  1. Thank you for viewing my blog as well. I subscribed to your blog since I love to go to the movies. It is always helpful to have another opinion.

  2. This movie was a big deal in my country (France) but I have no intentions to see it lol. It’s very good apparently but not my kind..

  3. This is a great film and one I didn’t get around to reviewing. It’s funny and sad and touching and joyful all at once! It’s the kind of film that restores your faith in humanity!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂

  5. Salaam & Marhaba for your visit to my blog, I enjoyed your site keep up the good work :), Till next time
    In Shaa Allah….

    1. Thanks to Philippe for the tip. A little text would have been nice too! ;O)

      I’ve since read up on this film and I can tell you it won the Jury Prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and in 2012, was nominated for thirteen César Awards. So I guess it was a recommendation from Philippe for us to watch it, not to avoid it! :O)

  6. Great, great movie! I loved it!!! In French, it is hilarious!!!!! Thank you for sharing and “liking” my blog. Dariya

  7. My interest is in the cultural portrayal of heroes. (Just been listening to a BBC4 account of the Tarzan story in book and film.

    Although not a regular movie-goer, I will be including you among my searches on the subject for my leadership blogs,

    best wishes

  8. Thanks for stoping by my site. It is nice meeting you. I will be following to keep informed on what’s out there for me to watch.

  9. Thank you for stopping by ….
    hope you can pass that petition on to others …and thank for that

  10. Thanks for your recent visit to my blog,, and for your response to my recent post, Hollywood’s Blind Side. I will keep your site in mind. I and my family are all pseudo move critics.

  11. I thoroughly enjoyed this film! Oscar Cy deserves an Oscar for his performance as I felt his presence popped out of the screen as if he were in 3D. His dance scene tops all other modern day performances. His raw talent and authenticity to the role really moved me. I am crossing my fingers at the Academies although he is up against The Master and that will be a hard one to beat.

  12. A positively enchanting film in every respect. The wife and I did a double feature with this and The Sessions — another great film with similar underlying themes.

  13. I love this movie so much ! I get so excited as soon as a french movie becomes internationally renowned. The subtitles on the trailer are terrible though! It ruins half of the jokes and fails to convey the striking contrast between the two character’s diction and way of expression, (which doesn’t prevent the formation of their friendship.)

    1. Never too late to learn! Especially when one loves the art and culture of another country 🙂 Bonne continuation et bon courage. ++ 🙂

  14. Wonderful movie! Het ging van huilen van het lachen naar lachen van het huilen. =)
