    A slight but lovely tale animated by touches of magical realism and the expressions on Mathieu Amalric's always interesting face. One might wish that he had more drama to work with -- and more interactions with actors of comparable magnetism. (See: the terrific "Jimmy P.," with Amalric and Benicio Del Toro.) But I enjoyed the touches of exotic whimsy amid the familiar themes of love and loss.

    Although the story is mournful, the movie is buoyed by a heaven-scented surrealism.

    It's fascinating as an offbeat storytelling exercise.

    Satrapi and Parronnaud give us clues but no solution. The fun, for those of us who like fairy tales, is in guessing.
