Beautiful
29 October 2003 | by nicoteenagerSee all my reviews

I saw this film years ago when it was first released and fell madly in love with it. Now over 10 years later I just have to say what a beautiful film it is... still.

Watch this film, life really is too short not to.

Why this movie doesn't exist on DVD stuns me, my 9 year old VHS copy is slowly dying out. Yves Montand could not have left a better swan song.

Just beautiful.
