Here is a movie that is pure artistic delight in every way. What a pity that some people do not see the depth and purpose of this movie. I see people complaining about its lack of "realism". Well it is precisely the absence of "realism" and the magical aura that makes this movie so real and so touching. This movie is a enchanting and captivating "tale" that plays very delicately with important topics such as loneliness and love. And the softness of its music together with the sublime poetry of the songs' words are used masterfully to touch our hearts. Yes, one has to understand French to appreciate the sublime poetry of the songs. I am not surprised that the harshest critics are those who do not speak French. From the beginning to the end I was totally absorbed, captivated, deeply moved and entertained by this fabulous movie, the kind of gem that is rarely seen. So, if you have an artistic sensitive soul you will love it. Trust me.
