For his film, Antoine Blossier wanted the music to be "symphonic and thematic, like the great French compositions like those of Michel Legrand or Vladimir Cosma, while absorbing the sounds of John Williams and Danny Elfman". He relies on Romaric Laurence, his faithful composer of all his feature films. The latter worked with the women of the Choir of Radio France at the studio of the Seine in Paris and the Little Singers at the wooden cross to use their angelic voice in the film. See more »
Having grown up with the caricature, and the written novel, after the multiple chapters of stories and adventures between Mr. Vitali and Remi, I can say that the film was too short, the Mr. Vitali lacked a little more harshness in the character, although the expression of the child that makes remi is correct could be better more from him ,Remi have to much to give. That feeling of empathy to their sad eventualities as it is the novel, was something that I lack in this film, it is achieved in a certain way an empathy but for those who read and grow up with that story, it leaves you with a feeling of emptiness, it's fine but not ...
the photography is quite pleasant in the film, there is no doubt that the locations were successful, although generations that had never heard of Remi, feel a pity for the character, but to be honest needed much more tragedy and a little more film . you get to the end so fast, and at the end of the plot that leaves you with I want more, I think the right thing would have been a trilogy, in the best of cases the classic part 1 and 2, so that the story had more impact and a better outcome of the plot.
It is always nice to pick up things from childhood.
