  • Miguel Plante's rating of the film Neomanila

    Ça aurait pu être un bon film! Je me sens mal de ne lui donner que deux étoiles, parce que la direction photo, la distribution et le montage sont bons. Mais l'intrigue se perd, on cherche longtemps les motivations des personnages et on se fout un peu trop de ce qui les anime. Heureusement, tout s'éclaircit à la fin, mais le mal a déjà été fait. Heureusement, quelques coups de feu m'ont réveillé au milieu du film.
