Lelouch is Lelouch
18 November 2001 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

A combination of chance and coincidence bring together a number of events and personalities during 24 hours, leading ultimately to the death of one of them. A typical and excellent Lelouch film, mixing simplicity and surrealism to show us a little about "la vie humaine". If you like Lelouch, you'll love this.
