This is a magical movie.
16 December 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film on television in early 1999. It is a magical, touching movie which is also very sad. Vadim Jean the director first came out with Leon The Pig Farmer which I didn't think much of. I can't believe the same person then came out with this fantastic film which I watch at least once a week. The characterisations are very perceptive. The way some of the people talk and behave in this film is very true to life. This film has humour, tragedy and magic. All round highly recommended. If you liked Rob Reiner' Stand By Me you should love this film.
