This is a very sweet movie - sad and funny story of a beautiful relationship. Is it 100% realistic? No, it's a movie, but at it's core it is believable and lovely to watch. I laughed, I cried, I had a good time.

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 didn't know what to expect from this movie. But, when I saw it, I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!
I love the soundtrack and the relationship that Drew has with the main character is charismatic. It made me want to stay and find out what happened to the characters at the end. Everything about the movie was fantastic had it not been for the (2) stupid people who turned on their cell phones in the middle of the movie!!

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.
