Boring
21 April 2019 | by chouby007See all my reviews

Boring, stay home. no endearing characters, history is absent, no character is developed. I heard that it was a true story .. unfortunately to export this film it would have been interesting to tell us a little more about who is Vidoc .. I was bored from beginning to end. I should have chose tranguay le retour insted
