What are people saying?

  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Lily of Belgium

    Une petite fille en compagnie d'une biche. Elle apporte à son grand-père un majestueux iris qui permettra à ce dernier de lui raconter la merveilleuse histoire de la fleur, visitée par les papillons, libellules et autres insectes, mais aussi son utilisation comme pont, à de méchantes bestioles armées et fort vindicatives. Emouvant !
