Wonderful, 5 April 2006
Author: hallka from United States

Did not know what to expect when I rented this film but I wound up just loving it.

The beautiful Maude Forget just brought out the poignancy of her character of a teenager coping with the angst of first love. Wonderful film.

A must see for anyone needing a break from the car chases, explosions and shoot-'em-ups. Beautiful scenes too in parts of France I would love to live (or retire) in. All in all... you won't regret seeing this film. You'll come away in love with Maude and haunted by the excellent acting of all the players.
