What are people saying?

  • Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film The Hussy

    imdb synopsis: "Misfit François kidnaps young Mado and takes her to live with him in the attic of his parents' home. A strange relationship evolves till the police comes upon them. ". Not as strong and well made as the beautiful Sundays and Cybele, but good though. It seems only French (and Italian perhaps) can/could make such good and cold/serious suggestive films between pre-teens and adults :D
