This movie represents the best of good French cinema.
A real good movie goes beyond budget, special effects, sex and all those "musts" in the HOLLYWOOD formula. A good movie is the one that it's own idea is sufficiently original and strong to live by itself. The script is Everything. If it is natural, "believable", (doesn't matter if it's fiction) and touches spectators hearts, is enough to be a success. That's all about good French cinema. Like this beautiful movie that honors too the main goal of this industry: to entertain and to conquer peoples hearts.
