a must see movie
21 October 2005 | by magda_katzSee all my reviews

this film was show at the Hampton Film Festival and got a standing ovation. It was uplifting and beautiful to watch. Great story based on real people. The music is unforgettable. The movie was romantic and entertaining. It reminds me of the great classics of foreign cinema. The story has twists and turns and it draws you in and can't wait to find out what will develop. Paris never looked more beautiful than in this film. I hope the music will be release because it will make a great CD. Cluade Lelouch is a master of getting the most out of his actors. The lead woman is a real find with an engaging face that the camera loves.
