VO only, dialogues are the essence of it
9 October 2017 | by chtipedroSee all my reviews

it s natural to me nobody love it, you must understand french dialogues to appraise it.(just as every films of this director) like every films you must watch it in VO to enjoy it. Many scenes are quite famous, the dialogues are served by a lot of very good actors. the direction have some sluggishness but it don't deserve this rating.
