No big deal, kinda boring
8 January 2016 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I wasn't really impressed by Mauvaise Passe. I thought the movie was predictable and boring. Really nothing special to be thrilled about. The story is what it is, a bit hard to believe, that's for sure. I mean what would a French speaking person search in London where 99,9% of the population can't speak a word of French? And him, he finds immediately a new job, plus another job as gigolo while he is middle aged, isn't that of a great looking guy and he doesn't speak English himself. It's all too far teched for me. I'm not going to debate about the rest of the story, let's just say that all the stereotypes about gigolo's passes the revue. It's just an average movie.
