think of it as of the perfect sumptuous dream of utmost elegance...
5 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

I can see why people can not praise this film - it is very hard to digest. It is set to so many beautiful classical melodies, and the world it sets into motion is just as luminous and wonderful as the music.

The most beautiful french women stay perfect through dozen childbirths, the children are all tender-hearted and dressed with utmost taste and play lovely games.. Nobody does anything else but loving each other with tenderness and softness and deepest understanding and acceptance. Everything is set in paradisaical garden and color and flowers filled rooms... It is a kind of world that we probably all dream of - with not one note of dissonance, of bad taste, of disorder, of any kind of ugliness or dirt. Except there is still death and loss and terrible pain.. and most graceful and elegant way to live through every turn of life...

Is it a Tran Anh Hung's oriental philosophy and unique artistic sensitivity translated into Western setting, or do they really exist - these perfect, subtle, fragile and prosperous families? Is it them we get a glimpse of - sometimes - on Parisian streets and elegant sea resorts? In any way - the film is extremely beautiful to watch and in the current world of terrible deficit of untainted images and characters, it is worth of the highest appreciation...
