A romantic comedy that is iridescent with French flair
I loved the magic that the actors brought to their roles, the theme music, the intelligence of the script, in short, everything about it! The theme that of the 'inaccessible' stunningly beautiful, drop-dead gorgeous lady who simply has to glance at a guy to make him fall in love with her - now that's an experience that every male has had. Many of us simply steer clear of such females as they break our hearts as easily as some will pull the wings off birds, as they flit from male to male, savouring and enjoying the enormous power that they have.
I loved that the script-writer actually got inside the head of the beauty and we experienced some of her angst as she tried to find the man who will love her for the rest of his life and whom she can similarly love. Women like these (of all cultures) are often rather remote and aloof for most males.
But in this movie, she came alive! It is, of course, highly recommended.
