This film has a few gems and as a comedy it is decent, but what is lacking is the great acting, great direction and great acting from all. The story is simple, it has 3 children, who are in a family crisis, but they all make their own plan to get out of it. I was expecting to see a lot more acting from the kids, but it was decent, they all did an good job with the film. The most memorable scene is the boat scene, they did a great job with that. This is not a good movie, it is a very simple comedy with great acting and directing. Watch it if you want to laugh, otherwise, don't waste your time.

The plot is a bit off, but the characters are funny and a lot of fun. I have to admit, though, that I really didn't like the way this film was shot. It was completely handheld, and almost every scene seemed a little too close to the actors (not too bad, just a little off). I think that's why the actors had such good chemistry with one another, but it's a minor quibble. The filming was actually pretty good. It doesn't look like they filmed in a lab, but it's certainly professional, and they use digital camera angles to accentuate the movie. In the end, it's a cute little film. It's not the best comedy ever made, but it's not the worst either.

The first half is too slow and the second half is just a bit too messy, but the second half is very good. I'm not so sure about the narration but in any case it is really, really nice.

Olivier's great, gorgeous painting of the grotesque murderer of his friend, Gaston Leroux, is brought to life, with some beautiful photography and a lovely score. There are the same sorts of mysteries as in "Le Chambre Thomme," which I also liked, and which gets a big audience: mysteries of "what did he do?" and "What is he?" and "What is he going to do?" And, to some extent, a thought-provoking "what was his relationship with the murdered friend?" (even though the friend, the writer, is revealed as a virgin). And the book has an odd "why did he kill the friend?" sort of ending. But, overall, "Le Retour du Héros" is an absolutely splendid film, which is one of the best of the year.

My favorite period of French history is from the eighteenth century to the 18th century. As far as I am concerned, the films about the Hundred Years' War show the humanity of the French people, not the nobility, or the intellectual. The "Rigaud" (Fellini) and the "La Rochefort" (Diaz) are far more interesting, and much more natural. In addition, there are many beautiful and classic scenes: the courtyard between the two chateaus, the duel between the two brothers, the coronation, etc. The other great part of the story is the French woman, the Joan of Arc. This historical event shows that France is the motherland of all mankind. The film "La Femme d'Hippolyte" (Selected Hymns) was recently released in the United States, and I recommend it for anyone interested in history. In addition, I have two copies of this film, one for myself, and one for my wife. The other copy is for her. She is always very satisfied with the films I watch.

Well.I think this is a very clever movie. I really like the way the director chose to make the story. There's a great sense of humor in it. It's full of very light, very clever humor. And for the most part, it works. And it's a true story. The cast is very good. The costumes are very good, too. The acting is very good. The pacing of the movie is great. I really like the style of this movie. I really liked how the director chose to get to the point. I think it's an interesting story. I think this is a very good movie. I would recommend this movie to people who like comedies and those who like romance. And I think it's a great movie.

This is a film about the fears of people who cannot cope with the imminent death of their spouse. Well acted by all the main characters. I really liked this movie and the performances of the actors, although it is predictable. The performances of the actress, Claire Tremblay (aka "Bree" in the film), and the little boy (Jason Lee) are exceptional. This is a very good film, very creative, full of life and energy.

Jean-Pierre Melville is a respected French writer and critic who is also an ardent fan of the Cremonese film. Having been promised to an agent, Melville decides to send his wife to stay with her relatives in Bordeaux. The agent then informs him that his wife is pregnant and she is to be sent to Paris to have an abortion. The agent reminds Melville that he has sent his wife to France several times before and that the last time was eight months ago. This is the beginning of a memorable friendship that forms a crucial part of Melville's life. While he is still in Bordeaux he stays at his friend's house in an almost dreamlike way. He writes to his friend every day, sends him letters, and in return he writes back. His friendship grows and the two go from friend to friend and discuss, in no particular order, the old and new classics of literature and film. The bond between Melville and his friend is always present and while their friendship lasts, it is never shallow or superficial. It is honest and heartfelt and their friendship is far from the tawdry and unsophisticated world of his wife. This film is very much about the relationship between Melville and his friend and how he is changing, almost without realizing it, his life. It is also about his friendship with another writer who is a fellow Cremonese and Melville's disillusionment with the French and the culture in general. This film is very good and very personal. It is very French and very French people speak about this film. It is a good film, very sincere, and shows the fact that Melville is not a hard-boiled character. He is very honest and you see the changes he undergoes in his life.

I enjoyed the first film, I loved the humor, and I liked the movie. This one is not as funny, although the movie is quite fun. It's just not that much fun, especially because of the lackluster dialogue. I really enjoyed the last ten minutes of this one. I thought the acting was better than the first one, though the acting was also a bit lackluster. I think that the plot was way better this time around, and I thought it was a great movie. The movie is about an English missionary named James O'Brien who wants to do missionary work in Haiti, but he gets into a lot of trouble along the way. The movie isn't that great, but I thought it was fun and I liked it. I have never seen the original, but I guess this is one of the better movies about Haiti that has been made. I would have liked it better, but I didn't hate it as much as I had hoped I would. It's still a decent movie, but I didn't love it as much as I had hoped I would. It's just not as funny as the first one. I think it's a bit duller, but I still thought it was a good movie. 8/10

Very good movie, it has some plot problems, but the point is well stated. The performances were good, with Nicolas Cage and Andy Garcia, who I really like. They made the movie very entertaining. I guess it is not so popular as some of the other french movies, but it is a good movie, I liked it a lot. I watched it on DVD, and I liked the extras, I give this movie 8/10

This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. It was way ahead of it's time and yet still has a lot of relevant quotes and images. The story is gripping and heart-wrenching. It's funny and the pacing of the movie is very, very slow. The only thing that is slow is the main character and his mother. Overall, I recommend this movie. It's certainly not for everyone but I think anyone would enjoy it. There are so many powerful and meaningful messages. The characters are excellent and their personalities are well defined. I really liked how this movie managed to cover a broad range of subjects and make them not so heavy. I enjoyed it and it has stayed with me and is worth seeing. It will make you think.

When it comes to comedy films I'm all for self parody, you need to see a movie like A Christmas Story to see how the writer of this film sees it. The jokes are all geared to make fun of the same industry we all work in. From the parody on the "cute" Japanese car commercials to the mockery on the animated animals, they all have something in common. It has to be the "foreign" tone of the film. A funny film about a holiday made by foreigners would be funny to all kinds of people. In this movie the only people who know a thing or two about the holiday, are the doctors. The doctors are in a way stereotyped. They are the types of people you wouldn't want to cross paths with. They're the ones who aren't very nice. But they have one thing they really have, they have a lot of money. Everyone in the movie has a thing they'd like to do, and they all want it to happen. The thing about this movie is that it is not that funny, but the fact that it isn't funny makes it a lot of fun. I highly recommend this movie.

I liked this film. It's funny and full of Easter references. I think it is the best of the recent films with French actors in the lead. It's very refreshing to see a film with actors who are not only actors, but actors who are also actors. It's always great to see Jean Rochefort, Anne Fontaine and Gerard Depardieu. This film has good action, good comedy and great romance. If you like movies with French actors in the lead, watch it. It's worth watching. You might not like it, but you'll like it. I'll rate it 8/10. I'm not sure why this film is rated so low.

This is the story of a married man who goes on a holiday to the mountains to see his teenage son, who has been kidnapped by the local tribe. The movie is full of small eccentricities, it is a movie to watch with a group of friends, and for that reason alone, it's worth a watch. The cast is perfect, and the film is well made. The ending is not as dark as I expected, but that's probably due to the fact that I didn't read the book, as I didn't want to ruin a great ending. The movie is very stylized, and you can't help but look at the movie as an art piece. I give it 8/10, as I do think it's a good movie. If you are interested in art, I suggest you watch this movie.

I was very skeptical about this film, but I was pleasantly surprised. It is a good movie. The actors were really good and they made me feel like I was watching it myself. The movie itself is just a comedy, but it does make you feel a little sad and it makes you feel sad that one person will never be a great musician like they wanted. I like it. It was a good movie.

This is a film about nature vs. man. The question is is it really a question of nature or man? The answer is yes. The film is about nature's conquest and that the man has changed the environment. The man's motives are in his greed and desire to dominate the natural environment. When the natural environment is in peace it is a paradise. When man destroys nature it is only through his greed. He creates destructive nature. The people in the movie are part of nature, they just want to be left alone. The people in the movie are in charge, they are protecting the environment. It is a tale about man. I think it is a really good film.

I will start by saying that I did not have high expectations going into this film. I was not expecting anything big and I was more than willing to accept that it was a very generic adventure film. I was even willing to sit through it with the lowest of expectations. After the opening I was surprised to find that it had the feel of a fun family film. A teenage girl is driven to travel to Asia to be part of a small band of travelers that sets out on a perilous journey that takes them from the middle of the jungle to the northernmost tip of Alaska. The film does not pretend to be something it is not, as it is very true to its concept. However, it is not very realistic in terms of the traveling life of the young women. The entire movie is very much a fantasy, with the girls having to deal with their unusual situation. However, the constant dialogue between the group of girls is very realistic. I am sure that a lot of the jokes are expected, but the true comedy lies in their conversations. I was really surprised to find that many of the jokes were actually very funny. Most of the jokes come from a group of girls sitting around one of the group of travelers. They are sitting around and talking about the food, how they can never get enough, and about their favorite holiday. In my opinion, this is not as exaggerated as I had expected. In fact, I was expecting a lot more slapstick, but the truth is that the dialogues are witty and funny. Some of the humor is also delivered with emotion, such as when the girl is sitting on the cliff on the island with a small boy who is the father of the girl. There is also one scene in the film where the girls make a small speech to the group of travelers about the importance of family and friendship. In addition to the dialogues, the girls interact with one another. There are very few scenes in the film where the girls do not interact with one another, as they are all really nice to each other. Overall, the dialogues and the relationships between the girls are what make this movie enjoyable. The movie is quite predictable at some points, but it is very much a family movie, with the girls being more realistic and the outsiders a bit more unrealistic. For me, the realism is more important to me than the unrealistic, but I still enjoyed this movie. I was happy to see that the director also did a good job at making the film enjoyable. There is a lot of funny dialogues, but not too many big laughs. There is a lot of action in the movie, but it is very much a family movie, as there is quite a bit of adventure. I was very surprised that this movie was so funny, and I think that it is a very different film from the usual adventure films that are coming out. This is a very good family film, with the dialogues and the action making this

I had to watch this film because I am in love with all French movies. This one is very different, but a good film. It is very much about destiny and history. In this film there are some historical figures from France. I don't want to reveal all of them, but some of them are very interesting and well known. I think that there are also some references to the good war in France. I think that the film is very good, and if you want to watch a good French film, I recommend you to watch this one. My vote is eight. Title (Brazil): "Dia de Homem" ("In the name of Jesus")

I had the fortune of viewing the film the other night and it has to be one of the most beautifully shot, filmed films I've ever seen. The shots of Paris were absolutely stunning and the film itself was shot very beautifully. It's no wonder why this film won the best picture Oscar at the first time of it's release. The acting in this film is very well done and it's easy to see why Isabelle Huppert won the best actress award for this film. She really is just outstanding. It's a film that is very realistic. The people of Paris really are a very diverse group of people. Everyone is different from one another and no one looks alike. I can easily say that this film is very accurate to life and the people of Paris. This is an outstanding film and one of the best films of 2002.

I wasn't too sure what to expect from this movie. I was like most others in the theater when the lights came on and the trailer started. My reaction is a mix of dread and excitement. I thought that I was going to get a movie that would bore me to death. I was not disappointed. There was not much nudity in this movie. But I think that it was the perfect mix of humor and romance. I really enjoyed it. It is a great way to spend an afternoon. I would suggest it to anyone who has ever been to France. They will all be able to relate to the characters.

What a funny, raucous, and, yes, almost ludicrous film. Some things are said, some things are not. It's an offbeat picture, like "Hausu", or the earlier American comedy "The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight" (1963). What they all have in common is that they are films about the underdogs. This one is about the goofy, over-enthusiastic (and really quite wonderful) bumbling bulldog Mickey, who comes to the aid of a young girl on the verge of having her face kicked in by a rapist. Mickey does what any of us could do - he helps. But this film has a very serious tone, and it alludes to the higher forces at work. This film is filled with satire, on the way-too-easy Hollywood success story. It is filled with that sort of silliness that makes movies enjoyable and entertaining. As a movie, it's really fun. As a film, it's truly remarkable. I've read some bad reviews of this film, because it has something that some people don't like. I don't know what it is. Some people who are not into comedy like to see things happen. This film is truly bizarre and wonderful.

Perhaps I am being a little harsh, but if I had seen the first two half-hour's I would have been sorry, but I think I saw the first four. The film is very good, I can't imagine the film not being so. The acting is very good and the screenplay is very good. What I liked most was that the film is very realistic. I had some doubts about the story, but the film never plays like a documentary, but more like a historical film. I could also recognize many influences from Jean-Pierre Melville's 'The First World War' which I found very entertaining. Of course, the real hero of the film is the French civil war. The scene in which Le Pape, a young man and his wife decide to give up the war is really touching. I would recommend this film to anyone. It's a very good movie, but it's very unrealistic.
