What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Aphrodite, Goddess of Love

    A screenplay co-written by Sergio Leone with Isabelle -'Bob le Flambeur'-Corey and Irène-'Léon Morin, Priest'-Tunc as lead actresses. In a peplum. Surprise, surprise, the movie is good with a production design that's not so ridiculous after all. The dance numbers are watchable, there are some interesting twists and the bad guy, counsellor Erasto, absolutely appalling. Recommended to movie lovers.
