Un amour de sorcière,Roseannas grave,Ronin,Godzilla

Godzilla (1998)
I'm not a one for monster movies,but Jean Reno makes this the best moster movie ever!.Jean is a French secret service agent and has gone to New York because the French atom bombs tested in the South Pacific has unleashed a giant Lizard onto the world.So Jean is there to sort it out.Mathew Brodrick is the main star in this,but this film would be nothing without the suave and sexy Jean there.It's quite a good story and has plenty of action and some very funny bits in it.Jean looks absolutely gorgeous in his white Doctors coat whilst questioning an oriental fisherman about the monster....

Ronin (1998)
Ronin is by far Jeans best film to date and at least it's an action film where he doesn't get killed for a change.This is a grown ups version of James Bond and it is well worth watching over and over again.A freelance gang of ex secret agents are on a mission to steal a case in Paris,they don't even know who they are stealing it for and they don't know what's in it?,they are all doing it for a price. Robert Di Niro stars alongside Jean in this,and to be honest,they compliment each other and I would love to see them in a follow up of Ronin.There are some of the best car chases in film history in this film and some interesting gun battles,there is also two of my favourite pieces of music from all time in it:'Time to say goodbye' by Sarah Brightman and 'Rhapsody of a theme of Paganini' by Rachmanikov.

Roseannas grave (1997)
Roseannas grave has got to be one of Jeans best films,I think the part of Marcello suits him it shows his acting ability at it's best and that he doesn't have to play a murderer to be a great actor. 
He is married to a woman,Roseanna,who is slowly dying of heart desease and they are horrified that there is only a couple of graves left in the local cemetary.It is Roseannas dearest wish to be buried next to their young daughter Marcellina who died at a very young age.Marcello loves Roseanna very much and wants to grant her her last dying wish,so he is doing everything within his power to stop other people dying and taking up the spaces that are left.This is a beautiful,sometimes funny and very heartwarming film.
