Goofs

I'm not sure if this counts, but at one point, Cara is signing a letter to send to the author and putting it in a priority mail envelope. She then folds the edge over to seal it, but she never removed the protective strip, so it wouldn't have stuck. See more »

Quotes

Cara Thompson: Where do you want to start?
Megan: I want to go back to the womb. My life had promise at that point.

Moving elegance and delicateness
27 February 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

The novel written by Philip Naudet is his love story with Claire; a real love story, lived in Paris, a generation before Cara (he is about 30 years older than Cara). Cara's job, as a publisher, brings her close to Philip, because she is interested to publish Philip writing.

During the film, Philip novel is a conducting thread which leads Cara to moving discoveries. She discovers in Philip a sensitive soul mate, who loves the same way she does. And she actually falls in love with him. She also discovers in the love story of the novel, her own love story. Even in the fact that the last chapter of the novel hasn't been written yet, the same way the last move of her love affair with Allan Roberts hasn't still been done.

When the film reaches its end, one realizes that Cara heart passed through a very rich experience: she had a love affair with Allan Roberts, before she met Philip; then, she nurtured a delicate platonic love for Philip (thanks to Philip), and finally she devises a way of getting together again with the guy she loves, Alan Roberts, and with whom it'a possible to proceed the love story.

This magic is due to the genius of Philip who lived a great love story some years ago, who is eternally able to fall in love, whose extreme elegance, and delicateness, makes it possible to give to his love for Cara platonic issues.

Additional magic is provided by the parallel between the actual characters and love stories and those of Philip novel.

This film, as a whole, has plenty of beautiful, elegant and delicate moves. This makes it a beautiful and moving film which is worth it to be seen.
