A Perfect Drugs Guns And Crime French Movie - Exceptional Actors
29 January 2020 | by dwp1948See all my reviews

01/29/2020 A life like, easily believable movie with French actors (I'm unfamiliar with their names but know them when I see them = Excellent). The realistic storyline coupled with all of the other components that changes a good movie into a great movie. This is one of them. Watch for yourself and decide? Bon Appetit'
