What are people saying?

  • Quentin's rating of the film Sade

    Minimalistic movie on a small part of Sade's life. More raw than Quills but less entertaining and crazy too. Actors are probably better in Quills. Finally Quills has more clichés and feels weirdly american to me (I'm french). Daniel Auteuil is probably closer to the real Sade, when Geoffrey Rush almost creates a new Sade from scratch (which I enjoyed more than the Daniel Auteuil's one).
