Movie Info

As part of an intergalactic coalition, a well-meaning space alien volunteers to bring a message of self-actualization and harmony with nature to the one planet rejected by all her peers as incorrigible--Earth. This family-oriented French sci-fi comedy chronicles her adventures on the chaotic planet. Mila is 150 years old and has five children; encoded in her brain are two telepathic programs designed to restructure the thinking of destructive humans. The first is a fairly mild program designed to inspire the humans to rethink their world and begin asking some difficult questions. The other is far stronger and rapidly indoctrinates subjects with lofty utopian ideals and makes them deeply aware of themselves. Mila lands in Paris and is unnoticed but for the sudden, inexplicable power surges and outages that occur whenever she sends a telepathic message to her alien cohorts. Instead of eating, Mila draws energy from holding newborn babies. It is while holding an orphan infant in an obstetrics ward that her Earthly troubles begin. Feeling deeply for the baby's plight, she confronts the ward's head doctor and when logic fails, looses her programs upon him. Instantly the unsympathetic brute sees the light and begins helping her save the babe from wicked welfare workers. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    <div align=center><b>LA BELLE VERTE (1996) directed by Coline Serreau starring Coline Serreau, Vincent Lindon. Marion Cotillard</b></div><p><div align=justify>Nobody ever wants to go to Earth. Its dirty and its inhabitants are kind of dumb too. Its been two hundreds years since one visited Earth, somebody really have to go this year. Mila is volunteer, cause apparently her mom was from Earth and she'd like to see the planet of origin of some of her ancestors. She meets a doctor whom she helps see things differently and help a nurse take care of a baby that would end up in a terrible orphanage otherwise.<p><i>La belle verte</i> is an unsual science-fiction comedy. It acts like its naive, but its actually pretty clever and its kind of a social critic. It has a sweet sense of wonder and a nice sense of humor.<p>The plot works as a sketche and some of the gags fail, but others are just hilarious. The acting is fairly good. Vincent Lindon is actually very funny and lets not forget an early performance from the always gorgeous Marion Cotillard. Its charming, quirky and refreshing, there isnt much more to say about it, except maybe that is works just fine.</div>
