I was given this movie and did not know anything about it. I have been very touched by the story. The actors are very good in their roles and don't overact. The film was quite hard sometimes however it really shows how strong the family links between brothers and sisters can be. The relationship between Lili and Grenouille is also full of reality. It is hard sometimes to understand how the father react to the cruel words read by his daughter on the cards she received but it is his way to protect her and it is a very noble act. Melanie Laurent is a little rising star for the french cinema. I really advise you to see this movie as it is a beautiful one.
