Riveting

One more example, unfortunately, of what the french movie industry may give but that stay unknown of the large audiences. A very interesting story, already told in the plot line above, a tale that let you unaware of what follows in the next sequence. A thriller, no, but a suffocating drama, yes. This feature may makes you dizzy. Especially the very ending.

Not a teenager film, as you may expect if you read the topic, nor a comedy either.

That doesn't make a surprise, after all, if the releasing of this movie was not wider.

Stay tuned, folks, week after week, of what is shown in theaters. All movies doesn't stay long, and you may miss some gems.
