Short and Sweet...
19 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

I have always loved the 1961 version, and felt it was masterfully performed by all of the main characters. It also helped that it was filmed in English, as I do not speak French.

This version had none of the slapstick humor of the '61 film, nor any of the anecdotal humor. In a very real way, this is a completely different film. It focuses on the tormented agony of the primary characters. The acting for this approach was nothing short of stellar. I stopped what I was doing so I could pay close attention to the subtitles; this enabled me to also concentrate on the actors' movements and facial expressions. I found myself tearing up along with Fanny.

Bottom line: I will still love the Leslie Caron version for what it is, and equally love this one for what IT is.
