    Bien joué Dustin Hoff...pardon François Cluzet! The Greatest at sea "Once I wanted to be the greatest/No wind or waterfall could stall me/And then came the rush of the flood/Stars at night turned deep to dust' <3 Secures the 1st place off the coast of Portugal. Ofc. Nudes for X'mas. Hotmail emails in an age of GoPros. Losing on purpose for humanistic reasons. Yet celebrated as a prodigal son. Boy are the sponsors mad

  • lou.'s rating of the film Turning Tide

    J'ai malheureusement vu ce film doublé en Italien et c'était franchement agaçant (et je ne dirais donc pas des dialogues). L'histoire, en soi, aurait pu être intéressant; par contre, la narration est parfois ennuyante et glisse banalement dans le 'sentimental: quasi edulcorée. De certains scènes franchement bizarres (ridicules?) Enfin, la fin - disons - prévue?#meh
