Trivia

The scenario is based on a novel: "E=mc2 Mon Amour" by Claude Klotz (writing under the better-known name of Patrick Cauvin) which had been first published in 1977, only two years after the death of Patrice des Moutils (aka "Monsieur X", a probability expert working in an insurance company) who became famous in France during the early 1960s for his creative use of computers. Des Moutils had the idea of calculating the Bayesian probabilities of winning for each and every horse in a race, and placing accordingly an array of bets. This method brought him fabulous gains (20 times the amount of his bets) but he became subject to the unremitting hostility of the French OTB system which succeeded--after several years of harassment--in bankrupting him and thus inadvertently driving him to suicide.

Innocence personified
17 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

There are no words to express the real beauty of this movie, nor the depth of its import. There are those who have lived in such innocence and courage as the children in this movie, but in this new millennium such would be as rare as purity itself. After 106 minutes of near flawless value, it makes one wonder what has happened to wonder and gentleness; it seems they have journeyed far away, taking with them respect and graciousness. Such a treasure as this film makes one long for a time of civility and trust. Diane Lane had an auspicious beginning here, though too many of her later films lacked the substance of this one. Sally Kellerman does what she does best, and Arthur Hill seems the father of whom all daughters dream. By all means, rent this film and share the adventure!
