Poignant and frustrating
8 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

French and foreign critics were eulogistic. I was then expecting a masterpiece. The actors certainly play perfectly but the scenario is deliberately but excessively PulpFiction-ed with a disturbing script.

As a synthesis: disappointing and frustrating. 5/6 of 10.
