Steven Spielberg should have seen this excellent French film
Maybe Steven Spielberg should have seen this excellent French film before shooting "Terminal". Stand-by has substance and meaning, an incredible performance by leading lady Dominique Blanc and a formidable supporting cast and excellent cinematography by Tetsuo Nagata. Follow the life of the heroine of this film and see her change as the action progresses. Could be slightly shorter in length but succumb to the pleasures of this excellent original film by first time director Roch Stephanik.
