Better than expected but...
21 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect this movie to be so good considering the average rating on IMDb. UN BAISER PAPILLON is a sweet and touching picture, very well made. It is quite enjoyable if your understand French or have access to a good subtitled version. You might even say it is a feel-good story despite the numerous conflicts showing up in the family involved here, in addition to the lethal disease of the main character.

My only problem is with the use of Angelo Badalamenti's folk-rooted music from a the very successful American movie, A STRAIGHT STORY, along with many classical excerpts from a few Vivaldi's concertos and pop songs. You have the feeling that the director used the Badalamenti's stuff as the main theme to temp-track her flick and that she finally decided to license it. A bit lazy solution, or perhaps a matter of budget restrictions, because I am sure there are numerous French composers who could have provided and equally fine original score, and perhaps a more appropriate one.
