Le Belle Époque is the first full-length feature film by Annapurna Pictures. It stars Ashton Sanders as Rico, an aging newspaper journalist with a private jet, a second job as a florist, a gorgeous wife (Paz Vega) and an adventurous young daughter. Rico has only one bone to pick with the world: he wants to break into the world of his rich father's foundation that finances philanthropic projects around the world. Rico's family has not always supported him in his many adventures, and the family values have changed. Rico learns that the foundation has increased his daughter's salary (as a trainee sous-chef) and that he now has the job of reporting on events and playing the piano. Rico feels he can finally live the life of the rich and famous. As well, his father has traveled to Germany to perform at a concert; and his mother still lives in the same house she had when he was a boy. When the family moves to the suburb of Konserthus in Schleswig-Holstein, the old home, which has been deteriorating, is demolished. Although his daughter believes that this is a good idea, and his brother, who still lives at home, does not object, the older brother is nevertheless suspicious. Rico becomes a suspect in the investigation of the destruction of the house, and when Rico finds out that the real owner of the house is none other than his former colleague, he leaves his family. On the way, Rico meets and falls in love with a new girl, Ewa, who he did not know in the first place. And after the family moves to a new house, Rico begins to find out what his father and mother really had to do with the destruction of the house. How exactly did the family lose the house? How did they move from the wealthy mansions in the north to the more modest dwellings in the south? The film is a deeply moving drama about the often hidden but powerful relationships of families, which come to a head at the end of the movie, and what happens to Rico, who moves out of his parents' house, into an apartment in the north of Schleswig-Holstein. The family issues show the family values of a wealthy man and a family in crisis, and how society changes and changes with the passage of time. The family values, which were more than just financial, are what make the story worth watching, and in the end, for me, the most fascinating part of the film. The movie has some wonderful visual and musical images, which are perfectly paired with the music. The high quality of the production is wonderful, and the film is visually stunning, and the music is very effective and convincing. The music was composed by Jean-Michel Jarre and the music is similar to his music in The Illusionist. The story itself is a sad but well made movie, and the movie is extremely moving.

In 1999, the French feminist writer Danielle Steele discovered a series of erotic novels written by French author Madame Gauthier. Upon hearing that this book was being produced in the United States, she contacted the director of the film, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. From that point on, Jeunet had a rather difficult task. He had to develop a film based on the novels by Madame Gauthier, and he needed an actress to portray a series of hyper-feminine characters. He did not have a great choice; however, he did have some specific actors who he was confident would do a good job. Most of these actors would go on to large movie and TV successes. Laurence Olivier, Sigourney Weaver, Julia Ormond and Kevin Spacey. Weaver played a young but strict housewife whose life is threatened when her husband goes insane. This was one of the most difficult roles in film history for director Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Jean-Pierre Jeunet is an adept, but not a great director. He was brought to the helm of the American version of "Romeo and Juliet", but he was a bad fit and very predictable. Jeunet quickly demonstrated that he was able to direct an interesting and at times thought provoking film. "La Belle Époque" is similar in theme to "La Belle Époque" in some ways. It is about two sisters, one of whom is homosexual and the other a lesbian. Each has been sent to a convent to "erase" their homosexual attractions. In their service, they have learned to suppress their homosexuality. The sisters have also learned to live with the assumption that homosexuality is a choice, as they were taught at the convent. A third sister, Sylvia (Sigourney Weaver) is also sent to the convent. When Sylvia is not in the convent, she spends her time singing and acting out homosexual fantasies. As the sisters are reading the erotic novels in the convent library, all of a sudden, they are the objects of some sadomasochistic sadomasochism. The sisters must now "erase" their homosexuality. Much of the erotic scenes in "La Belle Époque" were filmed for Jeunet in France. The films set in this rural area, "Le Pouvoir de Menevres", "Le Mere, L'Adore", "Le Relais des Noel", "Le Trop," "La Belle Époque" and "La Belle Ete", all show a classic French society of the 1970's. One major difference in the films is the music. The majority of the music in the films were made by French composers. The most notable French composer is Max Richter. "La Belle Époque" has a classical feel to it, not as one would expect from a French film set in the 1970's. The sound is very French, almost Middle Eastern in that the music tends to be a touch tinged with a touch of Eastern European. Although the film is set in France, there is a strong Italian influence to the soundtrack. This is very appropriate since it is based on a novel by Madame Gauthier. The film is also not as "heteronormative" as many of the films that focus on the Catholic church. In a sense, "La Belle Époque" is an anti-Catholic film. To date, this is not a common occurrence. Overall, the acting in "La Belle Époque" is great. Weaver does a wonderful job in her first leading role. She does a marvelous job portraying a young, virginal lesbian who has a mind of her own and has a great deal of freedom

Freed from the restriction of his hard-core drama, Andrzej "Andrzej" Mankiewicz (Alfred Molina) suddenly has his return to the film world, after his hiatus. Returning to his roots, he plays as a charming, yet troubled Polish immigrant, who could pass for an American, since he is fluent in two languages, spoken fluently in Polish and spoken fluently in English. He manages to write songs with the best of them, with admirable ease and aplomb. He is also considered to be among the best dancers in Poland, and a capable actor. But the film itself is one that is far from his more successful work. It is rather rather turgid, and is very awkward in some areas. But that's to be expected in any case, since Mankiewicz has given us the uncomfortable "The Man With a Golden Arm", and "Walking Toward Sarnia". In "Beneath the Surface", it is far more uncomfortable to watch him, instead of simply looking at him, as you would have done in his best work, as in "The Year of Magical Thinking". His reaction to the new culture, and other aspects, and the tension between him and his wife (Judith Bebbington), or the strange talk about their daughter (Sheree East) or son (Dominique Pinon), and so forth, becomes rather overbearing. The only part of the film I liked, was Mankiewicz and his wife. They managed to make you sympathize with them, and believe them. Even though she is married to a rich and happy man, she is still sick to her stomach of his suave behavior, and he is selfish. Their son is also quite a fascinating character, with his much-talked about "mixed personality", but it is impossible to say how far his issues go. The son is also a restless and depressed young man, but is somewhat seductive, and is already wondering whether he is gay. In the end, this is one film that will be well-liked by all who will see it, but not by all who will see it.
