User Reviews

reminded me of those erotic Giallo back in the days
11 April 2020 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This reminded me a lot of the heydays of Giallos. The colors, the story and even the gay and lesbian scene's. They are just on the edge of explicit, so typical French.

It wasn't really my thing because the whole movie is about the gay scene, so I can understand if you are into that you will love this. You can easily find out who the killer is, it's all explained in the second part of this flick.

Why I watched it, I grew up with Vanessa Paradis. So it was nice to see she's still standing an din fact still looks the same.

Calling it a Giallo isn't maybe all correct but back then you had some explicit sexual tinted Giallos and myabe it fits into that genre. But a bit of weak story tears it down.
