Ratings & Reviews

  1. Hyperion_333's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    Strangely literary for Melville. Thrilling to see his unrivalled understanding of fraternal violence relocated to an adolescent milieu.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    Une oeuvre solide qui transpire totalement l'atmosphère et le point de vue de Jean Cocteau, réalisateur en filigrane de ce film... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Ethan's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    This is a fast paced and intimate look at the terrible games of cat and mouse that siblings play with each other. Quite possibly the most acidic siblings ever to grace the screen and they do it in such a cold and calculating manner.

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    These two! Like eating crayfish in bed.

  5. Muraki's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    this is a film that feels like it's holding memories, deep & great memories

  6. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    While Melville takes the directorial credit, original author Cocteau's influence is undeniable. The incestuous relationship at the narrative's heart is an arduous one to endure-the constant arguing & dramatics are a suffocating onslaught. Nicole Stéphane dominates with a powerfully unhinged performance, yet her mite creates a one sided watch. A predictable climax epitomizes the lack of emotional investment throughout

  7. chanandre's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    Melville et Cocteau & Decae: le ciel, quoi...

  8. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    Still a haunting experience. A great collaboration. Nicole Stephane (de Rothschild, FYI) gives a tremendous performance.

  9. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    un trocito de veneno para la imaginación

  10. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

  11. Daniela's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    A very apt title for the film. The operatic atmosphere was awesome.

  12. Garçon Manqué's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    hearing jean cocteau's voice, narrating his own novel, made me smile.

  13. Filip Akerman's rating of the film Les enfants terribles

    I knew about "The Dreamers" (which I haven't seen) but also "Trouble Every Day" is very similar to Cocteau's story. Even if Melville's film is the more brutal!
