This is a wonderfully magical, although at times, erratic and unbelievable film. It starts off as a gritty
depiction of homeless life in Paris then, by turns, it's romantic, sweepingly beautiful, fable-like and nearly tragic.
All the actors are spellbinding as are the visuals of Paris. Many moments, including the breathtaking sequence
of the lovers speeding down the Seine surrounded by magnificent fireworks; their balletic, drunken dance on
the bridge; his fantastical, gymnastic fire-eating performance are unforgettable. The bold, passionate choices
of the director and the mesmerizing performances make you believe that even when life seems hopeless,
love is still possible.
