A great "small" film about a man's search for another version of himself.
7 December 2002 | by drewhorganSee all my reviews

I saw this on TV here in Cotonou. Impressive piece of "magic." You start out detesting Jean and even wondering why you are watching the film but then the magic of Antoine slips in and you soon are hoping beyond hope that Jean can uncover "another Jean." In the end your sympathies for him are strong. You are rooting for him to start a new life with Virginie. And then crash, the future disappears and the new Jean is no more. It's kind of "schmaltzie" but I was touched by the very ending when his "light" heads up through the clouds to the sun above.
