  • El Biffo's rating of the film Pigalle

    This film was a hell of a surprise. True indy style, in the spirit of Cassavetes, unpolished camera shots, and performances that seem unrehearsed. Definitely not the Paris of Truffaut, this film is so raw, it is the underbelly of Paris, even more raw and ugly than in IRREVERSIBLE and like that film, it kicks you in the gut, knocks your teeth out, and stabs you in the heart. 4.5 stars.
