la Vie, Mon Cheri".
The quality of the DVD was a shame, because the movie was quite good. The music in the movie is also quite entertaining, especially as they explore different styles (from Jazz to Hong Kong pop). The movie itself starts off slow, then picks up speed, only to calm down at the end with the final 'tear-jerker' portion of the movie. If it were given an MPAA rating in the US, it would probably be G or PG.
