Meditative euro-paced elagance. 7.6
25 July 2019 | by BobbyGutsSee all my reviews

Seen this on film at the new beverly and it was a treat. The first burglary scene was delightful and cute and then there were some late 60's thematic pleasantries. The soundtrack (Which i've made a note to get ahold of) made this movie visually melodic; such as-The opening scene, The ski-ing scene & The dance scene.

I'd watch it again to meditate on the elegance it celebrates so well.
