Funny, Smart and Heart-warming,
This review is from: The Day I Saw Your Heart (DVD)
I watched this film on a pure whim, having never heard of the director nor any of the actors. At first it seemed like a lightweight comedy and I wasn't much interested. But the people were genuinely funny so I stuck with it. What a surprise as it got better and better and then totally won me over.
Besides the smart and clever script, the actors are wonderful. Michel Blanc, as the 60 year old bad dad will touch your heart. His terribly selfish daughter, Justine, played by the very beautiful and talented Melanie Laurent goes head to head with him -- they are a great father-daughter love/hate team. Even the supporting characters are great; I particularly liked the son-in-law who's thrilled when his refrigerator shows up in the art show. .
Not the least interesting to me is the use of American pop culture--Starbucks, PayPal, EBay, as well as great music. I loved the idea of the x-ray technologist making art from her films. Just to describe the film is not to do it justice. It's wonderfully done and I highly recommend it.
