      Audience Member I love French movies Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie was very touching. Actually the protagonist of the story narrates his story. He compares his childhood days with the present and after many years he is nostalgic of his childhood days. The theme revolves the inimitable warmth and love of a simple and humble life of the protagonist's childhood days. It captures the rekindling of fond memories of the past, the hollowness of the heart at the present and rediscover the original self. The film on the whole imbues us with a feeling of genuine warmth and kindness. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Richard Berry est tres bon dans ce role, avec toujours l'humour incisif d'Azad.
