Romy, I love you
22 November 2006 | by obuscaSee all my reviews

I want repeat: This movie is really a great one, mostly because of the great performance of Romy Schneider. She looks incredibly beautiful and acts wonderful. I also found the soundtrack very good, there are some excellent songs contained. Too bad there isn't a soundtrack album available, it would be really worth it!! The directing is also very good, I found the various camera movements and angles really well done. So, a DVD and Soundtrack album release would be really appreciated!

thanks to Lidercs from Austria

I accurately think of this same form and would like, if possible, to repeat the text of Lidercs. This film was very important for me. It had a very special music, (it enters as much) that I do not obtain to locate.
