the hardest movie to find- you'd be lucky to see it somewhere
9 April 2004 | by evangelineSee all my reviews

this film is impossible to find...which is too bad because I would absolutely love to see it again. I saw it when I was 13 years old and it made such an impression that I read Marques's book and here I am 17 years later still trying to find it! It is romantic, dreamy and a real pleasure to watch. Anthony Delon, Rupert Everett and Ornella Muti deliver a truly unforgettable story.

If anyone know where I can get a copy- see it first and then PLEASE let me know where I can get one!
