Audience Reviews for The Horseman on the Roof

  • May 15, 2009
    This gorgeous movie was set in the cholera period which wiped out the whole of Europe in 10 days. Juliette Binoche, was gorgeous as ever. The thing about this movie though that it's seems to be a romance but you don't see it anywhere but just hints of it and feel the sexual tensions between the 2 main characters. Rather disappointing for some but it's that exact same formula which makes it such a beautiful movie to watch. To top it off, it was filmed in the French countryside which is so breathtaking that you could just watch the movie for the cinematography alone. All in all, it's a superb movie in the tradition of finely French costume dramas.
