I thought the film was good and the story was very good. The movie had a great ending. It was worth watching.

This movie has very deep and wonderful themes and thus is a good movie for all. I think people should see this movie in the same way they see "Titanic" or "Casino" or "Oklahoma". This movie presents the history of the French Revolution. It explains how the Frenchmen think about it. The "brave" heroes are depicted in a very fair way. I think it is fair to say that this movie is so much more than a drama. It is a great movie for all those who like a very deep film, who want to learn more about the French Revolution. It's the kind of movie that makes you think about it for years to come.

I have watched this film several times and I cannot say enough about it. It is definitely one of the best films I have seen in my life, I can not recommend it highly enough. It is not a documentary in any sense of the word, as it does not aim to make the audience aware of things that are happening on screen. It instead focuses on the relationships between the characters, the relationships between the characters in the film and the relationship between the characters in the film. As a result the film is extremely realistic, you will feel like you are there, and that the characters are really seeing things as they happen to them. The characters are shown to be incredibly intelligent, and it makes you think that they may be not so bad after all. In the end I believe that this film is really one of the best I have seen in my life, and I hope to see it more often, because it is definitely a film that you have to see!

This film has a very different style to most of the films I've seen in the past year. I have to admit I was somewhat nervous when I saw it, but it turned out to be a very good movie. The characters are very realistic and believable, and the story is very interesting. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a movie that doesn't try to be too much and doesn't take itself too seriously. I would also recommend it to people who are looking for a good mystery/thriller. The acting is very good. The only problem I had with the film was the pace. I think the movie could have been better paced. It seemed a little slow to me, and it could have been a little longer. The story was also very interesting, and I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in a good mystery/thriller.

This is a gripping psychological thriller, and it's certainly one of the most bizarre films I have ever seen. Felt like the director and cinematographer were trying to do something a little different than the usual French action-thriller, but I must say, it worked. The basic plot is that the story goes back and forth between the present day and the past, and the first part is a police investigation. There is a series of flashbacks to see the inner workings of the 'hero' and the late detective, and then there are glimpses into the mind of the man's wife, so she can see what he's thinking. The camera work is very tense, but the emotional effect of the camera is that of a roller-coaster. It gets more and more intense, and you are really on the edge of your seat. There are scenes where the camera is on the man's face and he is staring into the distance, and when he looks away, you are completely enthralled. Also very unique, and very original, is the way they use a technique of the previous Hitchcock, of shooting a scene without actually showing the main character. The scene at the end is one of the most thought-provoking, and the film shows how a character will change, and in the end he becomes the man he once was. There are also several sequences where he appears to be the bad guy, but you realise he's not. I don't think the film will appeal to everyone, because there is violence and blood, but it is a very different type of horror film. It really does keep you in your seat. I hope I got this down to the point where I could say that I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's a little disturbing, and it is slightly creepy, but it's a different type of horror, and I really enjoyed it.

I think that this film is a great example of a French film that has been adapted from a book by a French author. I've read the book and I think that the film is very well done. The story is very complex and you have to pay attention to it, but I think that this film is one of the best movies ever made about this topic. I really like this movie because it shows the complexity of the human psyche. The director has done a great job with the story and the characters. The actors are very good. I think that it is one of the best films ever made about the human mind.

I have watched this movie twice. First, when I was a student of first year journalism in France, and then when I graduated. I'm an international person, so I know how to appreciate a good story. This movie has a good story. It has real actors, a good screenplay. The interesting aspect of the movie is how the human behavior is similar in all countries. How human society reacts to different situations. How everything can be wrong, but only that is really important to manage, because only if you do something really wrong, you're losing all that you have and can take for granted. Great movies are not about a perfect solution, but about a case of finding a way to avoid mistakes. This movie reminds me how we can do things for ourselves without being against other people, and how easy it is to resolve a situation without getting involved in them.

I don't really want to be a spoiler here because I'm sure everyone already knows the plot. Basically, after a year of studying foreign languages, Sorbonne student Guillaume Canet (Philippe Leconte) is sent to a closed school in Paris, a place where he's forbidden from speaking, making art, or even communicating with other students. When Guillaume is not allowed to communicate with anyone for a year, he begins to develop an unusual relationship with his teacher, Mireille Ewert (Charlotte Rampling). As the years go on, Guillaume begins to question his life as an academic and becomes increasingly unstable. He starts to kill off his parents, and is eventually convinced to kill the director of the school who started his education. How do you make a movie that revolves around a teacher's feelings for a student? Easy. You just have to follow the rules of the time. In this movie, it's French and English, and the rules change daily. You can't change the rules if you don't follow the rules. The director decides to end the movie with Guillaume at his graduation, just as he says goodbye to his parents. After the school closes, Guillaume is determined to find out what has happened to his parents. The first year is filled with moments of horror, as he begins to meet people who have been there and can tell what has happened to his parents. But, the first year also marks the beginning of Guillaume's struggles with mental illness. The ending of the movie is very disturbing, and is probably the only scene that's as good as the first. The main theme of this movie is the difficulties and goals of an individual's life, and how they might change for the worse when they're not following the rules. I felt that the director and the cast did a great job with the subject matter, and I think that this is one of the best movies I have ever seen. I would have given it a 10/10, but I think the movie itself is just as good.

A good movie that is different from the usual French movie. Not much action but the movie is very good.

I think that The Gambler is a brilliant movie. It takes a really great idea and twists it into a brilliant thriller. It has a great soundtrack. I do not know who did the music for this movie but I do not think that it is the composer for the movie. I just think that it was a brilliant idea for the movie. It is really good to see a movie that uses the idea from a movie and works really well. I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone. I really liked this movie and I think it is a really good movie. I hope that more movies like this are made.

The final comment: "Mou" (1974), set in 1978, is the first movie of the director Cahit Hamon, who made a long list of films, from "La Bestie" (1965) to "Le tour du soleil" (1954), but still it's a must see. A good, entertaining story about a woman's, Karen Auteuil's character's and her daughter's life in a young couple's work life. Karen has a high degree of psychological tension and, also, a very difficult life with a strange family life. Auteuil is excellent and her performances are extraordinary. The rest of the cast are OK, but the best ones are. The movie is nice to watch. It's definitely worth a watch.

This is one of those films that you will either love or hate. I am a fan of Michel Hazanavicius, and I was very impressed with this film. It is a very well-made film, with great performances from the entire cast. The plot is not exactly original, but it is well-written and well-executed. The plot is simple. A man who has spent his life in the army, is now a private detective. He is sent to a small town in order to find out why the local mayor is committing suicide. He is not interested in the truth, but in the money. He is sent to a private investigator, who he learns is a very nasty man, and is in fact a drug-dealer. The private investigator, who is a woman, is very good at finding the truth, and is very skilled at what she does. She has a very unique style of talking to people, and she is very charming. This film is very dark, and is very suspenseful. The film is also very intense, and you will be on the edge of your seat. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes films about private investigators. I rate it 8/10.

I'll try and keep this short and sweet, this movie was brilliant! It took my breath away in every single scene, every single frame. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. The movie is based on a real story, the book was also very good, but this movie was a little more real, it felt like you were in the middle of the real story. I was very impressed by how the characters interacted with each other, they were so believable, it was like you were watching a documentary. If you are a true crime fan, or want to see a film that is both funny and dramatic, then this is for you! If you want to see a good drama, check out a real story instead. It's a very good movie, and it will keep you guessing for quite a while. It's probably one of the best I've seen in a long time, but I highly recommend it.

How can an honest officer, who tries to do his job by a strict code of honour, be so blinded by his lust for money? Our officer is a detective, who has had two victims of human trafficking. He starts to wonder whether he is making the right decision by using his skills, which are the ones he has honed in life. He tries to get the word out to the public, so that people will be aware of the situation. He is a detective who looks at the problem from a moral and ethical point of view, rather than a criminal one. He begins to think about his choices and why he made them. He is then forced to come to the conclusion that he is not really making the right choice, but that he is looking for a shortcut. He sees the situation from another side. He is able to see the nature of the problem and how he can help the girls escape. The fact that he is able to do this is what enables him to make the right decision. I really liked this movie, because it is honest and not professional. This movie is not a Hollywood blockbuster and it is worth watching, even though it is a bit slow in some parts. I recommend you to watch this movie, it is interesting and interesting.

I really liked the movie, but I really wish it had been more "fleshed out". I think the movie would have been better if they had gone into more detail on the events leading up to the crime, and how they ended up with the guns. The police officer, in the beginning of the movie, was very quick to react to the situation, and his actions at the end were not exactly logical. I think the police officer should have been given a bit more time to think about what he did, and then made a more rational decision. Also, the movie would have been better if it had been more of a thriller. The movie did have some suspense, but it was mostly due to the mystery of the crime. I think the movie could have been better if they had focused more on the crime itself, and less on the mystery. The movie was very good, and I recommend it to anyone who likes a movie with a mystery and suspense.
