The big nothing (payTV)
26 October 2016 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

You pay and you got nothing in return : it's a french movie and there is no subtitles ! If it was a American movie, you'll get them ! Perharps Canal+ thinks that hard or hearing don't exist in France or that they want only foreign films ??? But for me it's simple : without them, i can't follow a french movie ! However I try as i appreciate Poelvorde and him doing a Punk should be an interesting. Like Lisbeth Salander, it's about being marginal characters and we don't see much of them. In addition, behind are the authors of Guignols and Groland so i should be funny !

The first thing i notice is the horrible golden cinematography ! People have awful orange skin, everything seems unnatural, faded… Next, the movie is short (90 minutes) but the first minutes are about Benoit walking in the street with his dog. It barks at a cat picture and Benoit kicked it… so 2 minutes for a small fun moment… Next, we have a five minutes meal in which Benoit and his brother tell together their father each own story so it's again desperately long for a small fun moment. The next scene is more quiet but i can't follow the dialogues.. So, with so much problems after ten minutes, i stop the movie and maybe i will give it a try …on a free channel…..
