Terrific story
16 February 2003 | by PHMSee all my reviews

I advise to all the people who could see this film to do not miss it. The story gives a very good character for Jean Rochefort and the best that Guillaume Canet has ever had. I prefer to dont say anything about the story of the movie, the surprise will be greater !
