User Reviews

 
Just a highlight on a remarkable point
4 January 2001 | by elemaireSee all my reviews

Have anyone noticed that 2 actors in this movie are physics nobel prizes appearing as a delivery man and a truck driver? Georges Charpak and Pierre Gilles de Gennes they are. Pretty amazing no ? Except that it's a very funny comedy mostly based upon the real life of Pierre and overall Marie Curie, the first woman awarded with a Nobel Prize. But I think you need to know a bit about the real story to appreciate the humor.
