  • msmichel's rating of the film Mademoiselle Fifi

    Val Lewton produced WWII film about occupation in France during the Prussian-French war that served as an allegory to current events. Directed by Robert Wise this Simone Simon starrer is a short and enjoyable film that falls short of any loftier intents it might have had. Best, the second journey after the elite have made their assumptions and conveniently again forgotten their so called lesser. Worth a watch.

  • CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Mademoiselle Fifi

    Los mejores momentos del filme son para cuando una patriota se convierte en mártir. La sensibilidad correo el alma y clama por la impotencia. Es la mujer pobre sacrifiándo su honor por partida doble o quedándose de hambre en una carroza. Esto por cierto implica la presencia de ese personaje tan despreciable. Fifi es un perverso. Aplica una tortura de la humillación que araña el orgullo, aunque llama a la resistencia.
