  1. Besson's restored Big Blue proves mystical, intriguing.

    The results are predictably lachrymose, especially with the reinstated "unhappy" ending from the original French version.
  3. 50
    A flawed fable but an intriguing one nonetheless. It's "Splash" gone existential. How many films can you name like that?

    Outstanding movie that is so unlike the predictable commercial movies of today. This movie takes its time and leaves a lot up to the viewer rather than spelling it all out for us. Very moving for me. Expand
