This is a fantastic movie. I hope it gets the recognition it deserves. The main actors give very strong performances; you really feel part of this moving story. It is both funny and touching in its portrayal of two people who help each other overcome life's very difficult problems. .

It was fantastic, I highly recommend this movie! The acting outstanding. You laughed, you felt empathy you cheered, your emotions were high and it was brillantly executed. It is one of the finest foreign movies I have ever seen. I haven't enjoyed a movie in such a long time it was just wonderful to see heart and soul and so much caring for the characters. Thank you for a most enjoyable and enteraining time at the movies....RB

Sweet on the surface, complicated underneath

Somebody was in charge of keeping this feel-good movie from crossing over the line into so-sweet-it-makes-your-fillings-ache. It's a dark situation laced with beams of light and proving what comedians know: we want to laugh at adversity--and the more adverse, the harder we want to laugh. Here, we get to tear up, too. Although it's a movie with no villains, it gets you in a bear hug that won't let go.

I took my 16 year old (American Film Indocrinated teen -exposed only to multimillion dollar crap that can be marketed into video games) and he said, "Mom, I think this is one of the best films I've seen. Why don't they make more films like this?" Money, of course. Leave it to the Europeans to make adult dramas that are much desired and needed. We are left to Focus Films and Magnolia Films and gems like this one to keep us going. Must see. Magnetic and charming.

A breath of fresh air

The quick comparisons would be to fine movies like Driving Miss Daisy and Finding Forrester. Like them, it puts together two very different people and lets them discover how much more enriching, in the best sense of that word, each of their lives can be from the relationship that develops. This is "based on a true story", and while it undoubtedly has been embellished for the big screen, the performances ring true and the storyline captures your interest from start to end. Since this is a French movie with English subtitles, it probably won't last long in the theaters, but whether on the big screen or as a rental, this is definitely worth a look.
