    Top notch Jeunet picture that. Engrossing WWI story which certainly needs your close attention as there are a lot of names and details to keep track of. The cinematography is fucking gorgeous and the same goes for the outstanding Badalamenti score. And of course Audrey Tautou is very, very, very fucking nice to look at. She's drop dead gorgeous. if you are a fucking idiot who doesn't watch movies because they have subtitles, then, well, you are a fucking idiot and this movie isn't for you. Everybody else should certainly enjoy this picture.

    I really enjoyed this epic film, and I liked how the message in the story seemed to be "make love, not war." World War I was such a terrible time, and it was so easy for people to lose touch with their loved ones. It gives me hope for mankind when I see a story where love triumphs over violence. It gives me hope to see a woman struggle so hard for her true love. This film had some very powerful performances! If only more people could learn to love like the main characters in this story! I see a better future where love defeats war!

    I'm not sure. I couldn't watch it at once so it's hard to tell. I was confused by the plot but that's just me trying to understand everyone's name, places and French politics during the war. What I love the most about his films is his specific visual language. The story itself is dramatic and quite tragic with many emotional turns. I just appreciated how he well-balanced the emotional overtone of the film throughout. And of course, it's beautifully shot. Maybe I'll see it again. Next year.

    ETERNO AMOR

    Em “Eterno Amor”, o diretor Jean-Pierre Jeunet e a atriz Audrey Tautou repetem a parceria de sucesso de “O Fabuloso Destino de Amélie Poulain”, mas, dessa vez, sem o mesmo brilho. Aqui, acompanhamos a jornada de Mathilde (Tautou) que se recusa a crer na morte de seu grande amor Manech (Gaspard Uliel). Através da narração fragmentada dos eventos que envolveram cinco soldados franceses que foram desertados após praticar automutilação durante a 1ª Guerra Mundial, ela vai juntando as…

    #9 My Year Abroad; France

    It's been over a decade since I watched 'Amèlie', my only Jaunet thus far. I can no longer speak to just exactly how good it was, but it's no doubt I adored it. I do look forward to revisit it in order to figure out just how great I find it, but 'A Very Long Engagement' never managed to reach me in the same way.

    It's ambitious, and Jaunet's style of cinematography is certainly beautiful…

    The problem with me reviewing films is I often second guess my opinions thinking 'well, isn't this a movie a somewhat educated middle class white thirty year old would think was powerful or moving, or something something about the cinematography though I barely know what that means?' I don't trust it when I like a movie. But terrible movies aimed at stupid and terrible people, those I feel smug in recognizing that they are terrible. Ha! I can tell this…

    This film is all over the place. In most cases, films that have such stark tonal and formal shifts throughout don’t hit their marks. Jean-Pierre Jeunet, however, succeeds in most areas of the film. Starring the best and brightest French actors of this generation, the film is star-studded in a way that most can’t even touch. The large budget also provided for impressive battle scenes and pyrotechnics.

    These flourishes are welcome, but at the end of the day, it is…
