An interesting journey -- worth seeing once., 22 September 1999
Author: meadow-3 from Pacific Coast, America

I wouldn't call it a masterpiece.

And, to be honest with you, I haven't seen "The Wrong Move" in many years.

That said, I possibly lacked the life experience(s) to understand the unspoken message. But I did find the "freeflow" aspect of the journey interesting. Certain visual images along the way were filmed matter-of-fact, like Truffaut's characters who appear dramatically and yet, have no actual connection to the story.

I remember feeling unsatisfied with the film's resolution. (How the "journey" was resolved). But then again, perhaps it was unrealistic to expect anything else.

Was the above review useful to you?
