What are people saying?

  • Simone Visentini's rating of the film Yanks

    A great melo inspired by Catch-22 & Brideshead Revisited (it sounds quite creepy!). First it's a beautiful & adult love story between Devene & Redgreve. Eichhorn is dazzling and the duo Roberts/Melody put such a great effort in the drama acting. Remarkable ending in crescendo. One of the last movie of Rachel Roberts, who committed suicide just fourteen months later.
