True love is often found in friendship!! .. A beautiful story to show that romantic love, and familial love, are not the only ones that can help a person feel great about themselves,, and that no matter how tough your upbringing and life has been, if you can remain open to life, and a good person, it can come in the most unexpected way!!

Run don't walk to this one. Uplifting, endearing. The critics are just tired old people who are jaded!!!!! This made me laugh, cry and I love it!
Love Between the Pages by celluloidsweetie
Despite some dramatic weaknesses, this small and touching film - the sort that the French manage to carry out so well - left this reviewer with a warm feeling after seeing it. Both Gérard Depardieu, as a rough-around-the-edges blue-collar worker and Gisèle Casadesus, the 95-year-old "dame" whom he befriends, bring their distinctive touches to their roles. Depardieu's galumphing gruffness is counterbalanced by Ms. Casadesus' spun-glass fragility.
Chasz (Depardieu) has been deeply hurt by life, in the person of an unloving and unloveable virago of a mother, but is nonetheless capable of deep love, such as for his much younger and beautiful Annette. Marguéritte has had a lifelong and deep love with the written word, and it is this which joins these two very different yet similar human beings. Tighter directing might have helped the occasional sagging narrative, and there are moments of unnecessary overacting. Some profanity and sex, so not kid-appropriate.

This is a lovely, simple story about the importance of friendship. One of the best films I have seen in a while.
