A true romance

So brilliant.

I am not a french romance films lover, I prefer hard and brutal crime flicks. But this film is very amazing, brilliant, smart and so awesome, in terms of acting. I don't really like Cluzet, he annoys me, but he is nevertheless a great actor, and not so Young. He started in the early eighties, so did Sophie Marceau, who is also here at her peak. She has never been so beautiful. At nearly fifty years old, she seems twenty years younger. I think she is one of the most gorgeous actress in the world. And not because she is french...

The story itself is the oldest scheme in the world: a man meets a woman. But it is so beautifully made. With a touch of sweet bitterness.

A little masterpiece for this kind of topic.
