Without light
8 November 2002 | by boudu_sauve_des_eauxSee all my reviews

The movie is a mess. Neither the good cast and the good intentions can save the weak story, and the sometimes confusing flashbacks. Cheap philosophy, People with no reasons to live, stereotypes, and some nice landscapes, who really need it? Characters without a story. 4/10.
