What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film City for Sale

    A mysterious atmosphere, a dozen first-rate French actors of the 90's, hilarious thoughts about unemployment in the industrial northern part of France, disturbing descriptions of the secret activities of the giant pharmaceutical corporations. A highly recommended film of this director (still in activity !) only a few movie lovers appreciate.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film City for Sale

    Outre un respect continu dans son style des plus personnels, Mocky, cette fois-ci ne gâche pas ses scènes comme à son habitude, dans un bouillonnement brouillon, mais parvient systématiquement à maîtriser son scénario, dans un délire absurde où se côtoie l'énormité, l'absurde mâtiné d'une logorrhée verbale dense et fort ubuesque. On en redemande, en souhaitant au cinéaste bonne continuation.www.cinefiches.com
