the exquisite remembrance of Ghislaine's dance
28 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

Toutes ces belles promesses is a very charming movie. It's the story of Marianne. She visits her family"s home, and remembers of her childhood. Jeanne Balibar who is a very good french actress gives to this film greats qualities. This movie is a TV's movie but it 's an excellent work a charming small opera. In the very good stories there is always a hidden flower or jewel which reveal the talent of the Author. In this movie I found this hidden jewel it is the scene of Ghislaine's dance (Valérie Crunchant). I appreciate a lot this exquisite remembrance of childhood. Valérie Crunchant appears to be a very sensitive actress, probably a new french talent. I hope we will see her again in other movies.
