This is a nice, funny film about an old couple who lived in Paris and owned a house, a cafe, a bath, a playhouse and a post office. These people have a fascinating life story, a colorful life, and a history of accomplishment. They are not your typical elderly couple, but a group of people who seem to have been struggling in their own ways and as individuals. They were well adjusted people, with a sense of humor and a great sense of life. They had a lot of fun, and a lot of material they could have made use of. The film is not like any other film I've seen. It is a mix of facts and opinions, and the pace is fluid and, if anything, quick. It is not a documentary, but a natural comedy, of sorts. It is funny, witty, but at the same time is not "hilarious" or in the same league as something like "Shine" or "The Office". It is rather lighter than that, and has a more domestic feel to it. The film is somewhat surreal, in a good way. I think this was the main reason I enjoyed it so much. The characters are not happy people, and the plot is not about being happy. I liked the fact that it didn't try to be a lighthearted comedy. There are scenes that are pretty serious, and they are really funny. They are not annoying, but the film was not trying to be funny. I think that is the way most good comedies are. If they weren't funny, they wouldn't be funny. It is not the same as "The Office", which is about a workplace with a happy ending. That is supposed to be funny, but it isn't. They are not trying to be comedic, but serious. The ending is not happy, it is just different. You don't know if they will be happy, but they don't seem to be trying. The film doesn't take itself too seriously, but is also not a comedy. It is not meant to be lighthearted, or funny. The humor is more about the characters and their relationships with each other, rather than the comedy. It is a nice balance. The humor is not wacky, but has a lot of depth, as does the film. It is a nice film, but it is not the same as a "Hilarious" film. It is different, and I think that is what made it more appealing. It is still funny, but it is more realistic, more in touch with reality. The acting is solid. Richard Gere is quite funny, and pretty much perfect. He really does have a sense of humor, and he is really good at it. His relationship with Helena Bonham Carter is interesting, and her performance is actually quite good. I don't think he was that good, but his performance was better than I expected. I think that is because the character was believable, he did have a good sense of humor, and he was able to keep it in his own world. Emma Thompson is very good, as the supporting character. The movie is pretty good, and worth watching, but I would recommend that you try to watch it at least once, because you might like it. 7/10

Cecile De France, who had been born in Paris, with her younger sister, is the daughter of a real-estate developer and his wife. In fact, he was an architect who had married a great-aunt, a woman who'd been a Polish orphan, a refugee from the Nazis and was also the daughter of a wealthy Jewish family. The film is set in the 1970s, after the First World War, in Paris, and is essentially a study of the real-estate developer's life. His sons are such impulsive misfits that their father feels uncomfortable at times, and is worried about them. He cares for them to the point of making money from the sale of their belongings. The story is based on De France's real life experiences, as well as the experiences of a real-estate developer who comes across the story in a book, and has no idea what his daughters' parents are actually like. De France plays herself, in a small part, and is all alone in her portrayal. She's terrific, and she's not the only one who seems to make this movie work. The film isn't so much a drama as it is a study of how a man who has so little of himself in his life, is so upset that his son is having the same feelings. The writing is fine, and the editing is very well done. The only thing that's a bit of a disappointment is the direction. In the first half, the film seems to be going in a direction that the director wanted it to go in, but then, the direction switches abruptly to something else, and the film seems to lose all direction. The film is also slow at times, and at times it seems as if the director doesn't know what he wants to show us. Overall, this is a good film, and I highly recommend it.
