This movie, powerfully directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Black Hawk Down), tells the story of a village blacksmith (Orlando Bloom) who, very simply, wishes to make the world better than he found it and in the process, obtain redemption for past misdeeds. This epic film takes us on a journey, a pilgrimage, from medieval France to the Holy Land of the Crusades and back again. During this journey we learn about the power of personal choice and that ultimately, we and we alone are responsible for our actions. Magnificent cinematography combined with superlative acting make this movie irresistible and it is higly recommended to everyone over the age of 18 (due to violence and certain unsettling depictions).

This movie is in black and white, but it is still worth watching. It examines the beginning of the war in Europe and the fall of France and the beginning of the French resistance. The performances are excellent and the plot is intriguing. It also shows the difficulty of forming the French resistance and how much a few Frenchmen and women were willing to sacrifice for the restoration of their nation. We were very surprised that it is so good.

I bought this for my husband who was born in France. He wanted to see this movie but it never came to a theater near us. I was very happy to find that it came out on a DVD and I was able to surprise my husband at Christmas. This movie was based on a true story of Edith Piaf. Everyone in France loved Edith Piaf. She had a rough life and a great voice. The actress who played Edith, was wonderful and she really captured Edith's life, personality and feelings. My husband was moved to tears. The movie was in French, but had English subtitles. My husband loved this movie and I liked it too.

As the headline suggests, the trip Diane Lane experiences in this film is one every viewer will be tempted to emulate. The beauties of northern Italy and the portrayal of its people are lovingly presented in this touching film, based on the real-life experiences of its author Frances Mayles. I've never been to Tuscany, but my wife has; now we have to visit together after reveling in the sights, sounds and sweet pathos of this lovely film.

I really enjoyed this movie. I have viewed it years before and always wanted to own it. Harrison Ford is always a great actor and Emanuelle Seigner is not only beautiful, sexy, and played a great part she is also a well-known actress in the French community (Le Sourire). I lived in France for a short while so it was great to see the places that I knew, and hearing the French language spoken is always nice for me.

An absolutely delightful movie about a rat who dreams of being a Chef in France. Definitely as unlike as possible from the natures and dispositions of his family, this rat seeks a higher plane of creating the gourmet food he longs to eat. Filled with humor, excellent writing, excellent graphics and believable scenery, this movie steals your attention and keeps it during the time you are watching it. Delight at the sloppy, kind hearted brother who doesn't know what it is he is eating, but eats it any way. You'll enjoy the father who is a cross between Bill Cosby's Dr. Heathcliff "Cliff" Huxtable and a bit of Archie Bunker. This movie is fun, delightful, humorus for children and adults and something you will want to watch all over again.
