Great romance regardless to physical heights
1 November 2019 | by Bad-Good-GreatSee all my reviews

If a short guy could fall for a taller woman, why tall woman could not fall for a short guy, as long as he's romantic, with strong sense of humor, a big heart, a charmer in his own way and his height? But of course, the short guy who falls for a tall beautiful woman, his first and must have requirement is, well, he must be rich, not just rich, but must be very rich, and social status must also quite recognizable to the general public. That, is the only way to make the tall beauty to at least allow you come near. Without enough dough, there's no way to approach a beautiful tall woman. Tom Cruise, Keith Urban, Sylvester Stallone, many short guys got no difficulty to make women fall for him in the first place, their later divorces or separations got nothing to do with their natural heights; there were private personal reasons caused the irrevocable and un-salvageable situations, but the heights of the men or husbands would not be the major reason.

I noticed a reviewer, ElMaruecan8231, who wrote a review on December 2017 and hatefully attack this movie that he admitted he wrote his review but actually didn't even bother to watch. And he slandered this movie and swear to boycott it. I don't know what's wrong with this guy. It seems that he got the same problems as Donald Trump, so obnoxious and so arrogantly self-righteous and self-important to attack a movie that he didn't even actually see it. This movie is as the "Fake News" to POTUS. A reviewer so pompously to attack a movie he didn't even watch is a new phase that imdb might have to deal with; it's no better than those fake reviews.

This movie is fun and well made. Jean Dujardin is a genius level actor and an irresistible charmer. I just don't know how the movie makers made him look so short all the way through, put him in one of the "Gulliver's Travels" situation - into a land of giants. Virginie Efira, what a lovely beauty and likable actor. If there's only one guy, a shorty, fell for her, the world must be deadly wrong.
