Follow the rainbow, it leads to Magalie Woch on a tree
26 April 2006 | by stevekriefSee all my reviews

This may not be the greatest movie ever. It's sweetness tends sometimes to make the audience bitter. Vincent Perez does a great job for a first movie. It can remind some of Virgin suicides where some young women's feelings are so pure and strong that they will inevitably meet the only answer which doesn't disappoint : death. And in both movies, even if Morgane Moré and Kirsten Dunst have the leading roles, it's Magalie Woch (who plays friend Josiane) and Hanna Hall (Cecilia Lisbon) who leave the greatest impact, who are metaphysical. And remember Magalie's secret recipe for happiness : a bite of bread and a cherry while sitting on a tree.
