Storyline

Ilva runs her stepfather's Eden Palace cinema in wartime Paris against a background of Resistance activities, the frequent sight of less fortunate Parisians being shipped east in cattle-trains and, later, the impact of the D-Day landings. Over time a number of other lives intersect with hers, including a German officer and then two American servicemen. A post-war shooting comes to dominate her story along, perhaps surprisingly, with cinema itself. Written by J-26

Not a film critique but a short report of a viewer feelings
22 March 2020 | by gvdimaSee all my reviews

Aiming to be a complex story of the life complexity ended up in a series of clichees , sometimes forced, sometimes too easy- but then again: what is lije after all, when eavery and each of us are unique in a way? Seeing the movie 10 years after first release the effect of not being a modern one is augmented. However the story seen now in this not modern circumstances add to its credibility- like a docu drama. Not a visual masterpiece that I would like to see again but it let me with the sense of "this story was really and trully happened" . In terms of where life could lead one that follows heart and instincts, one that love life and self rather than others and social conventions.
