It is one of the best movies I have ever seen. But if you are not a fan of Shakespeare, you won't like it. The plot is based on the English legend of a love affair between King Arthur and the mythical Queen Guinevere. Guinevere, an illegitimate daughter of King Arthur, decides to take her lover, Prince Arthur, to Brittany, to see if he is really as he seems. The movie takes place in the 13th century. The people who live there are neither Roman Catholic nor Muslim. They have no religion and are led by a philosopher named Macha. Macha is a wise man and gives advice to everyone. He has a son called Leander and a son of his own, called Adam. Leander is the son of a man who works at the royal court and, when the king dies, Leander is asked to take over. Adam is a prince of the royal court. He is the son of the king and a son of the chief woman, Dorian. He was formerly in love with Guinevere, and when he is sent to Brittany to take over his father's kingdom, he is discovered to be a man and falls in love with Guinevere. Macha has a plan to make the two lovers marry. But he fails, and the couple stay together. Adam is left alone and does not know what to do with his life. A few years later, Leander is able to leave the country and finds himself as a penniless farmer in Brittany. He is able to survive thanks to Macha, and he finds himself in the same position as Leander. But Macha will not allow Adam to leave the country and live in Brittany. He sends a man to seduce Leander and he agrees to marry Adam. Adam does not know what to do and he goes to live with Dorian, who is the chief woman of the village. But Dorian is not in love with Adam and she does not like Adam to leave the country. When Adam arrives in Brittany, he is unaware that Dorian and Macha are planning to marry him. Adam, who is in love with Dorian, has to choose between the two. If he does not marry Dorian, he will be thrown into the sea. If he does marry Dorian, he will be murdered. Adam is in a dilemma. He knows that Dorian will never give up the plan and he has to decide. He decides to marry Dorian and he dies. Dorian also decides to marry Adam. They fall in love and they live happily ever after. It is a film that is as beautiful as it is tragic. The cinematography is stunning and the story is fascinating. It is a brilliant film. There are many things that will make you think and leave you speechless. I do recommend it. 8.9/10

I first saw this movie when it came out and I was totally sucked in by the beauty of it. This movie is an all time favorite and I have watched it over 20 times. The acting, the directing, the music, everything. I loved it!

A great look at one of the great stories of all time, and the life of a world-famous author. Quite simply, it's a must see.

This is a very good film. I saw it at the Chicago Film Festival and I really liked it. I thought it was a good story and the acting was very good. I thought the music was great. The music was very good and I think that they should have done a musical version of the film. It was a great film and I would recommend it.

I was a big fan of the book, and was very happy that this movie got made. I went to see it with a friend who is a die-hard book fan, and we both enjoyed it immensely. I especially liked the musical interludes, and the action scenes. It was really nice to see all the details and things that were added for the film. If you like the book, I would highly recommend this movie.

Saw this movie years ago. Some of the actors are still in my memory. A true drama. But this one has a certain beauty. The language is not so difficult to understand, and the story is the main thing. Although the movie is long, it makes a perfect portrait of the main characters. The actors give a great performance, especially Madelaine Clark (of all people, at the end, she has a better voice than any of the actors in the movie). The story is great, the language is perfect and the scenery is very beautiful.

The name Peter Weir is synonymous with the best films of the nineties. He's a director who has an almost completely different style of film-making from Hollywood. It's very unusual for a director to make his own films and to release them without all the added bells and whistles. That's how much the director really cared about the quality of the film. His films are seldom commercially successful and the reason is that he's not willing to accept the status quo. He makes films that will always be looked back upon with fond memories for years to come. His latest film "Odd Couple" is a perfect example of this. "Odd Couple" is a contemporary remake of a classic film that has been thoroughly loved by audiences for decades. It's a wonderful remake of the classic tale of a young French officer named Cyrano de Bergerac. The story was adapted by the great English playwright Stephen Dedalus, who was also the writer of "Othello" and "Othello and the Emperor's New Clothes". The original play was written by the acclaimed playwright William Shakespeare. The film is a modern remake of the film "Othello" and that film was a huge success at the box office. The acting is superb and the music is also excellent. The film is beautifully shot and all the sets and costumes are wonderful. The film is well worth seeing and I strongly recommend it.

I have watched the Olivier Award-winning film "Cyrano de Bergerac" several times. I have enjoyed the film immensely. The cinematography and sound effects were excellent. My only complaint is the casting of the actors. I found one of the actors, who is white, to be very over the top. I found her to be very distracting. This is not something you will see in a lot of movies. The music, the acting, and the score were all excellent. This is not one of those movies you watch just to find out if it was good or not. I will be watching this movie again, and again, and again. Highly recommended.

I went into this film without having any interest in it and was surprised by it. I watched it twice and actually found it a bit more interesting than I thought. This movie has it all. It is a visually stunning movie with the best production design and editing I've seen. The actors are incredible in this film. I was especially impressed by Jude Law's performance as Emile. I have to say that the movie is more political than I expected it to be, but it also has an interesting take on the love story, and does a great job showing it in a way that it doesn't try to force the point of the love story. The only real problem with the film is the two actors who play Cyrano and Emile, and that is the production design. They seem very lifeless and kind of over-done. It makes the film seem like a series of shots rather than a movie. Overall, I really liked this film and would highly recommend it.

I was so excited to see this movie because I am a big fan of Cyrano de Bergerac. I loved it. The acting was excellent and the scenery was breathtaking. This is definitely worth seeing. I don't understand why people can't appreciate this movie. It's a great movie. I think it's a great movie for anyone who loves history or loves a good movie. I really recommend this movie.

I have just watched this on DVD, and I am glad that I did. This is a wonderful film and it is a great example of how modern film-making can be. Its a good film for everyone, and I will definitely recommend it to my friends. The film is centered around the famous novel by the great French novelist, Georges Simenon, who would go on to become a legendary author in his own right. This film has some really great supporting characters that really shine. There are some great dialogues that make this film an instant classic, and I can't say that enough about it. To start, we have the main character, the doctor, played by the great Bruno Ganz. Ganz has done an excellent job with the role, giving a very genuine, and raw performance that you can't help but feel. The rest of the cast is amazing. Catherine Deneuve is also incredible. She is a great actress and gives a wonderful performance here. She has just a little bit of difficulty with the language but she is really great in it. It is difficult to pick a favorite character. There are so many great ones in this film, and none of them should be overlooked. I have to mention just a few: Mathilde, the beautiful, beautiful girl who is the love interest of Cyrano; the girl in the forest; Mathilde's brother, and Cyrano himself. This is a great movie, and I highly recommend it. I give this movie an 8 out of 10.

I didn't even know it was a film until I watched it in a cinema. The film is about the legendary first book of the famous Perrault cycle. This film is not about the book at all, it is about the book as a whole. It is a story about two men and how they come to the knowledge that they are the same person. One is a man named Denis who in fact is a composite of two people. He believes he is one of two people and Denis is the other. And this knowledge leads them to the hunt for the man. There is some drama as Denis and the man come to know each other, but it is not a drama, the film is not a drama, and the film is not a film. It is a film about two men, but not two men. I believe that this is one of the best films of the 2000's. The film has an amazing cast. One of the best actors in the world is one of the best actors in the world, and he is François Cluzet. He is not a great actor but he is a great actor. I love the way he talks, his voice, his face, his expression. I was very surprised that I liked the way he spoke in this film. One of the best films of the 2000's. 8/10

The acting is great. The story is the most compelling of the year. It is a great movie to watch with family. It is a great movie to watch with friends.

Grave of the Fireflies is an interesting movie. It's not the first "witty" portrayal of war, but it does a good job at telling the story of the two main characters, a young orphan named Leopold and his deaf-mute cousin, who are forced to live in a French commune, with their whole life-time surrounded by French people. I enjoyed it very much. It's a story about friendship and loyalty, and about how one thing can change everything, even the smallest of things. In some ways, it's a story about growing up, and of how one person can change a lot. It's a good story, and a good watch.

After watching this movie I immediately made my own version of this movie. It is a movie based on the book written by Joaquin Phoenix, not like the movie directed by Bryan Singer. The movie is like the book without the actual storyline. I watched it over and over again and loved it. It was awesome and I hope you do too. The movie is about the life of Paris as a man from France, who has been living in England for the past 20 years. He meets Sophie and her family in England and soon the two start to fall in love. The movie is full of emotion and is really hard to watch. The movie is a must see for anyone who loves romance or drama movies.

I enjoyed the film because it is based on a book, which in turn was based on an actual historical event. It's a movie about a poor boy named Cyrano de Bergerac who was orphaned at a young age. He was brought up by his uncle who taught him to read and write and to fight. When he is 16, the uncle dies and he lives with his aunt and cousin, who are working class farmers. He becomes a professional soldier and starts to take part in the French army and ends up becoming a famous general. The movie is very interesting because it's based on true events. The movie was well acted by all of the cast members. It was also well directed, although I thought the film could have been longer. The cinematography was fantastic. I thought the use of color was great, especially when it was darker in the film. The costumes were great too, although I thought the black coats were a little over the top. The editing was good too. I thought the main characters of the story were very interesting and their personalities were interesting. I thought the director was able to tell the story very well. The film was very good, and I would recommend it to anyone who liked the book or the film.

I have never seen this film before, so I can't say how much I enjoyed it. But I think it is definitely worth watching. The performances are all very good, especially Gerard Depardieu as Clemenceau and Colin Firth as H.R. The main problem is that the story line is very weak and doesn't do much to make you care about the characters. But it is good enough to keep you watching the whole time. It's not always easy to say which scenes are good and which are bad, but at the end I can't say that I like the film very much. It's not very clear. But if you like the films of Michael Haneke or John Turturro, I recommend it to you.

I had been looking forward to seeing this movie for a while, and then I went and saw it. I thought it was good, and the English dub is kind of a letdown, but then again I like the American dubs. I am more into the Portuguese dubs, so I wasn't too bothered with the English dub. I did think it was good, but I'm glad I didn't pay to see it in theaters. I am glad I finally got to see this movie on DVD. It is the movie I had been looking for. I will definitely be buying it when it comes out on Blu-Ray. I have heard that this is the last film they make with Joseph Fiennes in it. I think he is a great actor, and I hope they continue with him in the future. In my opinion, this movie is better than most, and the music is fantastic. It is a beautiful film, with wonderful performances from all of the actors. The story is excellent, and I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies about French history.

This is the longest of the three films I have seen of the Olivier Theatre production of Cyrano de Bergerac. A reviewer referred to it as "the most important play in the history of the theatre" and I think that is apt. This is the story of a man who was sent to prison for his part in the assassination of King Louis XIII of France. He has always insisted that his prison sentence was a form of persecution and the play is a reflection on the persecution that people have suffered for centuries. There is an interlude of the play during the torture of the prisoners, but there is no focus on that. The play is played in the normal fashion of the theatre with the actors doing a play as it was done by the actors. This film is a study of the play with the actors doing the play. There are some moments of darkness and tension, but the focus is on the actors and how they carry out the play. It is a drama and the actors carry it out. The film is also a study of the play itself and the question of whether it is possible to play a play on stage or not. It is also a reflection on the impact of the play on the actors. The film does not do justice to the play and the actors are not given enough room to carry out the play. The film does not show the reaction of the king to the play. There are some moments when it is clear that the king is not happy with the play, but this is not shown. There are some scenes of violence and the violence is very intense. In the end, I liked the film, but it was not perfect.

This is an interesting and thought-provoking film. The film is beautifully shot, with beautiful and carefully selected locations and locations chosen for their historical importance. It is also beautifully shot, with a lot of beautiful shots of Paris. The film is filled with beautiful photography, but the only thing I would have done differently was to remove the music score, which is intrusive and distracting. It is very difficult to tell a story without music, especially when the music is so heavily used. I don't think the music was the problem, but rather the film itself. It is too long and boring, and the film has no flow. The story is not always coherent. The only part I found to be good was when the characters were talking to each other in French. I found the dialogue to be very good and engaging. The acting is very good, especially by Olivier Assayas, who is incredible. I was also very impressed by the performance of Ewen Bremner, who is usually terrible in movies. The only part of the movie that I found to be lacking was the last ten minutes. I found that the story was dragging and that the ending was very rushed. Overall, this is a great film. I think it is a great film, but it is very long and slow and the music score is very distracting. It is a great film, but it is not a great film.

Saw this film on DVD last night and am amazed at how much I enjoyed it. I felt it was a great way to spend an evening watching something that is not necessarily well known. I found the film to be very good, with a great story, wonderful actors, beautiful scenery, and a script that was really very good. I found the story to be very original, I was impressed with the actors, and the scenery was beautiful, very appealing. I had never seen a movie that made me feel I was on a magical journey, I have a weakness for movies about women that make me feel like I am on a magical journey. I really enjoyed this film, it was not predictable, and I found it to be very emotional, as I was moved by the story. This is one of the few movies I have seen that really made me feel, I can't say I liked the other two, but I am definitely going to buy this one, and I have already ordered the other two. The movie had a wonderful ending, it was really moving, and I really liked how the actors portrayed the characters, it was very well done. This is a movie that is very well worth seeing, and I strongly recommend that you go see it, I really loved it.

The book was great. It made me feel like I was in the country of the book. The movie is better than the book. The movie has a great story and I liked that it was directed by the great Michael Almereyda. The actors did a great job in the movie. If you have read the book, you will love the movie. It is a must see. It is a great family movie.

I have watched this film numerous times, and I still love it. The plot and acting are brilliant. I've seen this film many times, and I can always find something new to enjoy. I love the Italian film style, and this movie's also great, because it has a lot of color, and a lot of color is in this film. I highly recommend this movie.

I really loved this movie. It is not a movie for everyone. It is a movie about a man who lived in a time when people used to be more or less slaves. They were afraid of their own government and all of their enemies. This movie is about a man who was a slave. He was afraid of the police, his own government, and all of his enemies. He was afraid of all of this, and he lived with it. This is one of the most fascinating movies I have ever seen. The music is great, the acting is great, and the story is great. I do not know why people have such a bad thing against this movie. It is a great movie, and it deserves to be seen by everyone. I give this movie an 8 out of 10.

I saw this film at the Toronto Film Festival, where I was at the screening of more recent work by Rolf de Heer. It was excellent, and while I'm a huge fan of Robert Bresson, I was surprised by the sophistication of the director's work. A rather abstract film, it is a labor of love and clearly a labor of love on the part of the actors. The performances are excellent, especially from Kristen Scott Thomas and Eric Stoltz. I'll have to watch it again to get a full sense of the film's visual beauty.

There are two things that are strange about this film. The first is that I found it to be slow-moving. There are numerous scenes that seem to last forever. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing. The second is that this film is a little heavy on the dialog. The dialog is fine, but some of it is a little off-putting. I don't want to say anything about the plot because it is not important, but I have to say that the plot is a little underwhelming. It is hard to know where the film is going, and I didn't really care for the characters. This is not a bad film by any means, but I would have preferred a little more action. I liked the score, which helped me relate to the characters in the film.

So far the best of the so called "French New Wave" movies. Director Jacques Demy has mastered the art of non-verbal communication. The story is very moving and if you have not seen it, go and see it ASAP. It is a must see.

What is most interesting about the movie is that you get the sense that it has a lot to say about the world, and many of its people. As a viewer, the movie takes you on a journey of the West, with some of its problems and people, and some of its attitudes, attitudes, and attitudes. You get a sense that the people in the movie are ordinary people, just trying to get by. But they're also ordinary people, and that's what makes it so interesting. You get a sense that the movie tries to tell you that life is complicated, and the best way to understand it is to look at it as an ordinary person would. So the movie is a bit more complex than you might think, and a bit more real than you might think. You can understand it, and you can really feel it.

I was only interested in seeing this movie because it had such a high rating and I didn't want to miss it, but I was surprised that this movie actually ended in a dramatic way. I actually found this movie quite emotional, and the way it ended had me in tears. The movie is full of emotions, and I could feel it for the whole movie. It is hard to believe that a movie like this could be made. I believe that this movie is worth watching and that you should take the time to watch it.

I really wanted to love this movie. I went to the theater to see it and I was anxious to see it, and I really wanted to like it. I had a hard time going in with any kind of preconceived notions. First of all, I went in with my girlfriend who is not that big of a Cyrano fan. I tried to persuade her to go with me, but she couldn't go. I really couldn't bring myself to tell her to go with me because it seemed like she would be too taken aback by the way the movie was made. But after seeing the movie, I was convinced that she was totally right. I felt that the whole movie was an exercise in making the audience believe that what was happening on screen was real, but in reality was really just a projection of the artist's imagination. It is a movie about the creative process, but the movie also lets the audience witness a real, humanistic, experience. It really gives you a lot of insight into what it is to be a writer. I have been a writer for over 15 years, and this movie really showed me what I need to be a writer. I was also really impressed by the way the director and writer were able to capture a real sense of realism, as if they were really in the place, experiencing the real events and feelings of the characters. You can see that the actors really took the characters seriously. I think the actors were also a huge part of the success of the movie. This movie was an art piece that was made with some real talent, and it really captured the audience's attention. It also seemed like the director and writer really worked to make the movie as good as possible, and the movie really worked in every way. I really enjoyed this movie, and I think I will buy it on DVD as soon as it comes out. It is definitely not one of my favorite movies, but I still think it is a great movie. This movie really deserves a lot of praise, and I think you will love it too.

In my opinion, it is the best film I have ever seen. I could watch this film over and over again, and I would never get bored. The acting is amazing, the scenery is amazing, and the music is amazing. The film is a true masterpiece. It is one of the greatest films ever made. I highly recommend it. I hope it will win the Oscar.

This is a good movie. The director was able to pull off a great story. This is the kind of movie that you can watch over and over again. The cinematography was beautiful. The story was very interesting and it was well done. The acting was great. It was very realistic and the actors were very believable. This is a great movie that you can watch over and over again.

This is a film that is a must-see for all fans of the novel. The story is pretty much identical to the book and this is one of the reasons that I think the film is so good. The film is very well done and is extremely well-done. The acting is excellent and the scenes are beautifully shot. The only problem I had with the film was that it could have been a little longer. However, the film is well worth watching and is well worth the money to see it.

I was going to say that this movie was great, but I don't want to give anything away. I watched this movie because it was on TV and I wanted to see it. It's a very interesting movie. I liked it, and I thought it was good. It's a little long at 1 hour and 41 minutes, but that's OK. I thought it was well-done. It's not the best movie I've ever seen, but it's not the worst either. It's definitely a movie you should watch.
