Betty must be the most passionate and firey person on the planet and she turns our heros life upside down. When she finds he has written an unpublished manuscript she drags him from his small town existance accross the country on a mission to get it published.Never taking no for an answer Betty gets them into all sorts of trouble but also makes him feel incredibly alive.
There is an abundance of Life,zest,emotion and tragedy in Betty Blue. Once picked up i couldn't put it down.
A fantastic film - see it to believe it.
The book? Even better - brilliant! A book I found hard to put down. Anyone who had felt true love for another inspite of everything that is going on around them will understand this book - live it, and breathe it. Fantastic!
Why, oh why, oh why are there no more books translated into English! I will have to learn French!
