# 60 : « if you direct another, i'll zap you » (web)
19 April 2014 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

A terrible french movie going directly to my movies trashcan, together with Allen's movies !

Like a strange law similar to hand-lines, what happens in the five first minutes of any movies would tell you if the entire movie is good or bad.

Here, those five minutes were awful : picture ravaged by heavy gold colorization, no action, stupid characters with dumb lines, indulgent credits...

For sure, the remaining 85 were in the same vein : more stupid characters (Demongeot, Birkin, the Kurds clan), more empty scenes, and more stupid lines. I could't stand this Kurdish clan which practices a misogynist, blind faith : those men just can't conceive that the world designed by the one and only creator doesn't stop to their vision, they can't accept that a believer can be a sinner (it's even their destiny as only prophets could be no sin), they don't understand that the first step to win beyond is to win down-there and means loving everyone, especially women !

In this putrid mud, the only ray of light comes with Goldsifeth : always simple, natural, smiling, delicate and skilled pianist as well.

To conclude, i would say only this : I was motivated to go to cinema to watch the new movie of Goldsifeth, actually « My Sweet Pepper Land ». But fate (luck ?) helped me to notice that this movie was again written and directed by this poor director, thus sorry Goldsifeth, but i do what my title says : i zap it !
