I would say that this was a pleasant surprise, but Audrey Tautou and Guillaume Canet are always excellent--at least in the films I have seen them in. I must also admit that I truly love French films and this one just reaffirmed my love for them. If you're looking for a good French romance film to add to your collection, I would suggest this one. I just love the characters and the story line and the romance isn't too cheesy like it is in some American romantic comedies. Definitely glad that I purchased this.
