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.

A good thing about this movie is that it can hold its own against the huge film festivals that every year, the festivals are the ones that carry new work from the best of the best. Take for example the films that are new at the moment, your guess is as good as mine and there is only a few, and these are the films I was impressed with. Two are "Child of God" and "The Departed". If you are not familiar with either of these films you are in for a treat, they are both spectacular but to each his own. In a year that already brought the likes of "Birdman of Alcatraz" and "The Judge" I feel like we are in a bit of a lull, there are a lot of wonderful movies that can stand the test of time. But I just want to point out that every film can hold its own, even if it isn't great, that is okay. All I can say is that "Child of God" is one of the greatest films of the year. This is the story of a father and son, a father who has no choice but to pay back his son for the crime he committed in his youth. The child has been sexually abused and the father isn't in a position to pay. Instead he gives away the child, a very young boy, to the child's foster parents. Now the child needs to grow up and then he needs to find his own way. This is the power and beauty of "Child of God". I was able to keep my eyes open through the whole film, I had to, this is a powerful story and the film makers did a wonderful job. The acting is great, especially from Christoph Waltz who plays a great character as the father. I cannot give away any more than this because if I do I will give away spoilers. A great film. See it in the festival circuit. It is a nice story, it has a great message, the father gives his son everything he needs to succeed, it is a powerful film that should be seen, and deservedly so. 8/10

In a single, memorable scene, played in "The Night Circus" and "Pompeii", the young Marius Smith delivers a tearful confession to his mother about what happened to him in the village that he now calls home. The sorrow is even more tragic when you consider that he has only one last night in the village to go before being sent away to the army. Smith was a bright and seemingly innocent lad, who showed signs of promise. "The Night Circus" is the story of a boy who leaves home and winds up in the army, spending the rest of his life serving in Africa. In the film, the only eyewitness to Smith's darkest days is his buddy, who was killed in the action. When he tells Smith that he was attacked by a gazelle, Smith starts to cry as if he is discovering some long-forgotten traumatic memory. His tears are soon replaced by his other friend's as he tells the story of how his friend died in the field of battle. At the end of the film, Smith is back at home in France and his mother returns his belongings from the military. The next day, he finds out that his neighbor, Kip, has died from a gunshot wound. He mourns the loss of the only friend he had. And his grief is only beginning. This is a real-life story of a soldier returning home from a war he never went to. Smith had been shot during combat, but he refuses to give a detailed account of his experience. The first movie to capture his emotions was "The Night Circus", but this film is much more cinematic. The former soldier's return to his home village in France was a true piece of homecoming art. The film also gives us a glimpse of life in the village that Smith left behind. In the village, the son of the chief of police, Corby, is a rioter and tramp, and his mother is weak-willed, but strong in her convictions. This is a good contrast to the loving mother we see in Smith's world. At first, she doesn't want Smith to go to France, but he can't help himself. He goes anyway. As a result, he takes the boy with him as he leaves. The mother is mortified, but she cannot get over it. She decides to take a job at the police station as a clerk. Smith is more of a womanizer than a boy scout, but as a childhood friend, she gets close to him and agrees to help him finish a letter he has written. She still won't give him a full account of his experiences, but when she realizes that he is married and has a daughter, she finally lets him go. As soon as he arrives in France, he is thrown in jail for a crime he did not commit. He is beaten by the guards, but they keep him. Smith remains in jail, but gets released after 10 days, because the court is all-male and he can prove that he is innocent. The courts believe him, and he goes back to France to finish his military service. In the meantime, he starts a relationship with a woman he was accused of murdering. The woman, Sally, is a true musician and a beautiful dancer, and Smith has a serious crush on her. But she refuses to marry him, so Smith is forced to live with

Videodrome, if it is a motion picture or a documentary, could have been created only by an intelligent man. It's a film that needs to be seen to be understood, but it's a pleasure to watch.

My wife and I watched this at our local cinema. It was shot in the lovely city of Marseilles. It is the story of a young woman, Lola, who wanders through the city's parks and has a very profound conversation with the young man, Francois, who eventually confesses to being a homosexual. What ensues is a vivid account of a young woman's journey through her life. We learn that her mother died when she was a child, leaving her father behind and her mother herself passed away when she was in her late teens. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants a good story told with some degree of realism.

A brilliant film about a family who has lived in France for generations. The story is told from a very human point of view. The adult actors are extremely likable and believable. The young actor was more imposing and presented a strong personality.

Really enjoyable film. It is what it it is not for everyone but that is the point. This is not to say that I didn't enjoy it. I did. The acting is solid. The story and the dialogue are well put together and thought-provoking. The cinematography is top-notch and really catches the beauty and sophistication of the city of Paris. The score is beautiful as well and adds to the atmosphere in the film. A very simple, but effective story. The audience is not forced to like the story or dislike the characters. The story is told and the film is told with a sense of dignity, in the same way as the characters were. The characters are also very well acted. The performances are believable. In my opinion, it is very important to have the right actors in this type of film. I liked Jean Reno very much and also enjoyed David Thewlis. The wonderful Milla Jovovich was also very good. The film is very well directed and it holds its own in the style of the French New Wave. I give this film a 10 out of 10.

With a cast of great actors, this movie is excellent. It's a slow and heavy drama that deals with racism and its effects on people. I won't spoil it for you, but to the point. The people are deeply affected by racism, but all of them have to deal with it in their own way. It's also a great movie to watch if you are like me and want to see something non-cliched and authentic, without a script. I recommend this movie highly.

I just saw this movie last night and I must say that it was very moving. The last scene (only in the French version) was a bit hard to watch, but it's just a small part of the movie. This movie is very, very, very good. This film shows how he feels after being on the island for almost two weeks. It is very powerful and very moving. I think the movie does a really good job at showing how he feels after losing his children. He is depressed and we know that the kids are in good hands, but for him, it's a bit sad. We see how he feels when he leaves the island and it does not end well for him. The last scene that he has with his kids, it is really touching. I really recommend you to see this movie. The director has done a great job with the film and I hope that the director (Jean-Pierre Cassel) will make more movies like this. For me, I gave it an 8 out of 10. Enjoy the film!

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.
