Good movie, amazing soundtrack
26 June 2001 | by (Cambridge, MA) – See all my reviews

The movie is very good, although I wouldn't say brilliant. Jean-Paul Belmondo is a great actor (and a rather familiar face), and his presence alone contributes a lot to the overall impression the movie creates. The soundtrack, however, is simply out of this world. What Loic Dury (DJ Loik) and, I think, Magister Dixit, have created is nothing but a piece of art - it is by far the most amazing soundtrack I've ever heard. Really. I think the movie is more than worth watching if only to listen to it. And, yeah, it's good for your French language skills :)
