What are people saying?

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Circus World

    Une oeuvre plutôt modeste du solide Hathaway, qui nous avait habitué à un peu plus d'allant, sur un scénario a priori plutôt intéressant qui avait séduit un certain temps Nicholas Ray, puis le grand Frank Capra, à laquelle on peut surtout reprocher une constante niaiserie sentimentale et une structure de l'ensemble lourdement bancale et banale, malgré une honnête prestation des principaux acteurs.
