Hi,

I don't know if you get alerted about comments on old posts...

Here I am two years later.

I just saw this movie (visiting my parents - they should live and be well).

I bought into it and very much enjoyed it. I think the book contained kernels waiting to be movie-fied and they took it and ran with it.

A lot of small details were changed and one subplot about a police inspector chasing after the guy was wisely deleted.

And the ending was of course made into an American movie ending, as opposed to a French book ending which was open ended.

Interesting that the film was based on a book.... And yes, I do love the romantic sensibility of the film. After you see it, you'll have to let me--us!-- know how far the film changed from the book.

This film is based on the book If Only It Were True by Marc Levy.* I enjoyed the book,but felt like it was a bit thin, reading more like a movie script than a book,lacking some of the depth I hope for in a book. Still, I loved the romantic sensibility of the story, and imagined it being a movie one day. I didn't know that it had been adapted till I read your postand realized right away that this film is based on that book. Thanks.
