This is a great movie
20 May 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Unlike the other reporter, I found this movie really great. This should be considered as one of the best movies of the years 2000 and is definitely (and undoubtedly) a lot better than an average American TV-movie (I don't even know how somebody could consider it that low, unless he doesn't like french movies at all...?). Like usual all four actors make the movie great, but the plot is good as well. The mood of the story just travels you to another planet and leaves you with a feeling of happiness. My only advice to you is to watch it and over again. Also, the original soundtracks contains some great jewels of music and make this movie even better.
