This movie is so emotional and from the very beginning,I was carried away with the sympathy and very doleful atmosphere throughout the movie. Michael Cain did a wonderful job here. He was able to maintain his character till the end. The soulful music is just right to the theme which it made the setting more captivating.The other cast were wonderful as well. After watching this movie, it makes me more reluctant to visit Paris in the near future.This is one of the great movies I have ever seen in my life. I wish there is an English version of the book where the movie was taken from.
This is a must to see movie.
