Nice scenes and music & ideal for a rendezvous
15 November 2000 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

The movie includes beautiful sceneries from Paris and everything else. Many people say that actress Julie Delarme was quite pretty in this film. The story is cute, and some parts are very funny. The music is excellent (featuring Massive Attack, Beethoven and Bartok). I think this movie is ideal for seeing it with your girl/boyfriend. (note: although it's a Hungarian production, there isn't too much about Hungary in it. The story goes in France.)
