Movie Reviews

Perfect French Romantic Comedy
Dorion Sagan | East Coast, USA and Toronto | 01/04/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful, subtly deep romantic comedy about a group of film makers and fashion designers in Paris. With interesting, fully developed characters, no violence and real sex, it is the kind of thing Hollywood would remake poorly (e.g., compare Abre Los Ojos with Vanilla Sky) if they could--but they can't. Abortion, infidelity, "feminism" vs. "misogyny," the craving for recognition and fame--and their difference from the search for true art and love are all handled with a most delicate touch."
HBC at her best
Dorion Sagan | 06/03/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a not so interesting movie completely redeemed by a wonderful performance by Helena Bonham Carter. She's beautiful, heartbreaking, funny and oh how she can speak french!!!"
