I'm done, Dell. I can't. Out. I don't wanna see you and neither do Anthony.
That boy need me. He need me to protect him, because people around here eat boys like that for lunch.
How you gonna protect him if you ain't never here?
You're asking me to leave.
Because I can't count on you.
What do you want from me? Hmm?
Now? Nothing. What did I want from you? Everything. Help, support.

Remakes happen, as well as re-imaginings. However they make sense when a director/writer have something more to add to the story, especially as beautiful as this one in a French original. Here we got a back to back copy of a quite recent movie. A movie, that was a huge international hit, and is well known outside of the USA, so a so recent remakwe, ekhm, copy, is the more baffling. This is not the case of The Lion King, which was inspired by an obscure Japanese cartoon, and a wider audience got a chance to known the story. THe original made over 400 millions of dollars worldwide...
Are Americans so afraid of subtitles, that they have to make their own versions of movies?
