Jodorowsky's worst!
8 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

after searching for years to find a copy of this long buried film, i finally found a copy. after watching it, i now know why this film never got released. this film is void of Jodorowsky's strange imagery and messages. all it's about is an elephant and a girl born on the same day, and about some bad guys that don't like the giant animals. the movie is in French, which i don't speak, but it doesn't take a genius to realize this movie is a waste of time.
