This is a strange little film from Quebec, in that it tries to tell a story about friendship, and that's a story about the marriage of a man and a woman. The story is set in a small village where nothing happens; a small elderly couple is buried and a man looks after the grave in the evening. But the year passes, and the woman who lived there in the past, comes to an old town and she falls in love with the old man's sister. The movie then sees how that friendship is formed and what the woman goes through; and, how that changes her life. This film has some really great moments and it's not just for comedy. There are two serious scenes, and they are quite enjoyable. But overall, I think it's a good story, and I think it's a bit better than other Canadian movies, because it doesn't have a lot of scenes, it is a simple story, and it's made in a very simple way.

I'm not usually a fan of "French" films, as most of them are rather dull, with "Amelie" being a prime example. But this film, directed by Paul Verhoeven, is another great exception. The film is not boring, just a bit surreal at times, but is very funny, the humour is quite obvious in the film, the plot is quite simple and boring. But it's pretty much one of those films that will make you forget about the rest of your life. A must see.

In one of his few films to date, Francois Ozon has produced a film that will leave you speechless and in tears. It's a romantic comedy that has the perfect balance of the realistic elements and the dramatic elements and that's why it's an absolute masterpiece. The film is called "L'homme fidèle" (The girl who did the dishes) and is based on the real-life story of Annie Gorman. When her father died, she was orphaned, the only surviving daughter of a disabled alcoholic with a long history of alcohol abuse. For the next twenty years she suffered and "dashed" her way to a place where she feels like the world has given her a second chance to live a normal life. It is not a simple story with no real meaning, there are some interesting and funny moments, but what really keeps the viewer is the contrast between the normal and the extraordinary. They are almost the same person, who is an extremely talented woman who makes all her life and career her own. The contrast between her and the guy who starts life with her is so strong and well executed that you will have a hard time to find the originality and inspiration of the director's vision. It is all about maintaining this character and the emotional richness of the acting, there is no real focus on the personal life of the actors, but rather on the relationships between them. And it's clear that everyone has a good reason for their actions and choices, while everyone knows their limitations and shortcomings. It's not that simple, and that's why this movie, with its light heartedness and ironic nature, is really a gem. 8/10

Really, this is the most interesting movie I've seen in the past two years. It's just a rare movie experience, so make sure you see it in its first half. That's right, it's the first half. I don't think that is the issue, as the first half is the most important part of the movie. This movie gets a bit boring in the second half, but the first half is better than the second half. The second half is a bit slow, but it is okay. The music is wonderful, I think it is one of the best I've ever heard. Every time a song starts, it makes you jump, and it never stops. I'm not sure what is the theme here. A rebellion against the society, and also against the music industry. Is it that because of the real life events that the music industry is really bad? Or maybe because the pop music scene is getting old? Or maybe because there is this one man trying to get everyone to do music, but what he's really looking for is more than just music. I don't really know. All I know is that it is a beautiful movie that is worth seeing more than once. The music is really good, and I recommend it. 10/10

Leo has just recently finished his year of high school. He is about to head to college in the fall and his father is keen on spending time with him while he's still at home. Leo likes to cook, and his dad, along with his friends and his boyfriend (a lovable younger man) decides to cook for Leo and bring home some dishes that they cooked for a local Italian family. As Leo and his dad have trouble finding a restaurant, Leo's dad sets him up with an old, dimly-lit Italian restaurant in the area. While Leo and his dad are at the restaurant, they have a few laughs, and Leo tells his dad he wants to join them there. His dad is not keen on Leo getting involved with the older people, and won't let Leo stay over, so Leo has to come back home, and borrow money from his dad's business to pay for his food. While Leo's dad is away from home, Leo does not have his friends, and his dad makes it clear that Leo will never join the family again. The rest of the movie is Leo trying to get his dad to come back home, with two of his best friends, and the odd car chases and fights. It is at this point where Leo's dad and Leo talk about what Leo could possibly be interested in in the restaurant business, what he's proud of, and whether he should join the family. The dialogue, when it comes, is very sweet, and Leo's dad's perspective is very strong. He states that Leo's future will be decided by how he has done and his father, and Leo could be a great chef, and if he does well, his dad would be proud, or if he does not do well, his dad will not want him to join the family. Leo says that he wants to learn how to cook and take pictures, but his dad reminds him he does not know how to cook and he does not want Leo to ruin his cooking career. Leo says that he does not want to learn to cook, but his dad asks if he has any other skills, like photography or video. Leo says he doesn't, and he wishes that he did, so that he can send pictures to his friends back home. When his dad asks if Leo is ready to be there with him, Leo decides to be there with him. His dad takes Leo to a restaurant where they learn how to eat, so Leo can see how the food was prepared, and they also learn to cook the food on the restaurant's own stove. Leo then gets a job at the restaurant, and begins to learn the menu, and eventually learns how to use the equipment and skills the restaurant has, while also learning how to serve food, making it into something for the table. Leo's dad also shows Leo that he loves him, and he says that he wants to see Leo happy, so Leo promises to be there for his dad on his wedding day, and that he will make his dad proud, even if Leo was not as great of a chef as Leo is. Leo's dad then starts to have more fun with Leo, showing Leo a couple of funny ways in which to prepare food, and taking Leo to his birthday party, but Leo gets so nervous that he puts on his ice cream face and does not take the food seriously. Leo realizes that he has completely forgotten about his friends, and they leave for a drive to his friends' house, but Leo asks his dad if he can just wait at the restaurant, and if he wants Leo to come over. Leo's dad says that he will help Leo get his friends there, but Leo's dad gets distracted by one of his customers, and gets thrown out of the restaurant. Leo's dad is angry that he left Leo, and asks Leo if he needs his car, because Leo's dad has lost his license, so Leo's dad takes the keys to his car and asks Leo if he has lost his car keys, Leo says that he has lost his car keys, and takes them back, and he has already given his dad a very big thanks for letting him use his car for Leo's birthday party. Leo then starts his friend's car and heads home, and his dad wants Leo to go to his new restaurant in the area, to see what his dad is going to make there, and to see what Leo's friends have cooked. Leo accepts his dad's invitation, and meets his friends there. Leo's friends all have very different tastes in food, and what they like is a blend of Italian dishes and french cuisine. Leo does not really like the Italian food he has been brought to, and is quite taken aback by the French dishes that his friends are making. Leo is then given some delicious French dishes that his friends are making. Leo's friends are excited to see Leo, and while Leo is enjoying

This was a wonderful film. We enjoyed it immensely and were very impressed. I think it has become a popular favorite for younger viewers of the five-year-old age group. The film itself is not the type of movie you are going to get a great sense of what cinema is about from. The film itself is a little different from what we are used to and I think that is the point of it, so we can enjoy the feeling as well as the movie itself. When I first saw this film, I was totally surprised how it was done and what it was about. I think that the acting in this film is very well done, the story is clear and captivating. I especially enjoyed the chemistry between Brad and Olivia. Their relationship feels genuine and believable. I really recommend this movie and will watch it again. Thank you for reading my review and I hope you enjoy it.

This is a very nice film with beautiful actors. I was pleasantly surprised by it, and the story of the marriage of the aristocrats is really intriguing. They all look exactly like the character, not an actress, but just like a real man. The character of the noble is very entertaining. The plot has some interesting twists. It is easy to take the reader into a fantasy world that is very appealing. The parts are very well photographed and the action scenes are very well edited. If you are a fan of the movie Deux Guerre, you should take a look at this film. It is worth seeing.

Quite possibly the most beautiful film I've seen in a long time. I know it is not the award winning work of David Lynch, but the performances and tone are truly unique. The dancing and singing alone are worth seeing. Yet the best performance comes from Jesse Metcalfe who is simply enchanting as a love-sick young man with a long lost sister and a heart in search of what is needed to make life bearable. She has never been more alive, nor more believable. What a pleasure to see such a young actress give such a rare, wonderful performance. I have watched her films since she was a child and was always impressed by her ability to give a character such heart, such soul, and such sense of honesty. Finally, if this film has nothing else to say about it, I suggest it is that once you have lost your sister, there is no turning back.

First of all: a man comes from the shadows and tries to be a famous actress. Then he meets her as a patient of the hospital, and she falls in love with him. Then he loves her and tries to help her to realize her dreams and become a famous actress. Then she falls in love with him. Then he tries to stop the love. And I was so impressed by the light atmosphere of the movie, the well written and executed dialogs, the beautiful music, and the acting by the two main actors. I especially liked Natassja Kinski's character, but I think it is great and very important to also admire the excellent acting of the two actors who appeared in the movie: Thomas Sangster (Zodiac), the only guy who could have written the script, and Jurgen Prochnow (Jude). You'll love this movie if you have not seen it yet. I would recommend it to everybody.

I have never seen a film so powerful in the way it depicted the lives of ordinary people. The main character, an old man, played by Olivier Gourmet, is so charming and wise that he makes me believe he is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. I wish the story would have ended this way. The story is not only about the man who has lost his memory and needs to make a living for himself, but also about the young woman who has lost her memory and needs to make a living for herself. The ending of the film is a complete surprise, and I was left speechless, without knowing why it was so. It made me think that I had missed something in the story. It is not a movie for those who only want to see a lot of action. It is a movie that touches your heart, and makes you think about the way we live our lives. It is also a movie that will make you think about what you have to do to make your life better. It is also a movie that will make you think about what you do to make your life better. The only way to make a film that touches your heart is to make it yourself. And it is a shame that this film is not available in the U.S. because it is a must-see for everyone. If you have not seen it, please see it.

Three different "caracters" who each begin the film with different feelings and motivations towards life: one an optimistic high school student (Christophe Beckinsale) who thinks his upcoming football scholarship to the University of Notre Dame will make him a better person; another who is a successful journalist who has no talent in bedding women; and a third man who is being treated for cancer of the prostate. The three men are all desperately trying to decide which of them is more valuable: life or money. Each character has three different, contradictory answers. Beckinsale's "lowlife" develops a passion for football while Biondini's sex-crazed ex-policeman develops a very different path towards "life". As the film plays out, one can always tell which character is doing what he or she thinks best, and their path in life will change accordingly. This is by no means a perfect movie, but the execution is done very well. Like all good movies, there are moments that are just plain boring. It's just that the characters feel completely random at times and for no good reason. Even though this doesn't seem to be as great of a movie as some of the critics make it out to be, it's a very enjoyable movie that has much to offer. 8/10

I think we could all agree on this much. La Femme Nikita (A Flandre du temps, by far, the better movie) is a fairly successful movie from France in the 1980's. The plot involves a young man and woman who spend a year on a caravan route. There are two things that really stands out about the movie. Firstly, its all extremely well made and secondly, its a very original and heartfelt film. While the main theme is love, it really is about both life and the road. It isn't always a happy one. It does touch on the consequences of living your life the wrong way and therefore, does not ignore the root causes of most of your problems. The thing is, life is not all roses and butterflies. The people that we love, when they die, are going to be lost, as is the peace of the world around them. If you have the ability, spend a few days, stop for a while, and then make a journey with them. They will never be the same.

In "L'homme fidèle", the photography, editing and cinematography were just to good. Although I like Jean-Pierre Jeunet's "Love, and had no problem to watching it, but didn't like to see, my dear colleague Jose Carreiro, is my second favorite, but also this film, which I prefer. That said, I prefer "L'homme fidèle" to "Love", but "Love" was better for me. The film's lightness is the genius of the director. This film has two styles. First of all, it's a comedy. And in that respect, it's a perfect comedy. The first half of the film is so light, you will laugh so hard, you'll cry, you'll be in tears. And the second half of the film is so heavy, that's why it's very difficult to be in tears. And that's exactly how the story is. The second half of the film has a tremendous sadness, like that of the first half. But this film is full of funny moments. I can tell that the camera is very good. The "L'homme fidèle" is a very beautiful film. A very good film, and if you are a Jean-Pierre Jeunet fan, watch this one, but if you're not, forget about it. Because this is just not an easy film to watch.

I don't normally read these comments and I don't usually go to reviews. But in this case, I saw the reviews here and I wanted to comment. This film is definitely different from anything else you have seen before. The film is light hearted and more like a comedy than a thriller. The film is about a jilted lover trying to find his way and the loss of his girlfriend. But the film is also about people coming to terms with life and finding it a little easier and less painful. This is a character driven film and it's about how the person you love would feel if he/she lost their life partner. For the average filmgoer, the ending is predictable, but the character's journey is surprising. It's a rare film that is truly worth seeing.

I just finished watching this movie and I have to say that it was an absolute treat. I loved it and I loved the movie. The music was amazing and the story was great. I thought that the characters were so interesting and I loved how the characters interacted. I loved the story and the characters. I thought that the movie was great. I thought that it was a very original movie. I thought that it was great and I think that everyone should see it. I would recommend it to everyone.

I just saw this movie tonight, and I'm not a big fan of the older pictures. I liked this movie, it was a pretty good movie, it had it's flaws, but I really liked it. This movie was more realistic than many older movies and it wasn't all about romance. There was a lot of emotion and heartbreak in this movie. The characters were pretty realistic. I would recommend it to people who like romantic comedies and movies with little to no violence. 8/10.

The film is set in the middle of the night, with a killer on the loose. The killers are mainly all male, and the victim is a woman. It's not a happy film, it's not a happy film, but it's a really good film, and I'd recommend it to anyone. It's very different to what you might expect, but if you're into a film that's different, this is a film for you.
