Un chef-d'oeuvre
6 March 2012 | by danieldemariaSee all my reviews

Certain Films, a select few, can change the way you see the world. These films are expressions of a collective effort that take hundreds of professional artists, technicians, engineers, and actors of the highest caliber, working towards the ultimate goal: to produce a piece of Cinema that truly touches the viewer. That makes the audience open their mind's eye and see the world around them for what it really is or what it could be. Other Directors and Writers see this film and are undoubtedly inspired to raise their own standard even higher. Having never known one could produce a work of such high quality they strive to surpass it.

This film is a marvel - charming, witty, surprising, moving, clever, and beautiful.
