Goofs

(flopped shot) Throughout the film, the main character has a mutilated left hand, which he wears in a leather strap. But in the long scene where he walks alongside Sandrine Bonnaire on her bicycle, and both meet the local priest also on bicycle, it's his right hand that is mutilated! Comparing the bell on the bicycle with other scenes, one realizes that this whole scene has been mounted in a mirrored way. See more »

A Very Good Man Filled with Love and Punctured by Xenophobia
9 July 2006 | by (boston mass. usa) – See all my reviews

I have just seen this today at the French Film Festival at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. What a very very romantic story; akin to The Widow of St.Pierre for me.I sighed such a big sigh when it was over. More than many films I have seen recently, I did NOT want it to end.It took me in and wrapped me up as only a truly wonderful film can do.Maybe I'm impartial. I know that Gregori Derangere has caused me to fall completely in love with a film character for the first time in SO many years. He is just so GOOD, so filled with love for everyone around him, and so quiet and handsome. As the French might say, Un Hero Veritable. And the xenophobia of these island Bretons is just SO oppressive and so insidious.For most of them, getting rid of the handsome newcomer is what preoccupies them for the length of the film. The cinematography ,framing, pace, mood- all excellent. Hats off to the director and screenwriter who understand that the most convincing, tantalizing and mesmerizing way to present sexual charisma and chemistry- is not through bare flesh but through glances and brief silent encounters. I know-I'm partial. Nevertheless,I am STILL sighing.
