Very nice movie about a touchy issue (cancer)
16 September 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

opening scene : "Hello" "who's ringing?" "I am your cancer, open the door"

the movie is handling very well a touchy subject (cancer and coming of the death). The dialog are original, and to represent its death by a character is a a very good idea. Nothing morbid at the same time. A few character (6 people all in all), very inti mist.

Many scenes/details are metaphoric, each one of us may a his interpretation. Very subtle, I liked it very much. Very well played, especially by jean dujardin and dupontel.

Movie's duration is fine (1h27) and the end is quick but it wasn't necessary to last Long.

A good movie, very original. worth to see it. I recommend ++.
