Storyline

Valentin is a criminal mastermind, but his exploits don't prove much in the way of satisfaction. Thus, he sets out on a one-man sailing trip around the world in a last attempt at finding meaning in his life. Meanwhile, in Morocco, a burned-out jazz singer named Jane is trying to forget a fizzled love affair. And so begins the journey of these two lost souls who are destined to cross paths.

Thumbs Up
3 June 2002 | by garageplanetSee all my reviews

the acting by the cast in "and now... ladies and gentlemen" - both by renowned actors like Jeremy Irons as well as others novice to this Art, like Patricia Kaas- is beautiful, very deeply felt. I was moved by the expression in these two actor's eyes. But one mustn't consider and rate acting by itself in Lelouch movies, as it is the unity of all skills and feelings that make his work so profound. The acting, directing, photography, music... they make up a story, a story that could be yours, mine, anyone's story. That's why it always hits home.

In my opinion, this movie deserves a second viewing, as it is filled with allusions, metaphors, symbols of all kinds and incredible photographic beauty
