What's best about the movie is its playfulness.
A lovely, hopelessly romantic little bauble that catches the light no matter how you turn it.
an oddly amusing and touching work
It's a mish-mash of bits of old movies, but they've been wrapped up nicely.
The entire film hinges on the performances.
A smart, funny and touching film that's packed with symbolism while not seeming the slightest bit heavy or overly intellectual.
It is artfully directed by Leconte with his choppy camera work matching the Mediterranean's bubbly sea movements...
As an exploration of love, luck, and telepathy, The Girl on the Bridge is a beguiling film from start to finish.
It shows a lightness of style and a command of craft that make it a delectable treat, if not a terribly fulfilling one.
A young woman despondent with her life is interrupted during a suicide attempt by a knife thrower who talks her into becoming his new assistant. The Girl On The Bridge is a very typically Gallic romance, full of quirky characters and set within a framework of fate and the belief that some people are just "meant to be together". It's humorous fantasy that was a clear influence on Luc Besson when he made Angel A and features the usual concept of beautiful but insecure nymphet attracted to an older, uglier man in a way that seems rather touching instead of seedy and exploitative. The story begs the viewer to understand that Ms Paradis' apparent nymphomania is just a cry for affection and although this seems like a rather simplistic approach, the story has enough wit and charm to win you over. A pleasant piece of oh-so-very-French romantic fluff.
This is a love story for adults. The lovers' acting: impeccable. The music fits like a glove. The plot: they'll die without each other. This movie is filled with delightfully original ideas set in the surreal atmosphere of a circus, and who better than the French to pull that off? Tremendous tension, great dialogue, unique setting, and photography.
A charming and romantic film. It's shot with such wonderful precision, no shot is wasted. The black and white photography gives it a softer feel. The real brilliance comes in the romantic elements being downplayed. It's the kind of love that is mostly friendship, but could tip over at anytime. Any film involving a knife thrower, is bound to be good. Auteuil gives one of his best performances in an easily accessible film that transcends the usual clichÃ©d route.
A beautiful film. The conversation between Adele and Gabor when separated is wonderfully done, Auteuil was hillariously witty, the black and white effect was stunningly used and the ending was superbyl underdone.
