    sometimes it's difficult to watch foreign movies, but not this one. light romcom and I find it pleasurable to hear French. Dujardin is charming. I can see why they call him French George Clooney

    Likeable and enjoyable French rom-com with just about the right amount of quirkiness.

    Dujardin shines as a successful architect who has to struggle with the prejudices against his dwarfism in love and everyday life. A credible, admirable, sometimes painful, tragicomedy

    A truly marvelous film. Sweet, charming and completely engaging, this wonderful little Franco-Belgium project starring the wonderful Jean Dujardin and Virginie Efira tells the sweet and common story of a wonderful man who has it all, except for his size. It's about the struggle that women have when confronted with everything that they want, except size. Perhaps it is because I have known several women who dismiss men who are not tall - or because I have heard so many times from women friends that the physical appearance of their men is so important to them that I find this film so captivating. Not the first time that such a topic has been covered in film, but a charming modern take with a frank exploration of this feeling. Set aside your critical tendencies and immerse yourself in this wonderful romantic comedy.
