Forbidden love
18 June 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I caught myself thinking, what is the character of Sophie Marceau doing with that older guy? And then I realized that the age gap, might not be as big as it "appears" to be. Sophie Marceaus looks are that incredible that they fooled me for a second. But it's not only about looks here. It's about much more.

The acting is on great level here and everyone involved really gets behind the story. A really good one, that has the central "what if" as a main point. You live your life and suddenly something (or in this case someone) comes up and throws you out of your usual "loop". As the movie says, you cannot be at all places at any time (or something to that effect), but where do you decide to be then? That's up to you (or the characters in that case) ... a different kind of love story, with a fresh take, which is good to see
