They should have stayed to their short movie
24 April 2016 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

This trio has already done a short movie about the same triangle : the fragile bearded friend, the racked other and the gracious Goldsifeth. Here the story is interesting and is reminiscent to « after hours » as Goldsifeth stays in Paris for a wild night with those friends instead of coming back to prison ! There is some good moments also because the movie is shot live in the streets of Paris : for one time, it's not the « city of lights » but the city of workers with public transports, old apartments, small streets… The cast is good, especially Goldsifeth who has totally assimilated french culture and better than some others native ! However, at the end, the movie is too much talks, not really optimist and repetitive with those hugging / fighting friends! As my version had in addition a horrible sound and no subtitles, it was really hard for me to follow it and i was thus happy when the movie ended !
