Grande Classe
26 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

25 years old, sober camera-work and set in and around Paris that we don't really get to see, and yet this is a pure gem. Actors that don't act but are their characters, with Piccoli amazing as ever, and a way too brief an appearance of Romy Schneider -for about ten minutes- that will be truely unforgettable for any movie-lover. A gripping story too, with a political undercurrent that seems to be of every day. A marvelous film, surely not to be missed !!
