What a smashing film
kind of spoiled at the end though by ...........
*not really a SPOILER ALERT*
.....the screen shots of the actual people the story was about....
Probably not spoiled but certainly disappointed!
great feel good film.
If you do a 'let me google that for you' I'll knock you out.
what's shocking is that the actual story involves an arab playing the part of the african guy and it was changed for the film to make it more palatable for french audiences, supposedly. the racists
My mind was blown by the fact that the writer/director/actor of this child protection procedural, Maïwenn, was married to Luc Besson at 16.
François Cluzet has been great in every film I've seen him in (4 - this, Little White Lies, Tell No One and The Art of Love)
It was bugging me where I had seen him before. Another good French film.
remake. I accidentally rented it from LoveFilm not knowing that it was a remake but it was better than the original film, which itself was great.
I'm starting to think you're a troll.
for this contrary bastard
I was mistaken. I got confused between Tell No One and the French film Anything For Her. The latter was remade as The Next Three Days with Russell Crowe
If it had been British, it would have had a depressing 30 minutes shoved in about 2 thirds through.
They're not so bad these days, but I hate that niggling feeling you get during British films that whenever something is going well for someone, there's a suicide imminent.
turned up about 15 minutes before the end. But as you say, it didn't follow the tired stereotype
The scene where he busts out some authentic funky black dancing at the stuffy white classical music party - *eyebrow raise*
Lets be honest, if it was an american film about an inner city black gangster going to live with a paraplegic white old guy and being his servant... there would be more than a raised eyebrow.
