Nice, sad, romantic movie
I've seen this movie (actually, part 2 only) late at night, and I found it quite touching. The story itself is not original (but then, how could a romance be?..), but the style itself, all those small gestures, nice colors, like an aquarelle. Something you'd like to look at if you are in romantic mood. Marie Trintignant played absolutely convincing. Such a pity that a real life turned out to be so ghastly for her, this makes a movie even more sad than it was supposed to be.
Also, having such a good impression after seeing only the second part of the film, I cannot be sure whether it would be the same if I'd seen it from the very beginning. Sometimes too much explanation kills the essence of the story. I know at least one other movie - namely, "Meet Joe Black", that left much better impression the first time, when I started to look a way after the prologue part.
