What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Justin de Marseille

    "It's worse than a movie!" Amazing shots abound in this top-notch, uniquely stylish French crime picture full of memorable Pagnol-esque Marseilles characters and snappy French gangster dialogue. Many fabulous scenes unnecessary to the plot because it's just that kinda movie. I'm gonna watch this at least two more times. Probably more. Gorgeous new restoration by L'Immagine Ritrovata (Bologna) and Digimage (Paris).
