    Subject

    "(...) Auteuil is as graceful as the best tightrope walkers. Those who stroll calmly along above the void with the sparkle in their eye showing a blend of anxiety and excitement. We have no notion of the effort they put into this but we believe in the danger. Few actors could have borne the raw impact of Pascal Duquenne's presence with such mischief and generosity, subtlety and spontaneity. They play on this like two flints striking sparks off each other. The film's heart-warming epilogue is the sight of these two men, arm in arm, holding aloft their red-ribboned awards.(...)"
