What are people saying?

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Edith and Marcel

    1) Vous prenez l'histoire mythique de la liaison tumultueuse entre Edith Piaf et le boxeur Marcel Cerdan 2) vous inventez une seconde histoire entre un prisonnier de guerre, son épistolaire compagnon de stalag et "leur" marraine 3) vous mélangez maladroitement les deux récits en incluant lourdes fioritures et pompeux artifices pseudo-romantiques en quantité débordante et vive la potée "Lelouch" www.cinefiches.com
