Great directing, great acting, magnificent script.
Just way too sad. The redeeming of the characters in the end comes too late and is a little unbalanced - only that leads me to give it 8 stars.
For everyone who has enjoyed Amelie, or Big Fiss, or Mr. Nobody, this will be a great movie.
It has it all, passion, death, innocence, humor, crime, life's roughness and life's lessons, a little magic, some sad poetry and a story so strong and so original you will be able to unglue your eyes from the screen.
