L'été meurtrier

Jean Becker France, 1983

J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film One Deadly Summer

Isabelle Adjani! The older french Monica Bellucci I would say. Here she is at the age of 28 & even today, at the age of 61, she didn't lose the wonder of her beauty. The movie is to be split in two parts. The 1st is extremely boring, the 2nd extremely interesting with a lot of unexpected, unpredictable twists & turns. Dramatic surprises. Isabelle Adjani acts very well, but at the end, it is not more than average.
