A Fantastic and enjoyable comedy
17 October 2008 | by la_casa_alpinaSee all my reviews

I think for the user comment posted , than the poster doesn't understand , that this is a comedy , an homage like Mel's Brooks "Young Frankenstein" , an it's a good French comedy , i saw it a long time ago , at 84' , and i remembered the enjoyable moment i have . And Jean Rochefort was superb , like always , not to mention the gorgeous female creature . I have to say that i am a big Frankenstein's fan , i watched for the first time the classic Whale - Karloff movie at the age of four , since then i looked all the versions filmed , even the Edison' film , of course all the Universals , the Hammers , the mexicans movies , the B versions , the most bizarre movies with the

"Frankenstein" title ever made , or with the man made monster or human in her plot , like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" , an this "Frankenstein 90" film , has a good and respectable place , between all this films.
