I really loved that movie until I saw Lelouch on screen
6 October 2004 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

This is quite an usual "Lelouch" movie: there are many different characters all slightly related to each other and the main subject is "what is it to love". I loved that part of the movie, this is why I go and see Lelouch's movie.

What I didn't like is first the title: very pompous and pretentious I think. Very pretentious also of Lelouch to be himself in his own movie. When he says to the actors that they overact, well he could say this to himself. This last half an hour is wasted, I didn't see the point of it.

in any ways that movie doesn't deserve that after only 3 weeks you can see it on only 2 small screens in Paris... Please if you are in Paris at the moment rush to see it!

Some characters should be developed (the twins in particular) and I suppose they will be in the second part and I hope this huge commercial failure won't compromise the coming out of the next one
