The 3 characters are played so well throughout the movie. Romane Bohringer did such a superb job of portraying Sophie, so silently but yet so powerfully. The characters are so rich in context. The emotions of the characters are told so subtly, but yet so clearly and so easy to get in touch with, especially that of Charles. The lip-synching of Irene is also a super job. I watch it as if it was a live concert. The music is superb !! Don't miss the film if you love classical music !!
