  1. El Biffo's rating of the film The Possessed

    I put up with 100 minutes of nihilist gibberish before Isabelle Huppert appeared onscreen for a total of 14 minutes, at most. She's always fabulous, of course, but even the most diehard fans can skip this one, or skip the first 100 minutes anyway. Also the last 15 minutes. I read the book by Dostoyevsky about 40 years ago and I remember it was a lot better than this made-for-TV drivel.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Possessed

    Une excellente adaptation fidèle, mais épurée du célèbre roman éponyme de Fédor Dostoievski, par un metteur en scène d'origine polonaise et des acteurs essentiellement français, semblait a priori une gageure difficile à relever. Il faut reconnaître que la réussite est probante et parfaite...

  3. Ale/M's rating of the film The Possessed

    Disastrous reduction of one of the masterpieces of literature. Situations and characters incomprehensible to those who have not read the book and ridiculous for anyone who has read it. Do not waste your time watching it.
