Nor lively nor heavy, just non credible
15 February 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

The distribution was good, the subject could have been interessant and comic. whereas, he described the wandering of an old non credible communist looking for loving sensations. Instead of this, the atmosphere is nor lively nor heavy.
