i saw it in Paris opening night
10 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i happened to be in Paris for the opening night. i accidentally made it in to the showing by chance, i knew someone who knew someone, etc. the Joplin family was in attendance. also the family of Marie Trintignant who had just passed away soon before the showing of this. it was all very intense. i don't speak french much and since we were watching this in France there were no subtitles for me to read. even with all that, i could definitely follow the story well even without the words. i actually loved it. later i was able to get a script and a working copy subtitled and then i truly liked it even more. i wish it was out there available for us to see... it's a classic.
