Wow, a guy writing a review on a movie like this, what's going on? I just have to say I watched this BEFORE I realised what it was about (which to be honest was best, as I would not have watched it otherwise!) and it was a great, moving story. The acting was great, the cinematography was very real, and I felt myself caught up in the time period. Not sure of the biographical accuracy, but if you like the mix of French culture, and movies like Pride & Prejudice or the like, then I'm sure you'll enjoy this film. The ending was almost anti-climactic? but it did leave you thinking, which is what a great piece of film should do right?
