My Comment on "Pleure Pas Germaine", 22 October 2005
Author: Dimi Sake ( from Belgium

It doesn't happen too often a film really moves me, but this one did. Great acting with really astonishing performances guided by a good script, beautiful cinematography and a touching score. Dirk Roofthooft acts truly great and convincing and so do the others. I recognized many things in this movie and that too made it a special experience to me. The problems a family has to face, I guess, we all know. I'm praising this film, yes, because we need this kind of films. Everyone has seen dozens of popular American movies and really, if you see a film like this, it makes you wonder why you watch so many American flicks. This film has a soul, it's honest and true. It's full of tears, but there is room for joy. This is about life and so many other powerful things we tend to forget.

For everyone who's interested in true great cinema, you should see this film. It beholds exactly what a real film should behold. An atmosphere, a good story, all kinds of emotions and lessons of life.
