They don't get it! This was my reaction at the end, that the French just don't understand. Maybe, instead, it's me. If so, thank goodness for the devastatingly desirable A-Team of Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert and company to, um, set me straight. Thank goodness for the reminder that, though like a national dirtball pasttime it may be over here , murder is NOT naturally as entertaining as say, Adrian Monk a particular car-bombing excepted or Jessica Fletcher have made it over the years. So I will watch the film again--indeed already looking forward to it, not at all as somehow the 'musical comedy' one idiot flack billed it as, but rather as a serious work, about a serious subject: the deep-seated passions the wrongful, violent loss of a loved one sometimes brings to the fore.
The 101 Greatest Endings in Movies History
Rodin possessed a unique ability to model a complex, turbulent, and deeply pocketed surface in clay. Many of Rodin's most notable sculptures were criticized as they clashed with predominant figurative sculpture traditions in which works were decorative, formulaic, or highly thematic. Rodin's most original work departed from traditional themes of mythology and allegory. He modeled the human body with naturalism, and his sculptures celebrate individual character and physicality. Although Rodin was sensitive to the controversy surrounding his work, he refused to change his style, and his continued output brought increasing favor from the government and the artistic community. From the unexpected naturalism of Rodin's first major figure — inspired by his trip to Italy — to the unconventional memorials whose commissions he later sought, his reputation grew, and Rodin became the preeminent French sculptor of his time.

Not every great movie has a great ending. It is, arguably, the most important part of any film — how a filmmaker wants you to feel when the lights go up is often the key to what that picture was really about. In compiling a list of the greatest endings in movie history, we had many arguments over many months about this very dynamic, and found ourselves drawn to certain types we deemed successful more than others: Ambiguous, dark endings; endings that purported to explain something but secretly did not; endings that denied us and the characters closure; endings that featured people dancing, but not always in joyous, triumphant fashion. Maybe that was a reflection of the times we were living. Dark, uncertain, marked by a significant amount of human flailing.
