5.0 out of 5 stars At last I found you!! 14 July 2008
Format:DVD
Like the other reviewers I saw this film years ago, late one night, on my own. It just stayed with me and for years I looked for it and told my friends about it. I was so pleased to find it and share it with my husband who despite not liking romantic type films thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, the plot is far fetched but I forgive that for the brilliance of Daniel Auteuil and Firmine Richard.What a wonderful but unlikely pairing, which works. The warmth of the film is wonderful. Watch it and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and uplifting. 17 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
Imagine Romeo and Juliet with out all the tragedy and here you have Romuald Et Juliette a film about love crossing the classes - he is a slender, elegant, upper middle class business man, pampered from his elegantly coiffured head to his italian leather clad toes, he doesn't know the meaning of self sacrifice and she is Afro-french mother of many with not enough hours in the day to think about her self, she is a "make do and mend "sort of woman - their lives seem destined never to cross until the day she uncovers a scheme to frame him for the collapse of the company he chairs. Together they unravel the plot and in the process fall in love, he learns how to care of others and she learns how to be cared for.

I hunted high and low for this film for years, harassing anyone who set foot in France to see if they could buy it for me and finally it has been released.

If you enjoyed Amelie and are looking to dip your toe further into the pool of French cinema I highly recommend this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem 16 Feb 2009
By lovemurakami TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I was given this as a gift from a good friend for christmas. It's one of her favourites and she thought I might like it, and guess what I loved it. It's a gentle comedy/love story which also allows us to see the world from 2 different viewpoints. Firmine Richard and Daniel Auteuil are both superb and the supporting cast are excellent and who can't fall in love with her wonderful family. It reminded me of the early Capra comedies which Hollywood no longer seems to be able to produce. Look out for Firmine Richard in the great 8 women and Daniel Auteuil in lots of things but especially La Reine Margot an absolutely fantastic film.

5.0 out of 5 stars To take the blues away 17 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am so delighted oher reviewers feel the same way as I do about Romuald and Juliette.I first saw it in 1990 on a late night television slot and spent ages trying to find the video in the UK, which I finally sourced at a shop in the National Theatre arts complex. I have watched it about twice a year when I want to be cheered up. I too ahve givfen away copies. I now have the DVD. Of course it is a fantasy where class, race (and weight) barriers are crossed and it would not happen in real life, not all three anyway! Movies take you into another world and this fairy story does just that. If only life were like this. It is pacey, funny and brilliant and the actors do the story justice, and Firmine Richard is just lovely and gorgeous. Hollywood would not know how to handle such a story. This movie will take the blues away.

4.0 out of 5 stars feelgood french farce 22 Dec 2007
By J. Ball
Format:DVD
It's a gentle feelgood film, perfect if you are looking for a bit of stylish light entertainment.
Totally unbelievable, but that's the beauty of cinema!
Usually i don't enjoy this level of sentimentality in a film but it worked for me, i was just thinking what a mess Hollywood would have made of the same script.

5.0 out of 5 stars a couple of hours of pure delight! 22 Mar 2008
By emac
Format:DVD
This film is captivating, warm, funny and an absolute tonic. Like other reviewers, I've waited for years for it to appear on DVD, meantime hanging onto a beaten up video copy. Just treat yourself, buy it, settle down and enjoy a taste of gentle humour, unlikely events and 100% joie de vivre. Then spend the rest of the day (or longer) smiling!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Fairytale 19 July 2010
Format:DVD
Delightful well-paced film starring the always excellent Daniel Auteuil, with the sort of silly story which is totally believable while you watch it. Heart warming, it leaves you wishing the world were really like that. A film to cheer you up !

It wasn't a bad film but a bit slow to start. A typical funny love story but probably aimed at a younger audience. A little bit cheesy but worth a watch
