Excellent, a must see movie for cinema fans....
25 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a filmmaker the stunning cinematography, direction and a great soundtrack that includes the brilliant Lene Marlin track Where I'm Headed, Mauvais Frequentations seemed to be grip me. Although the DVD I own has no subtitles and I understand very little French, I was mesmerised by the way the film flowed and unfolded before me. The actors suited there roles superbly, adding to the unsuspecting dramatic script.

Mauvais Frequentations portrays how people can be exploited and how situations can get totally out of hand, movies like this should be made more often. 'Fluffy bunny' cinema is great but has no meaning, at the end of a film one should be able to contemplate upon the scenes you have seen in the movie If someone is into alternative cinema, Mauvais Frequentations might be just the thing to get engrossed in one cold night.
