What are people saying?

  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Constant Factor

    Une œuvre polonaise qui dépeint avec complicité et conviction, un homme ordinaire pétri par une constante rigueur morale, dans une trajectoire de vie dépourvue de compromissions, d'allégeances aux prébendes et aux malversations diverses. Cette rigueur morale, vertueuse et probe, lui confère un statut christique, peut-être remis en question dans l'énigmatique et dramatique épilogue. www.cinefiches.com
