  • hubertguillaud's rating of the film The Sense of Wonder

    Le goût des merveilles pourrait être un piètre téléfilm s'il n'était sublimé par la renversante prestation de Benjamin Lavernhe en autiste solaire et attachant. Certes, l'ensemble demeure candide et prévisible, mais la sensibilité de la réalisation nous extirpe des lourdeurs de la comédie romantique habituelle. Lumineux, sincère, sans être trop racoleur. C'est devenu rare.
