Nothing really that we haven't seen (a thousand times) before, especially in the second part. And this does not mean that it is a bad film but this "Amelie in Iceland", with supposedly funny dialogues and few ideas on how to stage them, offers too little to care about. Even the script that won him the César looks pretty weak. Boy meets girl allright, but where is the added value here ? Film tourism.
A wonderful, graceful and witty film set in France and Iceland. The simple story of a man who 'madly' falls in love with a woman and follows her to unknown land. The two lead are perfect, as are all the supporting actors. With this perfect dose of magic to enchant the audience (and the superb Iceland landscape)
