It was a cute movie. Probably not something I'd watch over and over, but I liked it!

Sentimental and whimsical modern metaphor but simple tale, heartfelt and sincere. Precious and fragile script with master craftsmanship sheen and rhythm, stunningly shot particularly in its fantastical circus illusions. Force of nature performance by Gerard Depardieu, operating brilliantly on an emotional level.
