Fantastic lovable actress
11 January 2000 | by orakioSee all my reviews

This movie wouldn't be the same, and it wouldn't be so good either, without the presence of a marvelous "fragile" actress named Isabelle Carre. She just changes the movie, with her natural way of speaking (very charming), her spontaneity, her beauty ! Waouuu, probably this is the first time I "fell in love" with a fictional character.

Anyway, she really performs her role brilliantly, and that's the reason why you should at least take a look at this movie, just for Isabelle Carre.
