This is beautiful - I love the arthousie feel of the movie - acting so natural and deep emotions understated - felt a little teary but jubilant in the end.
This was simply a lovely movie about love and its many variations
A very moving story. Beautifully acted and didn't want to movie to end.
I enjoyed this seemingly sweet and simple story which was actually layered and touching on many levels. Improbable in parts but Gerard D is reliably great and plays these guileless characters so well. I am learning to enjoy the subtitles as a key to another world. There are so many great French movies we have to get over it or miss out.
Alovely simple story about three lovely people .Don't be put off by the sex and language rating- not an issue
Very enjoyable movie, Gerard is a great actor and this is a lovely story, just love some of the french movies. Unfortunately once again, the movie seized up and skipped towards the end :/
Some interesting characters well acted and a thoughtful film. Just wish I had been able to see the other half and know the ending.
Yes, delightful enough movie although couldn't get the main character's girlfriend. You have to be joking, right? Maybe all of us older blokes better make the move to France! But then again it was only a movie and thus make believe. Wonder if the old folk’s home at the end was make believe or based on French reality also? How old is Depardieu? Reminded me a bit of Jack Nicholson in one of his recent films where he was having a fling with women in their 20's, it just didn't work.
Found the beginning a bit annoying but overall enjoyed this movie.
Don't care for sub title as I need to concentrate more but this was a delightful story to watch for sure. Recommended by my sister and I would recommend it also.
Gentle, wonderful, whimsical... typically French
The Heist was a very funny movie. The actors did not disappoint . I recommend it.
Sweet and a little complex. Beautiful characters. I loved it.
It seemed like a great DVD but unfortunately we were not able to watch all of it as there was problem with the tracking and it kept stopping.
Its hilarious some people can't read fast enough to enjoy movies with subtitles! Enjoyed the light touch and french humour of this movie.
A lovely touching story about the bond between friendships.. One never knows where real friendship starts and where it will come from. The actress who plays Margueritte is wonderful.
Why not let's strive to bring out the best in each other not the worst. maybe we could all take a leaf out of this book.
One of the best movies I have seen this year, satisfying on so many levels! loved the Margueritte character,very believeable!!
Depardieu is great in this and it was a light and nice comedy to watch.
Quite a nice movie enjoyable
This was an interesting and intriguing movie. Slightly quirky because it was French.
This was such an enjoyable movie - wasn't going to watch it all but it drew me in...some beautiful poignant moments and so well acted! A little old sweet lady leading the village oaf and they all lived happily ever after!
Excellent. Typical good French film
Beautiful, touching film.
It took a while for the films story to unfold. Couldn't believe how much weight G D had put on. Loved his sensitive portrayal of the unloved child. His mother was despicable. Such a beautiful endingand a celebration of the human spirit.
in French with English subtitles, a movie of good feelings, nice and clean, very enjoyable
a wonderful story of friendship and how true friendships are formed from a two-way interaction
This is a very heart warming movie and I loved it!!!
Such a gorgeous movie, absolutely lovely.
A truly beautiful film, worth at least 5 stars !
Had to read the movie. Was a basic theme.
Wonderful, warm and makes you feel good all over.
Great movie enjoyred watching it. If you are a fan of Gerard you will enjoy this movie, funny , sad and uplifting . I recommend it .
A very nice plot and Gerard does his stuff well , a happy lesson via thsi movie
Nice film. Only Gerard Depardieu probably could have taken the part that he took and do it so well. It's actually about how to rise out a dysfunctional upbringing.
Very disappointed movie in subtitles. This was not shown on the choices menu.
Enjoyed this film tremendously - acting was excellent and the story very touching.
Beautiful film - showing that life presents us all with the opportunities of hope, love and compassion.
Touching story about a mother and her grown up son. Enjoyed it!
sweet little movie - easy to understand w limited french if you can't be bothered reading the subs
Brilliant movie. Very soft and gentle.
I didnt end up watching it at all- I put it on and the whole movie had subtitles. I tried to watch about 15 minutes and that was enough for me! then I fast forwarded right through the movie and couldnt believe you had to read the whole thing so Im glad i didnt bother.
Enjoyable in parts .... drifted in parts
It is nice predictable feel good movie, well acted.
Maybe this is a chick flick (hubby - who I always thought was a SNAG, dozed off and went to bed, leaving we 3 girls riveted). Depardieu is not sexy, but a crab (hard shell, soft inside), and though his relationship with the older woman is more fully formed than the one with his girlfriend, his response to the news on the bus brought me to tears. Unlike the reviewers who thought the poem over the closing titles was trite, I loved it so much I paused the movie to write it down line by line.
This is a really sweet film - what a change to watch something uplifting. Delightful.
Nice story, but was somewhat unconvinced with Gerard's lady in the movie. Doubtful!
An absolutely delightful film. We loved every minute of it.
I'm not much of a Gerard Depardieu fan, but this was a lovely movie, very beautifully acted. Very enjoyable if you don't mind subtitles.
