A Good Movie by Itself.
15 May 2003 | by CecileRaySee all my reviews

Surely professionals will say bad things about this film. Do not listen to them. This a GOOD movie. The one you like to see with all your family, you talk about for hours with your children. The one who is worth to see on wide screen, and will be rediscovered while seeing on DVD. The one which reborns your childhood. Of course everybody will compare it to the 50's one, with Gina and Gerard. But this one is good by itself ! Vincent Perez is amazing, everything he can do without special effects help is great. Penelope Cruz is full of emotion. Other actors are interesting, when you know what they usually do in french movies. Rated it 8.
