A Very Entertaining French Film!
26 September 2018 | by SylSee all my reviews

The film is about an out of work Parisian actor, Jean, who gets a job in a reenactment. Jean has to travel to somewhere in France. Jean gets caught up in the mystery behind the crime in itself with the locals. The actors stay at a local hotel together. The film is quite entertaining and different from other films. Jean played the dead victim and helped solve the crime. The cast is first rate and the art direction is beautiful with French scenery. If you love French films, you can include this in your collection.
