Wherever you go, you'll find new knifes
I first watched this film with a friend at school during
a french A Level lesson and was so moved by it I decided to talk about
it for my oral examination. Every time I watch it I notice the tiniest
details, making my love of this magnificant piece grow with every viewing.
Through my research for my exam I discovered that out of the eight (if
I remember correctly) Cesar nominations it received, it won only one -
deservedly for best actor for Auteil, who play the part of Gabor to complete
perfection. Everyone must see this film - it is a work of true genuis
complimented by superb acting on the parts of both Auteil and Paradis.
A girl on a bridge is preparing to take her own life.
Adele (Vanessa Paradis) looks determined to jump but a passing stranger
offers her an alternative ending. Gabor (Daniel Auteil) is a circus act
on the search for an new assistant but is this where knife-throwers like
him find their new targets or is this just love at first sight?
Adele takes a gamble on fate and enters Gabor's strange but exciting world.
As a double act they breathe life into each other and rediscover good
fortune. With Gabor's skill and Adele's stunning looks they take their
act to the edge and are soon thrilling audiences across Europe.
Adele is in debt to Gabor for her new confidence in life and is sure
it will help her find Mr. Right. However, the moment they are apart, luck
deserts them and it is only now that they truly realize the effect they
had on each other. This is a unique, enchanting romantic comedy that leaves
a lasting impression.
