Cezanne et Moi traces the parallel paths of the lives, careers and passionate friendship of post-impressionist painter Paul Cezanne and novelist Emile Zola. The two boys grew up in Aix-en-Provence. Emile was fatherless and poor. Paul came from a wealthy family. As young men, dreaming of glory and beautiful women, they left the south to conquer the art scene in Paris. Soon Emile had it all, success, money, and the perfect wife, and embraced the very bourgeoisie he mocked in his books. Meanwhile, Cezanne rejected the Parisian scene to focus only on his work, ignored by his peers and the establishment.

I'm sure everyone will know by now that I love this film so much, but the reason I loved it so much was due to its simplicity. The acting is superb, the story is heart warming, and there's a great soundtrack. Also, the acting by both Tommy Wiseau and Tim Roth is perfect. Both actors are amazing in their performances. Also, the story and the dialogs were amazingly funny, especially by Tim Roth. It's actually like this is a film about a writer who writes a screenplay and then he creates the next movie. You can really see the struggle he's going through to make this movie. But because this is a film about a writer, you know that his life isn't always great. At first, he doesn't like his wife and he doesn't like his children. Then he starts to love his wife again and his children start to love him. The director did a great job of making the characters believable and interesting. You can really see the struggle that a writer goes through to create this masterpiece, and the person that he was to his family. Also, the scenes in the house and the party were really touching and a perfect example of what real life is like, especially for the people living there. Another great thing about the film is how it ends. The film ends with a big black balloon, but you don't see how it came about, so I really wonder how they made that in the film. Overall, this film is definitely the best film of 2008 so far and the best film I have ever seen. My favorite part is probably when the movie is talking about how the characters and the story was actually created by a writer. I can watch this film over and over again and I always have something new to think about. So if you like this film, check out 'The Room' and '300.' I just love 'The Room' and '300.'

Of all the great Hollywood biopics, this one is the closest to the original work in the sense that the actors all faithfully depict the characters. Christian Bale is very good as Theo, the innocent, sometimes mad, but always strong, but often naive, artist who doesn't mind changing his clothes to let him blend in with the crowd and all the fashions and fashion. Michael Caine is terrific as Colette, the strong, beautiful, romantic actress who's taken by the artist, especially when he shares his love for the elderly, but that begins to change, but then they become friends, and they gradually become lovers. Maggie Smith as the devoted, but reserved mother becomes very funny and sexy as she becomes captivated by Theo's charms. Other characters are interesting, too, especially one played by Edward Norton, the film's star. In fact, this is a film that not only celebrates one of the greatest achievements in cinema history, but it also puts an end to the long series of biopics starring the same actor about the same subject, even though the new ones are quite good. One of the main points of this movie is the beauty and grace of film-making, but the whole narrative is very moving and is just perfect.

You have to be in a certain mood to enjoy this film. While it might seem to me to be somewhat shallow and apathetic, you can't help but be drawn into the story and the characters. They are such strong characters, you feel like they are completely real, and in your own ways, you are the one who is here in the play. Whether you have any romantic feelings for the main characters or not, I feel you can still relate to them because of your own life experiences. It is a very realistic story about the alienation that occurs when someone in your family suffers from some kind of mental disorder. The characters in this film are also strong, and really show why they have had so much to deal with. The acting by all of the actors are very, very good, and I think the actors are all very real in their reactions to this film. They really are "so real" because of their personal and professional problems. I strongly believe that they are the most real people in the world, and I feel for them. I love this film, and if I ever get the opportunity to go to see it again, I definitely would do it. It is an amazing and beautifully written film about friendship, love, and tragedy. And yes, I know, everyone's experience in the film is different, but it does come down to the level of how the characters in the film respond to the film. I also think it is an excellent movie for children and adults. Not only do they get a story that most adults can relate to, but they also get to see a movie that people can really connect to. I think everyone should watch this movie at least once in their life. It is a very moving film, and for those of you who are not able to appreciate a movie because of a negative rating, don't let it put you off of watching this one. I feel very good about what I am saying because I think that the only reason I haven't given this film a 10 is because it does have some flaws, but all the other aspects are brilliant. This is definitely one of my favorite movies ever. Thank you.

Spielberg's style is really unique. It's got this quality that you feel is his own, that's why I'm asking for 10 stars. That's the only reason I gave it. It's very fast paced, very exciting, very raw, and I can say that even though it's really hard to judge the action scenes, the last 10 minutes of the film has a lot of meaning and meaning of just the storyline. I think, especially the third act is just too intense and very powerful, and if they could have spent more time on the story, they could have shown us more about Dora and Guglielmo. But even if the movie is bad, I like it because it's different. I don't really know how to explain this, but it's a lot of interesting and sometimes weird ideas. I recommend it for people who like realism. I feel like this movie is very important in the history of film making.

A gem of a film, so well done, so beautifully shot, so honest. All the characters are so fleshed out, all the young people so innocent and that there may be a better world. It really moved me. It showed a lot of current events happening in Quebec in a funny and funny way. The children's portrayal of the family is excellent, their innocence and their freedom. When the little girl looks back at her momma she feels that she is nothing special, but she has a lot of fun. The acting is great, in particular by Michelle, which I will never forget. She is a very talented actress, and her quiet character is filled with that real emotion we are trying to get through. Her parents really make us feel so bad for the family, because they are so loving, they make us want to join their families and that's why they are so famous. Michelle is one of those actresses, and I hope that one day we will have a generation of talented actresses in our movie industry. I truly loved this movie, it will be missed. We should all cherish films like this that teach us about the power of family and love. It's a must see.

Well, just for starters, the movie will surely impress the viewer and he/she will get a very good understanding on the artistic and artistic value of such a masterpiece. Besides, it also has an informative form of the explanation of why the director gives that treatment, such as the link between the explanation of his muse, her reaction and the form of her final image, or the explanation of how the Dutch have a very deep respect for the meaning of his works. In addition, this movie has a very thorough and totally accurate description of the creation of the painting and that there were many times when no idea was really wanted, but the desire of the director was only there to complete the project. This movie is one of those rare and must watch for the history and art lovers. To conclude, the director chose a very subtle and essential to communicate to the public the importance of the topic he chose and his passion for the artist. It is a beautiful film and also a documentary.

I have a very special gift. I can see this film. When I saw it, I said to myself, "This is so amazing. How can he make such a painting so complicated." I just want to watch this film again and again. The fight between the birds is so beautiful. The colors of the sky and the stones are so beautiful. The story is so strong. The mystery is so strong. The shadow on the wall is so beautiful. The bird that is in the window is so beautiful. The policeman who looks at the yard is so beautiful. The scene where the pigeon is playing with the little dog is so beautiful. These are really good and really unique and extraordinary pieces of art. I will never see the film again.

Ceremony's visuals are absolutely mesmerizing, with breathtaking, detailed renderings of the main character's daily life, from his room in the Art-House to his car on the way to his hometown. He is an artist whose works have been seen by millions of people, and yet he never tells his friends or family what he's going to do, and has one simple rule to the world. That is never to forget his sister. In this movie, the viewer is left to wonder whether it's a family movie or a story about Celine, a Parisian artist. It feels like you're getting closer and closer to the heart of a genius, and it's inspiring to see how he manages to build his life out of those who follow him, and to himself. The acting, the script, the photography, the score, and the film's heart all feel very well done. The ending is reminiscent of a Hitchcock film, with a powerful conclusion, and an unforgettable message about life, about love, and about self-realization. I would like to think that Celine would be proud.

This is a drama about a young man,who is considering to be a painter in Paris,when his mother dies and his father tells him that he is to be sent to the Naval hospital. Now he has the chance to finish his painting,by becoming a sailor. Everything happens so fast,so not all of it is real. But the atmosphere,the cinematography,the great music and the picture of France is so strong. This film is a masterpiece and a must for everybody who has an interest in art. It is a must for everyone who has a very good taste.

Claude Chabrol. One of the most influential French directors. In his last film,Cabaret - in collaboration with Claude,Corsican and Canadian actors - portrays two cases of the same type of childhood: a father who abandoned his family; and the boy's desire to become a painter. The boys' interests are completely opposite: the father is a real artist; and the child, a serious journalist, becomes a man of action only after the artist's death. One of the best films ever made. Loved it from beginning to end. The only thing I'm not so happy about is that it's one of the first "La Femme Nikita" movies in which the young actress is never quite naked. This means that she's not going to a very sexy look in the movie. It's just my own personal preference. It's a great shame, because I'd like to see more movies like this, featuring a lot of nudity. All in all, a very interesting movie. I recommend this to everyone who loves films, or at least to those who have a taste for them. By the way, Chabrol makes another film directed by American director: "The Movie", which is also great.

Good people can make great art. See this movie. I really did. I'll recommend this to anyone who has an interest in the 19th Century, Art, or Film-making. It's actually not a good movie, but it is so fascinating.

In 2002, I went to see Francis' new work Cézanne and Moi. The experience of the film was certainly a challenge, as it is the only one of the ten art films that has been made in such a short period. After watching Cézanne, it is hard to imagine that you will be able to watch this work in a cinema, because the project is so profound. The story, as it develops, is difficult to explain in words, but it can be summed up as follows: at the beginning of the century, a young woman, who is pregnant with her first child, leaves the family of her former lover, because he was not able to care for the child, and in her journey through Paris, she meets the sensuous Parisian people, and discovers a new world for herself, one of peace, beauty, serenity, and beauty. The film offers only a few brief examples, but it is easy to imagine the endless possibilities of the possibilities which exist at that time in Paris. The main problem is that this film is full of paradoxes, and is even paradoxically hard to understand. It is very difficult to understand what is going on in the film, but it is definitely worth it. This is an intense film, full of emotion. The main actors are very natural, and the young actors seem to be totally at ease with the way they speak in the film. If you are unable to understand the film, don't bother. You can leave the cinema with all the answers to all the questions that are supposed to be answered in the film, but it is really too much. If you are able to understand the film, you have a lot to say about it. This is a film that should be shown, it is absolutely an experience of a time, and an experience which I would have loved to have experienced. Every one of those people I have met at the show that I have been to for Cézanne and Moi, all had asked questions, and everyone that I have spoken to said, "That was great! That was a good film! I would have loved to have seen that at the cinema!" The film is well done, and I recommend it.

What a beautiful film! I liked it because it's about living in a time, and about emotions and love. Because love is something I find important, and the film shows it perfectly. The film is very much about time, and shows that life is a paradox. What do we do if we are young? Why do we work in a factory? But then what? It is so random. It is one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. I think it should be on the top 250 films of all time, because it's so beautiful and it shows the state of our times. The film is such a great romance. It shows the love of youth and the sorrow of a wife and children. It is about the love of the mother and the son, but also about the father. It shows how everything changes after a divorce, and how everything is between the people of the village and the ones that are younger than them. When I was young, I was pretty bad, but now, thanks to the film, I know that love is something that everyone has. Everything we do, we learn from our lives and learn to live it. Life is hard. Love is hard. No matter how we live it, love will be there. I think this is one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen.

First of all, I must say that I am a huge fan of this film and I'm glad that it is available on DVD. However, if you didn't like it because it was so cut down, but you're a complete genius, you're not. The movie is almost non-existent, a full time documentary, with bits from many sources, like the Diary of Vampyres. But the most interesting is the battle with Sawney Belfry, it's a picture of how an artist lives in a time, a century or two, and when we take a certain life, we must not forget the people we love. Anyways, what I mean is, I can't even give a good reason to say that this is a great film, because it is. I do appreciate this movie a lot, it's a lot better than any other movie I have ever seen. But I'm a total person who's never really said a negative thing about other movies. So, I just give it a perfect score. 10/10

I have to say I am not impressed with this movie but I am still pleasantly surprised to see that so many people liked it. The photography and the acting of Caro are simply superb, the story is touching, it makes you feel what the artists felt, and you will be moved by it all. It is the first movie to take the so-called art of Cinematography and Pictures as its main subject and then make it film as such, i.e. painting, etc. However it is really a good film that should be seen and perhaps being a good film, just a good film, it will make you feel good and be drawn in to the art of it all. I am happy to see the recognition of this masterpiece, by critics, and I would like to recommend it to everyone. I'm sad to say that a film like this should not get a remake because there is nothing to compare with it. Every minute detail, every little gesture, everything makes a greater impact, i.e. "In Praise of Love" is an utterly brilliant film but it is not a remake. The most amazing thing is that this film is totally in its own league and nobody can say it is not a great film.

This movie is remarkable for its cinematography, sound, and use of color. It's a dream, but not for the animation artists, it's for the painter. This is what I like to call the skill of cinematography and the art of painting, instead of the work of the engineer. The colour palette is rich and contrasting the black and white world. The most telling image is the one of the early morning view of the white sky and the blue of the sea. It is an image that shows how colors can tell a story in their own right. A film has to tell a story, or it can be purely visual, and it's been done in a way that I have never seen done. It is like painting, a kind of storytelling where it doesn't need any dialogue, or any music, or any actors. What a challenge for the art of film-making that is! This movie should be placed at the same level as movies like "The Last Picture Show", "The Long Goodbye", and "The Fifth Element" for the art of film-making. Well done. I recommend this film for everyone. I would put it at the top of my list.

I really enjoyed watching this movie. It is a small piece of the life of a world-renowned painter. The story of each one is interesting, giving us a piece of life that we will never forget. The colors in the painting represent color in our world today, giving us a different perspective to a wonderful picture. The color of the paintings themselves is a beautiful color that adds the life to the pictures. The colors of the picture make us feel like that little piece of the world that each one of us lives in. Each painting is a special piece of art, and we all remember our favorite picture. The depth of the painting adds to the sadness and emotion that each of us must feel. This movie tells us that life is beautiful, and that life can never be empty.

It's a film about a family. But it is more than a film. It is a way of life. From start to finish, it feels like you are following the characters as they live their lives in their own way. You feel as if you are with them and this is really what you need. This film has some beautiful moments and some scenes that really get you thinking. Every scene has something to say, and it does not matter whether you are French or not. This film gives you all you need to know about France and how it treats people and how it treat's each other. It has one of the best endings ever seen, that is unexpected. For me it is a great film, which has an interesting story, and a lot of humor. But above all, it has an amazing cast, and really brings you in the movie. Without this, the movie would have been hard to watch, but now, I watch it and I can say it was one of the best films I have ever seen. But if you don't like movies, don't watch this. If you have never seen it, it will make you change your mind. 10/10

This film is one of the best I have seen for many reasons. Firstly, it is a great film of character development. The pacing and making the story move is flawless. The character development is full of nuance and meaning, sometimes for the audience to try and figure out and sometimes for the characters to be able to figure out themselves. This is a film that is not for everyone, because of its complexity. But it has a definite look and feel to it, and the photography is incredible. It is also beautiful to watch the different periods and the different planes of the film. The music is also incredible, blending in and out of the scene very well and creating a very good contrast. I really enjoyed this film and it is definitely one that I will be recommending to everyone I meet.

This was a film that really got my attention. It is a magnificent film and it is a wonderful piece of art. The music is amazing. Everyone should see this film. It's probably one of the best films that I have ever seen. I give it a 10 out of 10.

With this film, Jacques Audiard managed to take a series of historical figures and heaped them on to the theme of "Gentlemen de la France", without leaving out the facts that one could trace their origins to the people who played a major role in the founding of the country, in particular the Greek and Russian conquerors who occupied the Rhone valley, along with the Venetian soldiers who took advantage of the naive freedom and nobility of the common people in order to rule them. The result of this mixture is a film that is a mosaic of many different times and people, of a few things that may seem insignificant, and of a lot that remains consistent. Perhaps this is not a film that can be easily compared to any other, because the films are not meant to be, and neither does the director want it to be, while there is still a clear sense of what the director is trying to convey. In the tradition of Hitchcock, this film is as meticulous as the Hitchcock films that inspired it, and the focus is on that, while Audiard was not interested in sensationalized things, he was interested in the subjects and the feelings. On this basis, I have come to the conclusion that this is a wonderful film, based on a very sensitive script that does not feel repetitive, at least not in the first two and a half hours of the film. I have to say that I enjoyed the first two and a half hours of the film, but I came to the conclusion that the problem is that this film doesn't have the freedom to breathe. It tries to be a Neapolitan for the English-speaking audience, and even a little bit of it is. The other elements are very similar to Hitchcock, like the hypnotized, unhappy people in a post-revolutionary French society, but the director is not interested in creating a pre-Hitchcock for an English-speaking audience, he has his own vision, and as I said, he is very careful to not give too much away. The result is a film that is a masterpiece, and I can only wonder if there will ever be a "Moulin Rouge", when a film is still an art and not just a film. 10/10

I loved this film. It was by far my favourite film of the last decade. I have seen it several times and I will continue to watch it whenever I have the opportunity. The performances were incredible. Everyone in the film played their role perfectly, with very little dialogue. I find it amazing that this film has such a small film festival. It should be recognized as one of the great films of our generation. I would give this film the "10" it deserves, without hesitation. There are so many films that are worthy of such recognition, but they have been overlooked. It is a rare, historic film that deserves to be watched, not overlooked. Thank you Anne Hathaway for making this film a very real, engaging experience.

I came across this film because the only other film I could find that had been nominated for Best Picture and it was a French film. I had heard the Oscar nominations were coming and after viewing this film I feel like I didn't miss a thing. There was a lot to like about this film. The acting was superb, especially the mother. Michel Gondry does a great job of portraying her and I thought his portrayal of the mother was even more emotionally rich than Gondry's previous work. And what was with all the crying? It seemed to just be a function of the film, but it certainly was at the end of the movie. This film is about two sisters whose mother is dying of cancer. One of the sisters wants to find someone to care for her while the other one wants to run away from her home and start a new life. I thought this movie had a great message about the importance of family. It also showed a variety of different personalities that come from different places in society. Like the mother and the nurse, one is kind and nice and the other is a strong woman that lives with a lot of hardships and stress. She also comes from a family with a lot of problems that make her even more chaotic and unstable. The scene in the end when the mother talks about the past was sad, but very moving. I thought it was a perfect ending to a movie that I had no expectations about. Overall, I thought this movie was wonderful. I thought that the acting was also great. The two sisters are so incredibly believable and emotional that you really feel like you're looking at real life. This movie is about life, family, and caring for others. But in the end I can't help but think that it was beautiful. I give this film a 10 out of 10 and think it's one of the best films I have ever seen.

I just love this just is a great love story.the atmosphere is great, the acting is great, the characters are great, the love story is great.there is no words to describe it.a great movie.for me i recommend it. the film is a fantastic love story about a young boy named Charles de Gaulle.he is in love with a French girl named Clementine,a French woman who works for a famous French newspaper.this movie shows us that love can happen between any nationality.a young boy who loves the beautiful Clementine falls in love with Charles,the french, who does not understand the concept of love.a beautiful French woman who works for the newspaper falls in love with a young French boy named Charles de Gaulle.i was really surprised by this.the director was at his see the beautiful Clementine's face every time Charles walks see Charles' face every time Charles walks by.the beauty of Clementine is so special to me, and her beauty is so special to Charles.he loves her like a real French man should love Clementine.the beautiful Clementine is the one who lives in my heart.she is the one who represents to me the feeling of love for life.the young Charles de Gaulle, i see him as a little kid and see him as a young man.he is so beautiful to see, he is such a great talent.his talent was born out of love for the Clementine.the french person who is the girl who works for the newspaper (french) falls in love with the boy, whom Charles do not know.this makes him fall in love with Clementine, who is so much like him.there are many other stories in this film, you may see it yourself.but there is only one of Clementine and Charles.the French feel affection for Clementine and Charles.and the French and the French are so is so romantic and it is so beautiful.
