| Impressive movie, made with by an open, talented, great mind.
I'm really impressed by the character of Manu, which is in fact the autobiographical version of José Giovanni, the writer and director. I think I might even start reading Giovanni's books! Great acting also by both Bruno Cremer (father) and Vincent Lecoeur (son).
