    Buscar. Las búsquedas son un remedo de nuestros propios olvidos. Buscamos lo que sabemos, intuimos no vamos a encontrar, y no queremos hallar. Sin embargo buscamos, no renunciamos. Esta es la historia de Audrey Tautou (Mathilde) y Gaspard Ulliel (Manech Langonnet). La fábula de una búsqueda y una espera que nació siendo un amor de niños que solo se tenían a sí mismos. Una espera que tiene a Mathilde como indiscreta fisgona en busca de su Manech, y a Francia…

    Finding Audrey Tautou to be an excruciating presence in any movie really hamstrings my enjoyment of this frivolous romance set against the futility and horrors of The Great War. Where others might have found her delusional limping around France eliciting sympathy in the aid of her deception to be charming I simply wanted pain to befall her at every step of the journey - that she doesn't crash to the floor whilst stood on tiptoes teetering on the edge of…

    Jean-Pierre Jeunet is one of my favourite directors, purely for the fact that he made my equal favourite movie of all time, Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain (aka Amélie). Not only that, but he makes some other pretty damn terrific films like this one, A Very Long Engagement.

    Does it hurt when you walk?

    Beautiful, poignant, resonant and shocking.

    These four words cannot fully capture the experience this film puts the audience through, but they come close.

    Beautiful: not only these superb French actors but the scenery, cinematography, the FOOD, it looks so good I could almost smell and taste it, I wanted to reach in to the frame and grab those glorious crepes, dip them into some scrumptious french cocoa, or whatever it was he was drinking.…
