Quiet but stirred with emotions
26 April 2014 | by (Lisboa) – See all my reviews

Interesting argument about the life surrounding the train station in Paris. Much of the lifes there are from immigrants so the movie seems a bit of a documentary about the experiences felt by the almost real persons - are they actors?.

There's a twist about a supernatural power witch we amazingly confuse with the love felt about one person.

The picture is sometimes darker than one might look for as the action walks by the subway and the train station.

Sometimes there are people looking to the camera giving the experience a bit of an negative impact.

Overall it is a worthy movie but the 110 minutes makes it a bit lengthy as the action passes almost always in the train station, with the same people.
