Taken with 'The Devil's Advocate' and 'The Last Exorcism', I was interested to see what's happened to Dario Argento since his last great film. I was totally shocked when I first saw the 'House of the Devil' and the images and sound (despite some classical music and music video from the 80s) didn't quite fit the situation of the film, but since then it has gotten worse. Maybe 'House of the Devil' was a bit too long, and the change in the tempo (from loud and annoying to quiet and melodramatic) doesn't really fit, but I think 'Death Proof' is an even worse film and one of the worst of Dario's career. 'House of the Devil' may be a perfect example of a poor script and poor editing. The music is loud and completely inappropriate, the images are cheesy and unnatural, and the story is incomprehensible. If Dario Argento's career wasn't over, I probably would rate this film even lower. Still, 'House of the Devil' is an awful film and Dario is the worse of his works. Overall, this film is a great example of how an Italian director could ruin a great film with his poor script and terrible editing. If you like Dario Argento, or just want to see a great film, you should definitely check out 'House of the Devil', but I would not recommend it to anyone, even if you're a fan of Argento.

The song is sung in the first scene of the movie and so the movie goes in a straight linear direction. It's not a bad movie but it's not a good movie either. The film is shot in a very painterly and beautiful way with the colors that are supposed to be specific to the music of the film and the film itself is very good but the story is too simple and dull. It's not a movie that can be enjoyed for very long because you'll lose your interest in it very quickly. I can only recommend it to fans of the music or just music lovers. The music and the film is very good but not good enough to recommend it to the average movie goer.

In a time when the mainstream action film is dominated by the likes of "Top Gun" and "The Hurt Locker", a little film called "Félicité" from France has managed to go places rarely seen in the French film industry. The title refers to the fact that this movie is about a woman and the ending is tied to the theme of death and the pursuit of what lies ahead. It's a pretty difficult theme to convey in a film and it's an artistic masterpiece in itself. Jean-Pierre Jeunet has managed to pull it off and with the same style he did in "The Arrival". The film is about a woman, played by Uma Thurman, who is beginning to question her own life, in particular her marriage. It is set in the 1970s, she is from the island of Martinique, and is about to turn 50. After a plane crash, she is being questioned by her ex-husband, played by John Malkovich, who is trying to prove that she is insane. It is clear that she is on a journey of self-discovery and wants to live an open and meaningful life. It's a very difficult question to answer and the film is not for everyone. There is no obvious explanation for the theme, and the ending is very hard to stomach. It's an emotional film that will not be everyone's cup of tea. If you have a love for the history and art of film then you will enjoy it, otherwise, it will be a little too intense for some viewers. But, if you are into the deep films, then it will be a perfect choice.

I liked this film a lot. The photography was beautiful. The cinematography was beautiful. I don't think there was any wrong with the film, it was a great film, and I loved it. My brother, who is a painter and a photographer, and I went to the theater and it was great. I thought it was amazing, I really enjoyed the film. I also think that this film could have been better, there was not much that I could really comment on it. I would recommend it, but not the same people that I love.

I am not sure what to make of this movie. On the one hand it is beautiful, poetic, and thought-provoking. On the other hand it is quite boring. It is like the end of the line. It is not "chic", but it is not "romantic". It is not "educational". It is not "excellent" either. In short, it is not worth your time.

Here we are, at least five years after the passing of Bouchard, and the once-world-famous French actor (as well as the pop singer) is still going strong, albeit in increasingly smaller roles. I must admit that, when I first heard that he would be playing a piano player in this film, I had high hopes. As it turned out, I was pretty disappointed. The story is a nice, interesting one. But the way it's told is not very good. The film has an interesting structure, where we see the dynamics of the relationship between the two main characters, played by Bouchard and Claude Brasseur. And, at the end, we have the conclusion of the story, which I consider a pretty uninteresting one. All the actors are good in their roles, especially the young ones. I must admit that I was quite surprised by Bouchard's performance, but it's not a great performance. His character is rather weak and the fact that he can't really express himself properly, makes him seem quite cold and he doesn't really show us his emotions. But, unfortunately, this is the only negative thing I can say about this film. I think that the film should have been better made. The directing is good. The cinematography is excellent. But the story is not very good. The use of the movie soundtrack is interesting, and it's one of the best things about this film. But the music is good and the film does have some good shots. But it's just not enough to make up for the weak story and the weak characters. The film is a little bit overrated. I'd say it's not as good as "La femme infierte", but it's not bad as "Les Contes de la liberte". But I'm not really sure what's the point of that film. I think it's not a good movie to watch, though.

A young Frenchman's journey to the Adirondack Mountains and the epic battle between a whaling ship and the giant squid are set against the backdrop of the coming of the new millennium. I have to say I was surprised by the quality of the film, since the trailers for this film were quite disappointing. I was expecting a travesty of a film as far as quality goes, but I'm happy to say that the film was not one. The visuals are fantastic and the story has plenty of depth and emotion. It's very impressive to see the set pieces that were filmed on a budget, and I found the acting to be very good. It is very difficult to tell what was going on in some scenes, but I must say that I did enjoy the film and it was an excellent piece of work from director Yann Demange.

I think the story of a woman who can't stop thinking about the death of her beloved is very interesting, and I thought the movie was very well made. I didn't know how much this movie was based on reality. It was very interesting to see the film's beginning. The music was also very good. The first scene with the song "I'm Afraid of People" was also very good. The characters were very well written and the actors did a great job. I thought this movie was very good, I give it 7/10.

A number of critics have claimed that "La Vie Est Belle" is a manipulative film and that the final scene, where a character flees from a car accident to a deserted street, is staged. While this is certainly true, the film is not that manipulative. The point of this film is to show how the end of a relationship can be so devastating that it breaks apart. The real problem with the ending of "La Vie Est Belle" is that we never really see the end of it, but instead we are presented with a more emotional scene of the two in a car and then we are taken to a lake where they sit and reminisce about their lives before their breakup. I don't think this is particularly emotionally moving, but it is a different type of ending that leaves the viewer with an understanding of what happened. It also shows us what these people go through when they have a breakup. I guess this film could be called "two people who have been separated" because it does have a sort of sadness in it, but I felt like the ending was done in a way that was more emotional than it was real. Overall, I think that the ending is excellent and the film is very powerful.

In my opinion, the movie tells us something that no other film ever could. The fight between the old and the young. I liked this film because it shows the truth of the old vs the young. This film also shows the truth of the rivalry between the religious and the secular. Finally, the film shows the fact that the movie, "La Vie Boheme", (a French title for "Love is Blind"), is still the best. "La Vie Boheme" tells us a message that has never been told before. I hope that this message will be told by others in other films, and by others, and it will be told by other people. The film "La Vie Boheme" is a true masterpiece, and, although the story is an historical one, the movie is an inspirational one. The movie is all about love and "la vie boheme".

That's what you would expect in a film made in French in English with French dialogue and subtitles. That's also what you'd expect in an adaptation of a novel by a Canadian writer. So why does it have to be a French film? The film in question is La Vie en rose, adapted by Claude Chabrol and directed by François Ozon. You might say it's a rather boring story told in a predictable way, and it does indeed lack the engaging wit and depth of the novel. What Chabrol is good at is character development and story telling. In "La Vie en rose", the best story telling here is the one that occurs between two characters, played by the actors Jean-Pierre Morel and Jean-Hughes Drouot. Morel plays Monsieur de Lorraine, a frustrated painter who believes the painting of Jesus is incomplete and therefore must move on to an even more ambitious project, as a way of curing his narcissistic feelings. Drouot plays the oblivious painter who refuses to acknowledge his own faults, including his short attention span, his inability to get along with others and his tendency to drink excessively. It's only by the actions of Morel and Drouot that Lorraine begins to discover who he really is and, at first, is given a moment of doubt when he confronts Drouot with a painting that his own child has painted. Morel and Drouot spend most of the film discussing the painting, with Morel reminding Drouot that his own child has done the same thing. It's through this dialogue that Morel becomes more deeply involved in his character, even if the story itself isn't anything new. Morel, by now, has developed a special relationship with Drouot, which is one of the more interesting aspects of the film. Another major development is the relationship between Morel and Drouot's mother, played by a lovely Christine Baranski. We see Morel in a mirror, almost showing Drouot the mistake his mother has made and that Drouot must learn to live with. Morel in turn has developed a special relationship with Baranski, a relationship that is shown through their many personal visits to the same hotel. He has learned a lot from Baranski, and they have become a team. As the movie progresses, the relationship between Morel and Baranski becomes even more intimate and fruitful. Morel and Drouot become friends. They grow more distant, but Morel continues to know Drouot's mother, and that brings them closer together. In the end, Morel realizes that Drouot has become a man, and that he is himself capable of understanding the love and compassion he has for Morel and his mother. In this film, Morel seems to be rather detached from his own story, and even his own relationship with Drouot, even though he is the one in the film who will face a major crisis in his life. The story is good, but the characters are forgettable and the film is not an improvement over "The Great Beauty" or "La Vie en rose". I give it a 7 out of 10. I don't know if I would have given it a higher rating, but I wouldn't have minded either. For fans of Chabrol, you'll find a nice addition to the collection of his films. You can tell that he is a director who knows what he's doing, and if you are a fan of his, you will be pleased to see this film in the collection.

Well, this was a very nice film. Although I felt that the only real problem with it was the end. However, overall, I really enjoyed it. The film follows a group of South African black metal musicians as they try to get a big budget deal. For those unfamiliar with the music, they play in a style that is similar to the "neo-classical" music of the 60s and 70s. I would have liked to see some more of the music in the film, as the music was beautiful and I think it was a nice way to represent the period of time in the film. Overall, the music was good and I loved the casting of the lead actress. The other actors did a good job with their parts as well. Overall, this was a very good film that would have been a lot better had it been a little shorter. I'd recommend it to people who are into the genre of black metal music, as it is very well done.

I liked the movie and enjoyed watching it. I also enjoyed the concept. But I think the writer/director of the film has been a bit too over-the-top about some of the characters in the film. I think the writers of the film could have done a better job in showing the significance of each character and the connection they have to each other. I also thought the ending was a little confusing. I think a little more foreshadowing would have helped with the ending. The film is great and worth watching. I just think the writer/director of the film could have used a little more foreshadowing.

I enjoyed this film from the first minute, I think it was well done and it is good to see that the French are getting it right. I think the soundtrack is great, the best soundtrack I've heard from French cinema. There are good performances and the story is interesting. The ending of the film is very interesting and I enjoyed the final few minutes, although I think it is not enough to satisfy the viewer.

This movie reminds me a lot of the 2007 movie "Boys Don't Cry". The main character is also named "Tracy" and both movies had a teen coming of age story line that is very similar. If you haven't seen that movie you should. It was great! But this movie is about two girls who are at a convent where their father has left them and is back in the present time. The movie is also about a young man who is being led to the convent by the nuns to learn the secrets of the convent and of the convent. Both movies are good and the ending is very similar.

I haven't read the book yet, but the movie gives the impression of the book being a little bit too long and not getting to the point. It might have worked better without the narration and getting to the point faster. But the narration was a little too long and made me feel like I was watching a play. It also became a little too sappy and did not let me connect with the characters. There were some interesting plot points that were not revealed at the start. I had to give it a 7 out of 10 for the way it went. I'm also not sure if there was a plot to the movie. It was just a story about a girl who goes to New York for a job. I was also surprised that it had the American flag in the movie. I thought it would be more appropriate to have a French flag or French song instead. Maybe they did not want the movie to be too political or political oriented. The movie is worth watching, but it could have been better.

This movie is not for the faint hearted. The "Berg" played by Vincent Lindon and his family are not in the least bit sympathetic. They don't even feel bad for themselves. The Bogey family is run by a man named Erik Kipvør who is not very likable either. His wife, Margarita, is a stern old widow who can't seem to find a replacement for her husband. He is treated with a great deal of contempt by his daughter, Irene, and by his grandchildren, Andreas and Olaf. There is a musical-style "love song" to her, and there is a "fantasy" song where a little boy is trying to convince her to come home and join him. While there are some scenes that are very realistic, such as when she is rejected by the family who shunned her, and when she is left alone on the doorstep to go and ask for help, it is a movie that does not try to be uplifting. It is more realistic than "The Grand Budapest Hotel" (which I also have not seen) and so far more realistic than "The Deer Hunter". I think that is the best compliment that can be paid to this movie.

I have not seen the movie, but from reading the reviews and reviews from viewers that have seen it, I thought it would be a good film to watch. I was quite wrong. The movie is very slow and boring. I am a big fan of Béatrice Nott's work and I think she is a fantastic actress, but this movie was too slow and her character was just not believable. The directing is quite poor, and the movie does not even have a strong theme. The acting is just okay, and not outstanding. I think the movie could have been much better if it was made with a stronger director and actress. In conclusion, I think this movie could have been better if it was made with a strong director and actress. This movie was just not good.

To be fair, it is a simple story. In some places it is funny and some parts are tough to watch. However, I really enjoyed it. I liked the characters, and I liked the way the movie plays out. The theme is very real, and the way the story is told is a breath of fresh air for a genre that is tired of showing the same thing over and over again. It is also a great film for those who like to see a romantic comedy with a plot twist, because this movie doesn't try to be anything more than what it is. It isn't your typical romantic comedy. It is what it is, and that is what counts. It has a great story, and it isn't afraid to show the characters in a very realistic way. I really liked how it dealt with religion, and the way it portrayed the family dynamics. I thought it was funny that there was a scene where the father takes a drink of water from the toilet, and a servant runs in and starts to wash it, and one of the servants asks him if it is his first time, to which the father replies 'Yes.' To top it off, it is also a very enjoyable film. In my opinion, it is a good watch.

This film is pretty entertaining. For those who like movies with little drama, it is a good one. The best part of this movie is the acting. Everyone did a good job, and the songs are actually quite good. I think it's worth to watch, but I wouldn't suggest it to anyone. It's not a great movie, but it is worth to see.
