  • José Neves's rating of the film Pretend I'm Not Here

    PC. Even if i wasn't waiting for a thriller a la Hitchcock, De Palma or Carpenter, i also didn't expected that its fictional démarche would be so little exploited and instigating. It's, after all, just another "French" film about family relations and affective depressions without any memorable moment, not even the threesome, so "a la carte" and just because. I do not have to pretend, he wasn't really there.
