    Mais um grande filme da dupla Audrey Tautou e Jean-Pierre Jeunet (respectivamente atriz e diretor do sublime O fabuloso destino de Amèlie Poulan), Eterno Amor é realmente emocionante.
    Ambientando na primeira guerra mundial, o filme retrata a história da francesa Mathilde (Audrey) que desde a infância vive com os tios (pois perdeu os pais em um acidente trágico) e sofre de uma doença incurável para a época, a poliomelite que a prejudica a andar de forma normal.
    Sua vida seguia…

    I had seen this film before, but for one reason or another it never registered that strongly. But watching it now, it is a beautiful, artfully composed epic story of True Love, Hope, Memory, Mystery, and empathy.
    Set during and immediately after WW I, the film begins with the story of 5 condemned French soldiers, convicted of cowardice for self-mutilating themselves. Instead of going before the firing squad, like the unlucky soldiers in Kubrick's Paths of Glory, the 5 are…

    Things that make me feel old: It was ten whole years ago I reviewed this film:

    ... a collision of Minghella's Cold Mountain, Jeunet's Amelie, and Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan. Watching it feels like going to an amusement park in the middle of a war zone while a battle is underway. We're strapped into dozens of dizzying rides, some of which are sickening and terrifying, others that are goofy and strange, and every few minutes our faces are shoved into the grisly horrors of war.

    A beautiful love story but it's specially a very well done war story. The consequences, the small gestures and how they impact on the lives of others, the uncertainty of death on the trenches. I was really surprised with this movie, went into it looking for a love story and it was so much more.

    Misses the magic of the previous Jeunet films like Amélie or Micmacs.

    Mystery and WWI drama. Jeunet-style.

    On the surface of course this is a very beautiful film to look at. Beneath that, there almost isn't much of anything else.

    I could make an easy joke mocking the title like "More like A Very Long Movie!" or "A Very Boring Engagement" but it doesn't deserve that. I can see why and how this would bring some people to a very emotional place, and make it…

    Quite a cocktail of genres woven together to form a beautiful story. Easily my favorite Jeunet film.

    An intricately plotted visual poetry which delineates the romantic journey of a woman who is on an inexorable quest to find her fiancé who was presumed dead as the part of a trench warfare in the World War One. It requires a lot of attention span to appreciate the triumph of this composite screenplay which goes back-and-forth into present and past happenings and mystery unravelling involving the lives of five soldiers which includes the fiancé of the protagonist too, all…

    When Manech, a conscript in WWI, is presumed dead, his fiancée refuses to give up hope and goes on a long search for her lover.

    As with Amélie, Jeunet combines imaginative storytelling with superb filmmaking, an old-fashioned romanticism and the charms of Audrey Tatou. It’s a film that moves from great scene to great scene, often leaving you awestruck with its giddy celebration of style.

    And yet, there is a void at its centre: we see a woman move heaven…
