One of my favorite movies
21 October 2011 | by davidrushton-192-700212See all my reviews

Anyone who does not love this movie knows nothing of romance. The one poor actor I felt was the movie director and that was probably due to his lack of knowledge of English. All others played wonderful roles. The scenes of Paris are magical and the introduction to French (Parisian) life is very educational. I remember particularly the game of Boules.In fact I tried to find such a game while in the south of France for two weeks last month, based on what I learned from this great movie.

I have not seen this movie in more than ten years and I was searching for it when I came across this. Sure hope I can find a place to download it soon.
