Storyline

Pierre, a professional dancer, suffers from a serious heart disease. While he is waiting for a transplant which may (or may not) save his life, he has nothing better to do than look at the people around him, from the balcony of his Paris apartment. When Elise, his sister with three kids and no husband, moves in to his place to care for him, Pierre does not change his new habits. And instead of dancing himself, it is Paris and the Parisians who dance before his eyes. Written by Guy Bellinger

27 April 2008 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This is a great, lovable film. I am still under the influence of it. Me and my girlfriend simply had to sit in a good restaurant in town afterwards to discuss it over a bottle of Chardonnay. This is so much about life! The director wisely lets the viewers to decide about some points that have been intentionally left in a subtle haze. And he does not want to teach us, does not want to moralize and tell us a great story. This is a fresh, very French movie which is just a great start for the new spring season. It is 130 minutes long, still a lot of people (including us) were reluctant to stand up at the end and leave the room seeing the "Fin" sign. Thanks Monsieur Klapisch for the great evening, and of course everybody who contributed his film, first of all the actors - all of them were very credible and smashing. Sorry if I sound overenthusiastic, but - for me - this was a great experience, indeed. I can only recommend it to everybody. Go, and see it, and make yourself a great evening!
