bit of a let-down!
27 October 2001 | by benlindsaySee all my reviews

I felt the plot seemed interesting (although preposterous): the film seemed to have a good cast (although I admit not having heard of Macha Grenon before!), but the acting seemed disappointing, somewhat leaden, giving the general result of the film being a bit of a let-down for one's money!
