A good movie

Even though I don't live in France for already almost a decade (time goes by so fast!), I still like to watch a French movie from time to time. Before watching this one, I honestly never heard of it but since the ratings were pretty good, I thought I should give it a try.

A good movie

“Even though I don't live in France for already almost a decade (time goes by so fast!), I still like to watch a French movie from time to time. Before watching this one, I honestly never heard of it but since the ratings were pretty good, I thought I should give it a try.
