It's an amazing tender drama with a touch of thriller. The story is one of the best stories about true love without any exaggerated efforts and flows nicely. It's slow-paced and so simple yet so touching and full of emotions. Performances are all great. Camerawork is awesome with nice sceneries. It's one of the very best movies I saw this year. Im glad France chose it as its official candidate to the Oscars and I really hope it'll get its deserved nomination. Highly recommended.
