Lindsay Armstrong Black,
I never thought when i started watching this movie that i would be experiencing a new form of horror entertainment. Michel Flavius 's breathtaking performance is only matched by such milestone compositions as Boris Karloff's Frankeinstein and Peter Lorre's Orlac in Mad love. Laurent Petitgirard's score haunts you like nothing has haunting you before. Great choice of extras in particular Mr Roger. So you get the picture ,great acting ,great script,great score,and above all a great director:Raphael Delpard. This is french cinema at it's ravishing best.
