Loz Loory's rating of the film La sentinelle

Loved the scampering, creepy tone of this film. Mathias is fascinating to watch: his stumbling exterior belies an intensely focused, morally motivated interior. William's recitation of the Richard III speech was a perfect introduction to his character, as was his recitation of Hamlet's "To Be or Not to Be" as Mathias takes decisive action. Wonderful moments with Mathias and the skull. Alas, Yorick!
