What are people saying?

  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Reivers

    Rien de bien intéressant dans cette production américaine où Steve Mac Queen essaye de tirer malgré tout son épingle du jeu, mais se voit sans conteste ravir le rôle de vedette par une voiture, la splendide Wynston Flyer, étincelante et omniprésente. Reste une vision du sud des Etats-Unis relativement honnête, malgré un scénario souvent poussif et tiré par les cheveux, crépus bien sûr...
