Quotes

Albert: Don't take offense, but Hanna has too much control over your boys.
Pierre Fabre: She does not.
Albert: See? You're offended.
Pierre Fabre: We raised all our children the same way, but they're not peas in a pod. Each one is different. You wouldn't know, having only one. Oh. I'm sorry. I forgot.
Albert: God took one of my children. He's not taking any more.

I Missed This One At The Theatres, But Managed To Rent It On Video
20 January 2000 | by robertvannsmithSee all my reviews

The French have been known to make several great movies, in my opinion and this it one of their bests. Georges Du Fresne's stunning performance makes you smile, as well as makes you think. The idea of getting to know yourself has been around for a long time and his character had a long way to go to getting to know himself.
