24 July 2013 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Hiii, it's my first Faux Pas movie. Technical is the film good. It have a decent story and a good arrangement. The acting was very well. Definitely the panic scene's. Only the riot on the end could be more aggressive. The center of the movie is the drama get's bigger and bigger. Sometimes mixed up with hilarious scene's. There are a lot of beautiful girls in it. Awesome! If we go deeper and deeper into the movie, it get's more mysterious. You gotta see it ! There is a new project "Ovulation". I'm looking forward to his new project. I bought this movie on his website. Fast shipping and it's all regions. I hope there are coming more films from Faux Pas. And a reason to watch the other movies.
