It was exactly what I thought it'd be and nothing more.
Most of my favorite films often leave me with a heartwarming, wistful sort of feeling, and this film is a perfect example of that. Considering I didn't know anything about the plot beforehand (for once), Lola (1961) is an unexpected addition to my all-time favorites list. It's a fairy tale romance that feels strangely and terribly real. I'd go as far as to say that THIS is the film that could finally explain to me why everyone loves the French…
