I'm happy to see this movie finally get a theatrical release. As a film, I think it was quite superb. The acting is superb, the direction is superb. The story is a bit unconventional and a bit loose, but nevertheless very interesting and absorbing. The whole experience is simply fantastic. The movie has a great tension, of course, as we don't know if the whole is going to go horribly wrong or well. Some of the actors were more than great, and I hope they will be remembered for many years to come. But, after all, the real hero of the movie is the camera, and the wonderful way that Jean-Marc Vallee used it. I've seen many bad movies that had great camera work, but it doesn't matter. This movie is more than just a camera. It's a powerful tool of art.

The future is a horrible place, and this film is about a young boy who knows this. 'World' is an astonishingly beautiful film, as it shows the terrifying possibility of mankind's future, while also depicting the joy of happiness. I really enjoyed this film, and would recommend it to anyone with a strong interest in world politics, as well as those with a love for music, art, and beautiful films. I'm sure everyone will be affected by this film, and have the opportunity to really think about their own lives.

This film is the kind of film you will look back on with fascination, wonder and amazement. I like to think of it as the story of a childhood that was lost and is now found. It's a fascinating story and the way in which the story is told is so intense and moving that it will go down as one of the great films of all time. Les clercs does so many things right. It is a charming, moving and beautiful film. There is nothing less than perfect about this movie. The performances by Pascale and Sorel are perfect and perfectly match the characters of their characters. There is an extraordinary musical score, the direction is perfect and this film is at the very top of my list of favorite films. It is a film that is, simply put, very beautiful.

The movie is not only a love story, but also a deep portrait of the life of a jazz musician. The dialogue is simple yet deep, the acting is wonderful, and the movie is very realistic. The way the movie portrays the life of John Lydon is a lesson in how to portray a character in a movie. His death and his rebirth are tragic, yet also very realistic. I truly enjoyed this movie and recommend it to everyone.

This movie is not for everyone, but I think it's a must see for anybody who is a lover of great cinema. It's a love story with a twist. The end is very powerful and makes you think about your own life, or the life of the people around you. This is a movie for all people. I think it has many good points for the people who are interested in great cinema. I'd give it a 10/10.

It seems that most critics seem to be nitpicking this film. I was disappointed in the film, however, because it has all the elements of a great film: music, acting, camera work, etc. To those who say it is "too 'French', that is a French expression, not the usual French taste for English films," I respectfully disagree. I say it is more common to watch this film in English, then French. It is a film that should not be dismissed because of its French origins. I don't think that this film deserves the "ban" it has received from critics and the movie business.

I would recommend this film to anyone who's ever felt the need to come to terms with the depths of their own soul. Love, life, death, sexual experience, suicide. It's all here. The director speaks the truth about how we live and who we are. From the time of his childhood to the present, the viewer is in a wonderful and unique world. He was born in 1958 in a ghetto in France. As a young man he was radicalized by what he saw in the world. There was no other explanation for his passionate and poetic life than that of the French artist who died in 1974. "Dieu Vague" was a poet who lived in a great boredom of his own, without hope, without something to believe in, without any direction. He was free to express what he wanted without being limited by any rules, by any human values. In his life he didn't need to come to terms with anything that he perceived to be negative. His life was a living nightmare. He was the most extreme of individuals, the most eccentric, the most eccentric, the most intense. In his work he had a lot of support. The gay and bisexual community was divided in two. Some of them said they were proud of his work and thought it was important. The other side thought it was vulgar, that it was so dangerous to make the 's' and 'o' so large that it was impossible to deal with them in a rational manner. I liked his work, because it's not just the psychological picture. It's also the way he makes love, which is not just sexual, but emotional. That's why his works are quite hard to find in our society. The film shows the difficulty of coming to terms with the most important element in life, and the difficulty of putting it into words. I must say that I'm not religious but this is a very powerful film and I recommend it to anyone who wants to have a good and very difficult time with themselves.

I am a great fan of both Eunice D. and Claude Alou. Although I found the film to be very accurate to their lives, I have always enjoyed watching them together on screen. I am glad to see a film that doesn't take sides. While the subject of the film is a very poignant one, the story never swings from being factual to dramatic. The film and the acting are superb. The film touches on real historical events and shows how the events were used by the Parisian and Algerian Resistance in the 1960s and 1970s. The acting of the two leads, especially Eunice D., is remarkable. The only minor quibble is that the film is filmed in the style of an old film. The cinematography is excellent and there is some nice cinematography. The soundtrack is nice, but nothing memorable. In conclusion, a fantastic film that was important in France in the 1950s and '60s. I found it to be a sad look at a time in France when things were much more peaceful.

Chronique De La Tour is the best French film I've seen in a while, and the best French film I've seen in a decade. If I had to compare it to any other, I would say that the best film would be Le Carrefour de la Musique, but that film has more scenes. But it's not that a really good film should be compared to any other, but a film should be compared to other films. And Chronique De La Tour is very good, and very unique. The first time I saw it, I thought I was going to get bored, but I still loved it, I love it and it's very beautiful. It's a story of love and loss and a story that should be told and that is told beautifully. The plot is not the best, and the acting isn't great, but the acting is very good. The story is very poetic and it really makes the viewer think about life, love, and death. The story is very well told and I really felt something for the characters, and I love it.

This movie is a personal favorite of mine. I grew up in Bordeaux, in southern France. I read a book by the same name in school and thought that the title was very close to the sound of the theme of the movie. I finally found the book at home and I was blown away. The book is about the country of Bordeaux and about how people perceive the musical. I found that the themes are similar to those of the movie. The title, "The Sea", fits the mood of the movie, as well as the title "L'avocat". I have learned a lot from this movie and it is one of my favorite movies. I recommend this movie to everyone.

There is something of a tradition of this kind of film in France, the whole "non-fiction" style. I remember when it first came out (the original version) with Jean-Pierre Melville and Fanny Ardant. I was too young to watch it then, but it was the best of the lot. I saw it again on television. I remembered the characters in the story, and how they moved around, and in the end I realized what I had missed all along. I found it again, and I realized that this was the story of the musical family, and the characters, and how they became a musical family. It was a wonderful story. I liked it better the second time I saw it, and I got the soundtrack. I still like it, and I have a lot of it. I think it is a very nice film, with very good performances, and a great soundtrack. It is not for everyone, but it is very good.

First of all, this movie was very well made. I think the director could have gone further with this movie, but that's not a big problem. Second, this movie is based on the true story of the mysterious death of a young singer. As a matter of fact, the movie is a little bit of a modern-day version of "La Vie Boheme" or "The Thief and the Cobbler", because the story is based on the same fact. The only thing that is different is that the movie has two female leads, one of them is really hot and I think that she deserves to be in the movie more. The other one, with the same name as in the movie, is a little bit boring but she is not that bad. This movie is a must-see for people who are into movies with a plot. All in all, it is a very good movie, and if you like movie, you should check this one out.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet is a French filmmaker who knows how to make cinema with subtlety. I love his films, not because they are "spoilers", but because they convey messages and make the viewer think. The first film that I ever saw in this vein was "Yours, Mine and Ours" (1961), a film that tells the story of a French boy who comes to America to play soccer with his friends. He ends up being kidnapped by the gang that runs a prostitution ring. It is a disturbing story, but one that has a powerful message: "What if I was in your shoes? Would I have the same thoughts? Would I be as violent?" The film is still very much relevant today. When I first saw it, I thought it was a great film, but I never thought that it was so effective and so true. The film is not without its flaws. The story is not particularly compelling. The film is too long. The cast is not particularly impressive. But the message of the film is powerful and it's a film that should be remembered for a long time. I would recommend it to anyone who has a good heart.

I had seen this movie years ago and forgot about it, then on my second viewing, I decided to see it again. It was a great movie, it had a great cast, it had great acting and beautiful scenes. The story was very touching. It was a different style than most romantic movies. I really liked it, and it is very true to life and it is the true story of a real person. It is great for all the lovers of music, especially French, but even for people who don't know French.

There is no word in English for 'The Gift' but when the film was released in France, the word was translated as 'The Piano'. The story of a piano teacher who finds a young girl singing a tune, but who can not control her voice, so she becomes an instrument in the hands of her students. This film is a classic example of the post-war 'we'll all be poor one day' period in film. It is not a film for kids, the teacher is not an angel, the class is not a 'normal' one, but instead the teacher is in the midst of his or her own problems. It's a must see.

All the critics seem to love this film. It is an intelligent and moving film. I am not familiar with the French language, so I cannot comment on the language and script. However, the film is indeed a work of art and an example of the Italian cinema, although it is too slow at times and the cinematography is just OK. I have seen it twice. In the first one, I thought I could understand the French and the English dialogue. I was wrong. The second time I saw the film, I was able to understand the French dialogue. The script is very good, the acting is just fine and the music is great. It is a very intelligent film and it is a must see. I give it an 8 out of 10.

This film is almost as long as a novel, but it has a lot of great scenes and sequences. I saw it at the L.A. Film Festival. The director, Michel Blanc, did a very good job at adapting his novel to the screen. One of the things that I particularly liked was the way he captures the atmosphere and mood of the French countryside. I also liked the way the director has chosen to tell the story through a succession of "eyes". I was very happy with this film and would recommend it to anyone who is into this kind of cinema.

So, they had the great opportunity to make a film about the family that somehow evokes feelings of jealousy, pride, and solidarity. Which is no small feat. And when you have such great talents involved in a project like this, it is not a bad thing to make it even better. All in all, this is a film that should be seen by all who care about the arts, and maybe a little for those who just want to see something that makes them think. By the way, it was also nominated for a couple of Oscars. The acting is superb, and the story is really well written. Don't miss this film. I give it a 10.

a singularly fine work of art. a first class accomplishment. a film that should be viewed by the entire world. a piece of art that is pure love. a film that is a true embodiment of what art should be. a film that will stand the test of time. a film that will leave you with a lasting impression.

This is a movie about a young boy who loves to sing and write songs, but who is unable to express himself and is left to his own devices to express his feelings. The movie is a very complex one, with many plot twists and layers of meaning, and this is what I like about it: there is a lot of layers, and each one of them is interesting. The story of this boy is very interesting, and I think that this movie should be watched by anyone who likes a good movie with a little bit of story, and if you are interested in learning about human emotions, you should definitely watch this movie.

I really enjoyed this movie. It's a great piece of work. It is the story of a young man who is struggling with his sexuality, but with the help of his friends, he is able to overcome the issues. The characters are interesting and all of them have their own story to tell. I found this movie very entertaining. It has some very good music and excellent cinematography. It's a movie that you should see. It will make you think about life and about love. This movie is great. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of the works of Jean-Luc Godard.

In her debut film, actress Audrey Tautou plays the singer Marie-Pierre Haddad, who, at the age of 12, went through a change of heart and decided to write a song about her own son, Noel. While writing, she found that her son was the same age as Noel, which was only seven. She tries to find his brother, but is told that he is no longer alive, and it is now up to her to find him. Eventually she does find him, and becomes a famous pop star. During the film, she gets along with two other characters who are her "boys" - Noel's older brother, and her childhood friend. The film has a good amount of detail on the life of the singer, and her many other problems and tribulations. This is not a slow film, and I found it to be quite interesting. I don't know how it has won so many Oscars, but I guess it has made the movie-goer in all of us who have known this star a little happier.

For a relatively new director, it is very difficult to achieve what Alain Resnais did with his film "La Femme en Flandre". It is a wonderful film that stands on its own without any commercial backing and also without any great fanfare. It is an utterly brilliant film, about a woman who is a really terrible singer, and who is forced to work with a jazz band and a husband who just doesn't understand her. The music is played by a jazz musician who is extremely talented, but he can't play as well as she can, and he makes her do things she doesn't want to do. And she's not a very happy woman. The film is a great film, and it deserves to be seen. If you have any interest in the history of jazz, music, or in music in general, you should see this film. It is not a film for everyone, but for those who like that type of film, it is a great film.

Marcel is an illegal immigrant who dreams of making it in the big city, in order to support his mother, who is disabled by an accident. In order to make money, he goes on a tour of the city's beautiful venues, as a way of making ends meet. He is scorned by the restaurant owner, who has a heart of gold, and has a host of other patrons, who welcome him with open arms. It is not long before Marcel discovers his true calling in life: performing in the top hotels of Paris, performing in nightclubs and singing at the top bars. Marcel meets Irene, a beautiful and thoughtful singer who believes in his talent and offers him a place in her band. He is quickly drawn into the energy and mystery of this extraordinary French band, and in the process learns a lot about himself and others. The most surprising thing is that this is a movie that is all about an illegal immigrant, and no one in the film is American or European. It is a rich movie, with a great soundtrack, some real surprises, and some true surprises. It is also a movie that gets you to look at the world from a different perspective. If you are willing to go on a journey of discovery, a good movie is one that gets you thinking. It will inspire you and make you think about life and the world. It is about a man who becomes something more than a dancer, or a singer, or a dancer, or a singer. It is about a man who becomes a star, and more. It is about a movie that will leave you talking for days. It is about a film that will help you to see the world from a different perspective. And, if you are able to have a little empathy for the people in this movie, it will be a movie that you will treasure. You will be swept away by this movie, and you will be looking back at it years after it has faded from memory. The characters are so well developed, and the movie is so well made that I would be hard pressed to think of another movie that has made me this deeply emotional.

I didn't really expect much when I went to see this film, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It's a very entertaining movie, with a great soundtrack and excellent performances by the entire cast. It's certainly not a film for everyone, but if you're not one of those people who get overly emotional at the thought of a good movie, then this is definitely worth seeing. I've seen some people say that this is "too French" and I don't agree. I think it's a very interesting film and one that's a must see. If you want to see a film with a great French actor in it, then this is the one.

Some of the scenes that seem to have been cut out are best left alone and most of the scenes that were cut are still really good. The singing, dancing, the art direction, the music. They are all amazing. You really feel that you are at a concert in a movie theater in Paris. The only cut scenes that are left in are the final credits, but even then it is still fantastic. It's a very personal movie and there are so many emotions that it is almost impossible to describe. A must-see!

This is a French film, but the story is English and the cast is English. That's really all that matters. It's an adaptation of a book by William Shakespeare and it tells the story of how a young man returns to his hometown to be near his mother. The film is shot in black and white and is the most stylized of all the films that I have seen. It is visually beautiful and the sets and costumes are gorgeous. I have to admit that I have seen the film several times and I have not seen it on TV or in the theaters for a long time. I never really got it when I was a kid, but I have finally seen it. It's a very good film that is not your typical film. It is very artistic and almost a dream like film. There is something in it that I have not seen in any other film. It is a rare film that I have seen that has the same effect on me as it has on others. I think it is a film that everyone should see. I don't think it is that good of a film, but I think it is good. It is beautiful and I have to admit that I don't think it is a great film, but I think it is very good. I rate it 8/10.

Monsieur is a magical tale of love, hate and revenge. A story of love, hate and revenge, in which we see a "suicide pact" between two men. The film shows that even in the most unlikely circumstances, love and hatred can result in violence. This movie does not shy away from portraying the darker sides of human nature, and it is a must-see film for any movie fan.

Janet photo

A good movie. Great music, excellent. and, most of all, a great French film. Its one of my favourite movies and I recommend it to everyone. The main character (Alain Delon) is a guy, who doesn't want to lose his job, but also doesn't want to be a loser. There are also other characters, who have a lot of problems with themselves. And they are suffering from a lot of problems, too. If you're French and you want to see a great movie, this is the one. Its a great movie.

If you are a fan of French cinema, I highly recommend you watch this film. Its something that should be seen in a cinema, not on the big screen. The story is told in a way that is refreshingly different from the usual Hollywood formula, and the film is a real treat. It is not simply a movie, but a real exploration of life, love, and the meaning of life. It is also a perfect way to tell the story of a man's love for his country. It has a very simple plot, but is told in a way that is really beautiful. The acting in the film is truly amazing. The performance of the two leads is incredible, and the actors playing the various characters are also magnificent. It is a real treat to see these two performances and see how they did it. They are simply magnificent, and the story of the relationship between the two leads is told in such a way that you can not help but fall in love with it. The photography is stunning, and the editing is also great. If you are a fan of French cinema, this is a film that should be seen.

Just in case you hadn't heard, by now we have all but been converted to the absolute mystique of this film. The story of this movie, like the wonderful story of "Jeanne Dielman", is interwoven with images of human nature and its importance in the modern world. I believe that this film is the first "real" film I have seen, a film that stands the test of time. The film works both as a story and as a documentary. I think it is important for us to know that there is no separation between a story and a documentary. We are taught to "trust the movie". We are taught to judge a film by its rating. Yet, even when we are not watching a film, we can still see a film in the images and the meanings that the film passes. We can make comparisons, we can feel what the movie is trying to tell us. What is so wonderful about this film is that it is in all honesty a story. It is not a film for a student, not a film to be analyzed and thought over, not a film for the average viewer. What makes the film wonderful is that it is about so many things, and you can watch it without knowing what the story is about. The story is simply about a young girl with a tragic past, a woman who struggles with her responsibilities in the world and decides to take care of her mother, the end result is a beautiful film with a powerful message. You will be brought into the world of love and loss, you will feel that the film is telling the story of these two women, a story of a woman's life and the complicated, intertwined emotions that go with it. After seeing the film, I would recommend it to anyone who is curious about the story of love, and how it affects everyone. The story is true, the film is a true story. It is a testament to the power of the human spirit.

I think that this film was a masterpiece. Its visuals and music matched it perfectly, and in my opinion it was the best film of 2007. The acting was superb, the directing and editing were excellent, and I don't know what it was, but the music was just perfect. The film was unique, and I can't believe that there were no sequels to this film. This film was the best movie of 2007, and I hope it gets a lot of recognition from people. I don't understand why people hated this movie so much. I think that it was a wonderful movie, and I hope that people like it.

Like the last couple of films of French director Luc Besson, L'Étang du mal has a distinct French style. The whole story is set in a restaurant and the most interesting thing is the way it is done. We see the main characters of the film talking to each other and we can tell the film is done by Luc Besson and it looks like the director is talking to the actors to get the most out of the characters. You can feel the conversation with the actors. The film is very slow and you really have to pay attention. However, I didn't really enjoy the film at all. It's not that I didn't like it, but I didn't care. I found it boring. The film looks beautiful and the whole film is shot in the very beautiful way. The film is very romantic and it has a lot of sex. The sex is shown in a very nice way. The sex scenes are very erotic and the film is very erotic. It's a very good film but I didn't like it. I think the film is good but I didn't like it. I think the film is a little bit boring. The film is very slow and I don't think I would recommend it.

Perhaps it was the lack of any kind of music, or perhaps it was the fact that the movie had no music. Regardless, the movie was done in a style that's very difficult to find in movies today. It has a very French style that made it look so much more authentic. The dialogue was also very impressive. It was very realistic and easy to understand. I would highly recommend this movie to any French person. This movie was one of the most important in French history and was almost forgotten. It's hard to find a movie like this one. It's very rare to see a movie that's this good. It's worth seeing. If you like this movie, I recommend the movie "Le Diabolique".

I just saw the film at the Tribeca Film Festival, and I liked it a lot. I loved the contrast between the music of the score and the film itself. The score is well written, while the film itself is superbly made. The main character of the film is an ordinary, but sincere, music student, who has a difficult life. As a result of his situation, he makes very little effort in his life, but gets great pleasure when he hears great music. This is what he wants to be like. However, he is a "nice guy", and he tries to make a good impression in his studies, but he can't. He finds the reason to be frustrated with his life, and he tries to find a way to turn his feelings into something positive. In this way, he sees the music as a source of happiness. The film was filmed with a lot of precision. The scenes are well chosen, the music is very well composed, and the camera work is quite good. The film shows the struggle of a person to be happy and how the musician in the film finds a way to be happy, while he is at the same time miserable. The film's message is quite clear, although it is a little too subtle to be understood by the average audience. It is, however, a very good film, and I recommend it to people who are interested in cinema.

I would like to point out that the soundtrack to this film is amazing. It fits the mood of the film perfectly. I love the music, and it is always a great comfort. My personal favourite song is "Prestige" by Jan and Dean. It's very haunting, and even when I think about it, I can't help but feel a connection to it. If you are a fan of the band, I highly recommend it. This movie is worth watching. I think it will become a classic in the future.

A good movie about a girl who has to get out of her small town and find a way to save herself and her brother from the harsh environment of the world. The movie is quite beautiful, the cast is great, and the atmosphere is really good. If you like beautiful movies, I think this is one you should watch. If you are not a fan of this genre, you should watch it anyway. It is very artistic and very good for you.

The brilliant and complex movie "Paris Is Burning" (1966) is about the pain and fear of loneliness, of homelessness and desperation, of lovelessness and abandonment, the sadness and despair, and the fear of death. "Paris Is Burning" tells the story of an ambitious and young music lover, Guillaume Beauregard, who spends his life in Paris, traveling between her famous music clubs, and her shabby, decaying and lonely apartment blocks. Guillaume is in a constant battle with himself, with his sensual desires and his responsibilities, and with the loneliness and fear of death. This movie is based on a novel by Michael Haneke, and it is a brilliant and tragic movie, and the most original movie I have ever seen. It is a beautiful, evocative movie that deserves to be seen in the theatre. I have also watched it on DVD, and the second and third versions (I believe) are also outstanding, as are all the versions I have seen. The cinematography is beautiful, the acting is superb, and the story is full of symbolism and sad humor. It is a masterpiece, and it deserves to be seen. 10/10.

In a way, I am a huge fan of Bizet, and even thought that this film was almost entirely a hit. But there was something about this film which seemed to go beyond the mere fact that it was a hit, and caught me completely by surprise. I could not have imagined that the film was something so utterly good, so artistic, so challenging and yet so so spectacular. I was compelled to watch this film, and it still seems to be a few years from me. It seems like I've grown very fond of the film, and I must say that the story that this film tells is the most poignant and realistic story I've ever heard. The story of the young men's trials and the ones of the older generation, who had just been raised with music as the main element of their existence, when faced with the truth of their situation. The only thing missing was the final conclusion that was never quite there. The characters have personalities that are so alive and full of pain and suffering. The younger men, like Hugo, are what keeps the movie afloat and moving. The older men, like Michel, have a history of affairs, some with their brothers, some with their lovers, some with the French government. They seem to have no sense of the injustice that has been going on throughout their entire lives, until one day they have a chance to be a part of the 'Victory of Paris' that was seen on television. The way that the older men had fallen for the 'victory of Paris' was as shocking and frightening as anything the young men have ever experienced. The conflict between the older and younger was also very well developed. The older men had no idea of the consequences of the situation that they had been placed into, until one day, after they had left, the news of what had happened on the streets, and the complicity of the French government, made them realise the reality of their situation. It also brought back memories of how bad things had been in France under the communists. It was the one thing that kept this film alive, and made it entertaining and gripping. It showed what would have happened in France had the revolution occurred, and how the country had really turned into a criminal state. The plot was interesting and kept me captivated, and I'm not sure how else to put it, but I really think that this is a film that would be loved by almost everyone.

Cyrilie Bega, one of the most promising French actresses, has a gorgeous face, and she has that extraordinary voice which is very hard to live without. This film, for me, is the most beautiful film ever made. It is about a young actress who is casted by a screen writer. She learns a lot about herself by watching the male actors, but also by listening to what they say. She must confess that she doesn't have a musical instrument, but she has a very important secret. Her secret is to become a singer. But her secret isn't one that anyone can hear, because there are a lot of people who don't have the musical talent to hear her secret. This movie is a masterpiece of cinema.

A film that is constantly moving from one mood to the next, both in the past and the present, not even allowing time for a breather. Imho, Les ombres de sin amie is one of the best films I have ever seen. I think it's the best film ever made by my country.

A wonderful film, in my opinion, that deals with the use of music and the relationship between the sexes. The scene of the young woman (played by Jeanne Dujardin) asking for a bass in the 1960s is so emotionally moving that I can't stop thinking about it. The music is very interesting as well. I recommend this movie to all the people who want to learn more about the music history of the world.

A silent film, yet for a great part of the movie it's almost impossible to hear what's being said. The soundtrack is excellent and it's sung by the lovely Elizabeth McGovern, who's voice is nearly perfect for the part. In some parts, I felt like I was watching a play or stage performance. (That's the best compliment I can give to a film.) You can't help but wonder about the costumer, who has to stand in front of a green screen and make sure that the makeup doesn't look fake. (I was reminded of the movie "The Fountain" with Philip Seymour Hoffman, who plays the part of a playwright and makes sure that the scenery is immaculate.) The film is not without flaws. It's difficult to believe that the director is the brother of the great John Cassavetes, who also wrote the score and performed the music. I don't think it's fair to compare this film to Cassavetes' work, but it is to say that this is not a film you'd want to watch twice. If you have nothing to do, but want to watch a silent film, this is one to see.

A deep study of the aesthetics of an age, the 1970's, of music, fashion, culture, and urban life, which examines the characters and motivations of its protagonists. There is a delicate musicology to be gleaned from the varied scenes and situations, as well as the way that they are presented, and the manner in which they are presented. I think one of the most important things about this movie is that the characters are not, as so often in French movies, simple, stereotypical, stereotypical, stereotypical. They are not shallow caricatures. They have depth, and are real people, people who have had real experiences. The movie is about music, fashion, and urban life, which are not always the same, and there is a general lack of understanding of the difference between the two.
