Michel experiences the "grande voyage" into himself
6 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

loved the details of Beineix... it is enjoyable to catch them(if you are careful enough) and try to solve the puzzle..... it is rather more enjoyable to fail solving the puzzle though. fortunately there still exist some films that may surprise you...even the name of the movie is surprising since the genre of film is comedy and the title includes the word of "mortal" i am looking forward to see other works of Jean Jacques Beineix.... good scenery; good acting; nice musics...includes all in balance.. and the result is a real success..deserves watching once again not to miss anything....the original novel is a focus of curiosity for me....the dialogs are poetic and are one of the most memorable features of the movie...
