a film about a fat french dude named Stalin
1 June 2018 | by tudorcareanSee all my reviews

The setting and directing of the movie is horrible. There is nothing russian to the atmosphere: the actors are speaking french all the way, no russian background music, no footage in Moscow, the actors were not behaving like russians. At the very least they could have shown some communist monuments or at least try to re-create the athmosphere like other movies like "The Americans" did.

I want my two hours of my life back. It's that bad.
