    It is said to be a horror movie but I don't find it. For me and for the most of the people who've seen it this is one of the best true romance movies ever. Just read the user reviews on Imdb.
    Maybe the carved smile is scary but you soon don't see it anymore, you only see a big heart inside of the man.

    Strange how everybody finds the sight of Gwynplaine hilarious when he looks absolutely terrifying. 5 years 10 months ago
