fantastic absolutely brilliant
24 January 2011 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Don't miss it, if you can find it. Absolutely a must-watch; it is spectacular, fantastic!!! Very interesting storyline with a great screenplay, excellent lines too. As everybody will tell you Fresnay's acting is monumental, impressive, unbeaten to this very day. I think it was horrible for his fellow actors, how do you keep up to such gargantuan acting? Poor Trabaud (who plays the little priest) didn't manage it, IMHO. His Gerard is fine in the beginning of the movie, but afterwards gets very annoying and tedious (so annoying one can understand why he ends up the way he does). This movie needs more attention from the public, it is such a great work of art and such a shame you can't find it easily. If only for Fresnay's work, it is a pity that anyone who is interested in acting and in movies should miss it.
