Remembering Honeymoon
18 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

I was in my first wedding anniversary when we decided to watch this movie and remember our honeymoon in Paris. The french atmosphere is perfect, and the actors very good. The way of acting is different from the american way.

The movie is almost happened in the interior of an apartment. Very intimate. The same directrix was invited to direct the american remake. It wasn't the same as the original.
