Yes!.. This is real
16 September 2004 | by paldersSee all my reviews

long time since I've seen this movie (probapsly about a year or two). You like spie-derr-man?! This is die-hard material. A very modern way of film making. The French aren't that trivial, you know, and I wouldn't like to be the protagonist of this feature. It's a joker in his adolescence years who boasts about his capabilities towards a girl of his age. He enters hard reality in his romantic egocentric young romantic view of the world. Criminality isn't that easy, you know. Myself, I've tried it (in a modest way: non organised stealing). But what this boy encounters puts yer nose down on the facts. No romanticised view on the world here! This is true! In the end you get to learn that debate is more constructive than doin'things by yourself. And all the while it's not a lesson!!!
