Very moving, highly recommended.
3 May 2003 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

The pace is gradual, the film is tender. It is incredibly moving and despite the sadness in the story, it is extremely uplifting. I would be very interested in seeing any future directorial projects from Vincent Perez.
