Antoine Besson, Miriam's divorced husband, is a nice man. In charge of security in a hospital, he is esteemed both by his superiors and his fellow colleagues. Moreover he is a good father who, willing to be closer to his eleven-year-old son Julien, has chosen to be transferred to the town where the boy lives with his mother and his older sister Joséphine, soon to be of age. That is the very reason why Antoine, the caring father, is asking for joint custody of Julien. Well, all that would be fine provided Antoine actually was the man he claims to be. The trouble is that his wife and his two children see him in a very different light. For in the past, Antoine was far from an angel. On the contrary, he had a knack for creating an atmosphere of permanent fear at home, going as far as to occasionally beat his wife under his children's eyes. And he got away with it all the more easily as Miriam, wishing to avoid even more problems, never lodged a complaint against him - a fact that eventually turns against her. Which is why, despite the fact that Julien does not want to see his father any more, the family court judge complies with Antoine's request.

It was sad and strange to see the French taking an important role in the production of the last film of the director Maurice Samuel. It was sad and strange that these films were made in the seventies. They are not the films of the people. They are the films of the studio who made them. The films are very much based on the history of these French people, especially Jean Baptiste Champod. They are supposed to be the French that made the films. But I do not know, I have never heard these people speak. They speak French, but they do not say any French, at least in my point of view. The people of this film speak French, but they are not French. This is a small and very sad thing about the film, but I think that this is the beginning of the end of the last films of Maurice Samuel, I would be happy if they would show the people who made these films in the films, to show that they are the French people. The film is not beautiful, but it is a testimony of the society of the French people. I think that the director did not want the French people to see themselves. But I think that in his films they see themselves.

Garde (Gilles Leconte), a prosperous husband who works in a very prestigious and prominent law firm, has a strange life with his young daughter Elizabeth (Juliette Binoche) in a very low-class house. One day while running errands, he meets Henri (Dominique Pinon) who buys a taxi for him and takes him to his home. The "dummy" comes in contact with Garde who is completely changed by the taxi and feels like a child. But the real world is a dark and cold place, where everything is hard and nothing is good. Garde and Henri are not interested in each other at first, but the closer they become to each other, the more their relationship changes. The law firm is very influential, but at the same time, Garde is trying to keep his daughter's heart in peace. There is a lot of mental instability in this film, with many strange happenings and endless scenes of many different emotions. The characters don't really say anything or think, but it's impossible to deny their emotions and the feelings they have. When you watch this film, it is impossible not to feel things, even if the actors are not allowed to. There is not a single moment of boredom. The pictures are great and the story very moving and never boring. The characters are very good and the main actor, Jean-Pierre Leaud, is really the best there is. The ending is very sad and poetic. This is a very good and very very good film. My vote is eight. Title (Brazil): Not Available

Halle Berry stars as an Afro-American woman who moves to a white neighborhood and begins to live in the shadow of her half-breed neighbor. Halle Berry makes a living as a stripper. As she makes her way into the white community, she sees a chance for redemption. This is the type of film that makes you think about what it means to be a real black person, and how that is a hard thing to do. Berry seems to be a sincere young woman. She is never mean or uncaring, despite the fact that she lives in a neighborhood of just about everyone else, and she is going to work in a factory if she wants a job. At the end of the film, Berry turns her back on the community, and becomes a fully integrated member of it. This is a much more realistic portrayal of black people than you see in the usual Hollywood fare. The movie's themes are universal, and Berry's character is more realistic than one would expect. It's almost like she was made for that part. The script is terrific, and the film is beautiful to look at. Berry also has the perfect voice to carry this movie, and her acting is very believable. The supporting cast also includes Sean Patrick Flannery, Bobby Cannavale, and Dana Dunbar. There is no character in the film that I did not like. They all play very important roles in the story. Berry gives one of the best performances in this movie. If you have not seen this movie, please do.

This film is one of those rare cases in which the director's total trust in his own work is rewarded with an emotional impact on the viewer. The most wonderful aspect of this film is its ability to have you on the edge of your seat, wondering what will happen next and this is the main reason why I would like to see more films like this. "La Garde" is a sincere, honest and touching portrayal of the joy and sorrow of a man who has lost his wife and has had to accept that it's the only thing left to him. The main character, a teacher, is so full of self-hatred that he can't move beyond the self-destruction in his own mind. You can feel his pain and he does not hide his pain from his students or the other students in the class. He does not tell them he's depressed. He doesn't want to talk about his illness. The students don't know about his illness. The students feel that they can't talk about their feelings because he is so depressed. The story does not give you a clear answer as to why the teacher's suicide has to happen, but I do know that this film is one of the best reasons to watch this film because it asks you to think about what you do to yourself and that you accept this pain for what it is. If you do not know what it is like to suffer, this film will be impossible to watch. I know that it's not the best film out there, but it's one of the most remarkable because it's so honest and simple. There are people that feel that they're unlovable. You don't need to feel like you're unlovable to understand that people can be unhappy or depressed. However, I've seen that in the world, it's something that we are, that we are not ready for it. This film was made for people like us. It's not the best film I've ever seen, but it's a movie I would watch again and again because it's so important.

This is not a normal movie, and it won't have the normal expectations. What you will get is a real experience. This is the first film made with the Irish director. The plot is about a bunch of amateur actors living in a rented house in the countryside. There is a villain (the most evil character), a girl who is in love with him, and a cop who has gone to bad ends. It is a drama, with comedy. It is a comedy about the small world of the poor in France. It is a drama about the petty violence between the small town people. It is a drama about a new year, a holiday, and the man in love, and the movies he will make. It is a very interesting film, and you will have a special feeling when you see the end.
