Vanessa Paradis against Jean Reno, a Witch against a Warlock
10 October 2009 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Un Amour de Sorcière had been marketed worldwide with its English feature under the title of "Witch Way Love", that includes the same cut as the French version. Obviously, each one of the actors have done their own voice-over dubbing. During the Autumn of 1998, while Alice Hoffman's novel adaptation film "Practical Magic" was at the theatres, Witch Way Love was on the TV channels in response to that. Both Nicole Kidman and Vanessa Paradis, having the kindred spirits, had made people think they watch the same movie what they've seen on silver-screen.

In my opinion, Witch Way Love delivers a warmer welcome from a deeper fantasy world. Whereas, Practical Magic was happening in the real world. Other than the great chemistry between Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman; the concept was a failure, since it was an awful adaptation. Though, Witch Way Love was its director's self-written production and whole actors here have offered a great commitment. Technically we're focused into an outstanding cinematography.

The plot is about the endless rivalry between the good and the evil. Even though the good is weak, is not alone. For the evil draws negativity, distrust and bad reputation among the authorities of the fantasy world-like the immortal wizard Merlin- ; the whole world comes together to assist the good against the villain. Vanessa Paradis as the good-hearted witch shares the leading role with Jean Reno playing her cousin Molok,the grim warlock.

This film is one of Vanessa Paradis's career highlights. On the other hand, Jean Reno didn't fit with the evil character, for his mood was more likely to play within a duo in order to be funny and evil at once. The cast should have been planned better. Jean Reno needed a partner.

Looking for a godfather for the last infant of their witch race; Morgane(Vanessa Paradis) came across with an adventurer, who shares the same rising sign of the same zodiac sign and born on the same day and the same night with the same eclipse of the moon with the baby. So, she reads the birthstone to cast a spell on the adventurer to have him as the godfather of the baby. But the spell has a side effect that she falls in love with the adventurer. There are so many coincidences or better to say serendipity almost every other scene for endless laughs. It's an excellent choice for a family movie.
