‘A heart-wrenching story’ – this was the first epithet that came to my mind almost as soon as I started watching the movie.
The image that accompanies the film made me think it would be a nice and funny story.
Nice it is but not in the least funny.
The film is very very sad but somehow in the end you feel high-spirited.
This is the story I have been looking for for a long long time.
I suppose only real life stories can be so touching.
And the music is terrific.
I’ve just found out that Alexandre Desplat, the composer, also wrote music to a number of other wonderful films like Harry Potter, the Painted Veil and The Twilight.
