    Despite the French/Spanish audio language barrier substituted for English subtitles, this slow movie just out of curiosity alone will have you fixed in front of the screen until the final take. Totally out of this world awesome twists of a man (Victor Cassell) almost ready to tie the knot until he inadvertently runs into an old love flame (Monica Bellucci). This continuous romp in search of her throws in characters into the constantly twisting storyline that never lets you down. The final scene in this movie will have you wondering in the end...whether he will ever find her or will he walk down the matrimonial aisle...and with whom? Please see this if you definitely want for your brain to be turned out!! :-)

    A brilliant French film that dazzles by its complexity. Given the intrinsic similarities between certain characters, it can be hard to keep up, especially in French, but it's not too difficult. It's complicated enough to really engage the audience but not difficult enough to get you too lost. Brilliant acting, Cassel should be far more admired then he is.

    It was a perfect noir movie. Just awesome... Still don't have any intention to watch Wicker Park, though.

    Finally I got the chance to see the movie that Wicker Park is a remake of. It tells one of the best love stories ever and I was very impressed by Wicker Park. The script to L' Appartement is amazing, and Gilles Mimouni should ofcourse have all the credits for this, but Wicker Park is better executed. At least I think so, it's hard to know what the effects are when you watch two almost identical films. Maybe I would have liked L' Appartement better if I had seen it first. Needless to say, I know, but Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci pulls these rolls off flawlessly. For me, this is a fantastic movie, that has an even better remake.
