An amazing and dreamy film! Guillaume Canet and Marion Cotillard make such a wonderful and cute couple. The story is so unique and lovely! Although the concept of the film sounds so “done-to-death”, the French spin on the age-old concept of love is always refreshing and breathtaking!
Quite frankly, one of my favorite films!
As Julien Jeanvier quoted it best: “Pure, raw, explosive pleasure! Better than drugs, better than smack! Better than a dope-coke-crack-fix-shit-shoot-sniff-ganja-marijuana-blotter-acid-ecstasy! Better than sex, head, 69, orgies, masturbation, tantrism, Kama Sutra or Thai doggy-style! Better than banana milkshakes! Better than George Lucas’s trilogy, the muppets and 2001! Better than Emma Peel, Marilyn, Lara Croft and Cindy Crawford’s beauty mark! Better than the B-side to Abbey Road, Jimmy Hendrix and the first man on the moon! Space Mountain, Santa Claus, Bill Gates’ fortune, the Dalai Lama, Lazarus raised from the dead! Schwarzenegger’s testosterone shots, Pam Anderson’s lips! Woodstock, raves… Better than Sade, Rimbaud, Morrison and Castaneda! Better than freedom, better than life!”
I can’t say I really related to any of the characters, but the way they viewed love is something I could relate to.
The film in many ways is similar to the 2001 French film, Amelie. So if you enjoyed that film, I highly recommend this film!
