Dark... In A Good Way
22 December 2018 | by zandertowneSee all my reviews

Excellent French film about the Grand Guignol theater in the early part of the 20th Century. Impressive period details, engaging plot and interesting twists. I loved that much of the film took place in the theater itself. Perhaps some of the supporting characters weren't as fully developed as I would have liked (never sure where the "bad" theater manager was coming from) and I always prefer complex three dimensional characters instead of caricatures, but I enjoyed all the other dark shadings given to most. And a rather lovely "dark" ending that skirts close to a movie cliche, twice, before revealing it's something far deeper and more meaningful. For all parties involved. And in response to some of the other reviewers; on my TV the photography was extremely well done! I had no problem seeing what was going on, and, honestly, I worry some folks might need to see an ophthalmologists or optician or maybe they had their fingers too close together as their hands covered their eyes during the creepy and bloody bits.
