Most underrated movie on IMDb.
8 September 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

(warning bad English commenting :D) Little Chenier is in its own quiet melancholy style one of the beautiful movies of 2007, i by accident saw the trailer on you-tube which catch-ed my attention, but i hate to waste my time with bad movies, so i checked the IMDb rating, which immediately shattered all my expectations, but i was bored and decided to give it A go anyway, so i did, and let me just say, h'm... how can i put this, before this movie i watched "No Country For Old Men" where i almost fell asleep, this movie is way better, this is A movie i really felt gave me something, its A movie that will slowly, but surely crawl under your skin and **** with Ur head... so... i would recommend that you this one time, ignored the misplaced rating (which often match the movies here on IMDb)... and watch it!
