I would karnaval all night with Sylvie too
10 September 2002 | by (L A.) – See all my reviews

In my quest to see every $*#)$*ing film that Sylvie Testud has ever done, I got my hands on the vhs of Karnaval, in which the captivating French actress who won me over big time in The Chateau appears in nearly every scene. This is a good thing, a very, very good thing: the film would not have been nearly as entrancing without her - in fact, I probably would have been bored, although the carnival scenes were excellent. (See? I managed to keep my objectivity.)
