2007 “Love is Folly” International Film Festival, Bulgaria – Best Actor (Michel Blanc)Je vous trouve très beau
“Loved the movie! I chose to see it as I wished for a light romantic comedy. I received much more. Not a "funny" comedy but a "chamber" movie with two chamber players, gentle, touching and heart-warming. I loved every character's portrayal, including Ciufu the dog. Coming out of the cinema, I saw smiling faces and overheard men commenting, in surprise, that they did enjoy the movie. The matching of an older -not exactly handsome- man with a younger, vivacious woman, reminded me of two other movies (that quite differ):1. "Alexandre Le bienheureux",1967,(Philippe Noiret v.Marlene Jobert)- (Hilarious!)2. "As good as it gets" (Jack Nicholson v. Helen Hunt)- (saw it twice and still find the chemistry unconvincing). I shall definitely add this movie to my DVD collection.” (reponseb - 04/12/2007)

“This is a film that I think someone from up there inspired, every inch of the way, from the story, to the direction and, most of all, to the cast. It's a great mystery for me how can anyone not adore this gem of a film about the birth of love. I thought a lot about it, and the more I think about it, it seems to me the film is a very sour-sweet meditation on today's world, where nothing is simple, compassion and love are mingled into one big feeling, a comment on the tragedy of human life. It is very much a film of this beginning of the new millennium, and yet it reminded me, I don't know how and why, of another sweet and sad story, that of Isihiguro's Never let me go. They are both, at very different levels, part of the same big thing. We are all here for just a tiny moment, let's try and make the most of it.” (zazoo, Fri Dec 7 2007 06:54:20)
“I hadn't expect to like this movie. It deals with things from my country I desperately wanted to escape from - lack of money, desperation, the small price a woman can ask for herself. And I hadn't really liked a Romanian movie eversince I was a child and I was watching silly communist movies. But this movie had good credentials and people close to me had enjoyed it, so when I had the chance I watched it, first with prejudiced disgust, then with interest and at the end with emotion. It is a lovely movie, about not so lovely people that in the end turn out to be just fabulous. It is the first movie about ugly Romania that I actually enjoyed watching. I am grateful for that.” (biddo77, 3 december 2007)
“I watched this film today on HBO and it pissed me off! That narrow-minded farmer played by Michel Blanc spoke with despise about a country he barely knew. And what a humiliation for all those Romanians involved in it... Medeea who can usually play well, (after all she is at the National Theatre in Bucharest), turned herself into a desperate, naive girl, (kind of a simpleton), with a primitive accent when speaking in French! While I can understand the French writer for such an arrogant and stereotypical work, I can`t understand at all how come nobody in the Romanian team of this film did anything in order to set the things better.” (corina_m, Tue Jul 24 2007 11:14:13)
The complete undervaluation of our economy! It was impossible for Elena to be a billionaire with merely 15.000 euros even when our national currency wasn't relatively strong in comparison with the euro, as it is at the moment (aprox. 3.13 lei\1 euro). The prices for houses and apartments in Bucharest are known to be similar to those in Manhattan! You couldn't purchase a square metre of land in Bucharest with 15.000 euros, let alone open a dance school AND buy a house. And the estimate rent for a space as big as that required for a dance school, and which meets the necessary conditions is aprox. 4000 euros\month. The "there, it's a lot of money for us line" made me sick. Indeed, salaries are small, but prices are sky-high.
If you want a poor country and city where people actually do think 15.000 euros is SUCH a big deal, don't pick Romania and definitely not Bucharest.” (diadeedyi, Tue Jul 24 2007 09:18:02)
