One of the best movies I've ever seen!!, Nov 29 2001
I took French all four years of high school and our teacher Madam Southwood always used to show French movies every Friday. Some of the movies she showed were Jean de Florette, Manon de la Source, Le Gloire de mon Pere, and, of course, Le Huitieme Jour, which was my all-time favorite movie that she showed. It was funny, touching, and sad all at the same time. There is no comparison, in my opinion, to The Rain Man or Forrest Gump. Le Huitieme Jour is in a class all to itself.
