A movie which has the power to demonstrate the advanced ability of French cinema, an industry often swept under the mat by American film conglomerates. You'll laugh, you'll cry, but most importantly, you'll believe it.

I'm not sure that the "meaning" of the movie is particularly profound (despite the references to Tolstoy, French class differences, and the like) or that the two subplots are even as well integrated as they might be; The movie is neverthelessI'm not sure that the "meaning" of the movie is particularly profound (despite the references to Tolstoy, French class differences, and the like) or that the two subplots are even as well integrated as they might be; The movie is nevertheless beautifully filmed, lovingly directed, well acted, and a delight to watch. Subtle, sly, touching, and respectful of its audience. Expand

Paloma (the young girl) is eccentric but very intelligent, and the interplay between her, the Hedgehog (the concierege) and the new resident is very interesting. It really is a story of the humanity of a man who can see beneath the "hegdehog" exterior and bring out the true person which lays beneath. It's too bad this movie will probably not get the attention it deserves, but there is a lovely message here. Expand
