Life is a miracle!!
20 November 2002 | by ProudflowerWangSee all my reviews

A big family is filled with various problems,but these things are all about love.Winter vacation is coming,all of them will go to skiing.Maybe it's a chance to solve all matters...

In the end of this film,all problems are solved or solving,the point is mentioned in the letter by someone's mother---Life's a miracle. Yes,"life is a miracle,we gotta make the most of the passing moment,Gotta do our best,there'll be time enough to rest.Tell someone U love them--there always a way,and if the dead could speak I know what they would say to U & me--don't waste another day..." quoted Prefab Sprout' song--Life's a miracle.

This French film isn't very famous even though U can see many famous stars,some of my favourite French star--Gerard Lavin who acted a gloomy husband ,Jean-Hugues Anglade who acted a hysterical man,Virginie Ledoyen & Christopher Thompson who acted a teenage lovers.They are really gorgeous in this film. Eight out of ten!!
