La Vie en Rose (La Mome) (2007)

"Edith Piaf has plenty of tragedy in her life, so the movie is dark and moody, but it's compelling and Marion Cotillard's performance is impossible to forget."

There Will Be Blood (2007)

The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (2007)

Le Scaphandre et le Papillon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) (2007)

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007)

"When they run out of clever ways to be funny, they fall back on their old standbys: crude, rude, nude, and lewd, which just shows that they didn't have enough material."

P.S. I Love You (2007)

The Valet (La Doublure) (2007)

"There are a few extra plot threads that feel like parking spaces that don't quite fit, but the story is squeezed in anyway. I'd still check out the valet."

Margot at the Wedding (2007)

Bella (Beauty) (2006)
