First of all I am French and I live in Hollywood and that says a lot. I am usually not keen on French movies except those made before the 70s. We just had the best movies ever in the world. Actors such as Delon, Belmondo, Marais, Bourvil, Fernandel, De Funes were just amazing. Some still play and are worth seeing like JP Mariel, an amazing actor. I met once Lelouch in the street and the guy strikes me as being so nice, so curious. I had to see his last movie. My god. This is what I miss of France. This is France at its best. I hate those critics in France they are all destroying the movie because of the first degree of the movie. In France people say anything as long as it looks intellectual. A movie is made to make us moove. I want to feel and I want to cry, to shout, to laugh. Lelouch has made just that. He has a way to follow actors just like he would caress them. This is beautiful. Lots of small beautiful and full of sensuality scenes. The seduction, the love between the characters are so true and so French. This girl falling in love with an old guy in the street who is poor too..only in France. America has to learn a lot from that movie. It reminds me of la dolce vita with Marcello. It is not a movie, it is a visual poetry. Yes France kept its vitality and grace thanks to Lelouch. Lelouch, please be the next president of USA, you d change everybody. Check out the scene between Arielle Dombasle and our great comic, jazzman mr..I forget his name. There is also a theme behind it...we are all faithful as long as we do not find better. It is not up to me to decide of the reality of it, it is up to you to see the movie and see the truth blowing in front of you. Lelouch is a terrorist of love.
