Not bad.
13 September 2014 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

It's a film with an ordinary quality. Probably the most 'accessible' French film I've ever watched.

To elaborate and clarify, I rate a film 6/10 when it's not a bad film but it has nothing new to offer to its own genre much less the cinema as a whole. It is recommendable only on the ground that one is a hardcore fan of the genre, theme, director etc.

To acquire higher point, the film must contribute something to its own genre or theme. It doesn't have to invent something new but it must have a high quality over all. A practical example would be a film that define the genre of that particular year.
