This is a beautiful film, visually as well as in content. It is shot stylishly in black and white and has a very timeless classic feel to it, with a bursting jazz soundtrack and the main action centring around the antiquated art of knife throwing. Daniel Auteuil is perfect and completely convincing as the knife thrower who rescues Adele, a suicidal nymphomaniac, played by Vanessa Paradis, who is mesmerising in the title role. Gabor tells Adele that "the audience has to fall in love with you" and we all do. Every thud of the knife makes the pulse race, even when you know the outcome. In one gorgeous scene the pair do their act alone and it is so intimate and private but it's touching as well as sensual, which pretty much sums it up, beautiful, sexy and moving, one of the few romantic comedies that I like. There is only a slightly odd trailer.
