Great movie...
21 August 2017 | by michaeltetterooSee all my reviews

Saw this on a long haul flight: beautiful love story, well directed and put together. In essence it is the story of a couple from their acquaintance till death. Great fun, laughs and tears! It also takes you through the different phases historically and especially in France - as I grew up there, the familiarity might be somewhat biased - so really enjoyed it. Absolute recommendation to see this movie!
