  • jimmymarkum's rating of the film Paris Awakens

    A teenager joins his father to live with him after a 4-year absence and is quickly seduced by his father's girlfriend, a teen like him. It's roughly the same plot as that of another movie, but which one?! Grrrr... I had great expectations from this one: I did get to listen to Debaser in the background at one point... a song that didn't occur to me to play for a number of years, but that didn't seem to be enough
