just two topics for this film!!!!
I am surprised that there isn't more threads for this film considering many people herald it as one of the best french films of all-time. After just watching it I have to say I am slightly disappointed. I guess its cause of all the hype but I thought it was a little too 'twee' and waltons-esque. It started strongly and the fathers similies and the way he bought up the kids was great. But later it just got camper and camper. I don't think this was helped by the fact that marcel looked like he was going to grow up to become france's number one female tennis player in 2005. It's just at times I felt like the von trapp family were going to leap out and start singing 'the hills are alive'. A great film non the less. It made me remember how much I hated the end of the school holidays as a child and I look forward to watching the sequel very soon.share
