DVD without subtitles
5 May 2009 | by gabriela-zayasSee all my reviews

Although the film (or what I could made up of it) es nice, touching and well acted, French DVD lacks subtitles and it's a pity. I don't understand why they do this, preventing all of us to buy their products. So, if you want to understand the whole of it, you'll have to wait until the film is available in your not French speaking country. Hmmm! That's too bad!

On the other hand, the story is compelling, realistic and has an extra interest: the cast is magnificent. They all are great actors, including the boy. We can also see one of the last performances Guilaume Depardieu made before his premature death (aged 37). Photograph, sometimes too dark, but effective, music nice, etc. Just the problem with the subtitles made me give the film so low a vote.
