Finally, I found a good thriller to watch. I love action films, and I love to see realistic and well-thought out action films. This movie is excellent in all areas. The plot is fascinating, the characters are well thought-out, and the movie has an excellent opening. I recommend this film highly. The cast is superb, and there are several twists that will keep you guessing, but it's never quite what you think. My biggest complaint is that the movie isn't as consistent as it could be. Some scenes are extremely intense, but the rest of the film is a bit slow, and you'll be just as confused as I was. I liked that the movie kept you guessing, and that it was well-written, but I wish it had more tension, or more mystery, or a lot more suspense, etc. I also felt that the film was a bit inconsistent at times. For instance, the first 10 minutes of the movie are very suspenseful, and it shows in the movie, but then it slows down, and we just get a boring scene. I understand that it has to be one way, but it is a little hard to get into. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie, and it was very suspenseful, but it's not the best thriller I've ever seen, and I have seen a few in my life. I think this movie is worth a watch, and it is worth seeing.

In 1983, a French mother, Thierry Routh, and her son, Gaspard Courtois, a photojournalist, decide to move to Paris with her daughter, Sonia. But while Thierry looks for a job in a photo shop, Gaspard is anxious about his future and in particular about his future prospects. As the time goes by, the two men become more distant and eventually Gaspard becomes suspicious of Thierry's motives, and Thierry falls for Gaspard's daughter. Thierry and Gaspard's paths gradually cross and the inevitable crisis is laid before us. Jean-Marie Lebeau is a bold filmmaker who has employed some very interesting techniques and techniques of which I must commend him for, for instance, the way he directs camera, the way he uses the medium of the black and white to tell a story in a modern, easy way, and the very odd and strange way in which he has variously arranged the different elements of a story, this in addition to his method of using a couple of shots at a time, something which the French director seems to have mastered. Lebeau's music, however, doesn't always fit the mood and feels quite out of place, not to mention the whole "telephone-messages" thing. If you're willing to take the time to go and see this, the movie itself is quite good. I have to say that although I had the opportunity to see the movie twice in the theater, I have always preferred to watch it on DVD. It's a rather dull movie, but one which has the power to bring out your inner feelings. Overall, I'd say that this movie is worth seeing, and that even if you don't like the way the film is filmed, you should at least like it, because it gives you something to think about. If you liked the movie, I'd suggest you to read some Jean-Marie Lebeau's films. In addition to 'Je ne suis pas tous' and 'Jean-Marie Lebeau', he also made a number of other great films, like 'Elle', 'Le jardin' and 'Le ferme'.

This film is a bit of a problem. We see a couple, Louis and Anne, who are both very good people in their own way. Louis is a photographer and Anne is a fine artist. At first, they are on a nice and high note. Then, things take a turn for the worse. They are getting increasingly involved in something wrong. It is hard to say what it is but it is wrong. When they go to see their lawyer they go with their lawyer who in turn takes them to a psychiatrist. When they go home they tell their parents. Louis is not happy with the state of his marriage. They are also not happy. The therapist is not happy either. The parents have to take the couple to court. There is also a teenage son of the couple who is using drugs and being very rebellious. It all starts to unravel when the son disappears. Then, Anne starts getting very worried about Louis. She has to take a trip to France to find her husband. She is shocked to find that he is married to someone else. It is very sad because she did not even know that her husband was living with someone else. She starts to really think that something is not right with Louis. In fact, she does not even know that he is married to another person. In the end, she comes to the conclusion that there is something wrong. The problem with this film is that it is too slow. Louis is bored with his marriage. He seems to be doing nothing about it. Anne is depressed. The doctor who has diagnosed Louis is taking his wife to a psychiatrist. But he does not go to see his wife. The wife is not convinced about the diagnosis. The parents are very unhappy. The young son is trying to do something very wrong. There are a lot of unanswered questions. We do not know if it is the boy's parents or Louis. There are many questions which are never answered. The problem is that the viewer is never sure whether what we see is happening in the past or is happening in the present. It is not clear. The viewer is always wondering if it is a present or a past. That does not help the film because you are left with a lot of unanswered questions. The French did not do very well in this film. The film looks very poor. The camera is in an awful place. In a movie like this, you want the camera to be in a better place. The story could have been much better if the camera had been in a better place. I would have liked the film a lot better if it had been in better place. The film is very good. I am not very good with French films but this one is very good. It is very dark. I like that. It is very slow. It is also very good.

The "Corbinello" is the last character in the novel by Cervantes. In this film the protagonist is not a man of steel, but rather an "underdog", who loses her "love" in the end. It is a mystery that her last love was someone she never knew and possibly who she is not as romantic as she believes herself to be. The movie is very good, but it is not the perfect film that I would have liked. But if you can give it a try, I think it is worth it.

Daniel Auteuil as the gifted thief Pierre is just what the doctor ordered. I've seen lots of film, some good and some not so good but this is by far one of the better ones. Auteuil is always one of my favourite actors but his performance here is just what the doctor ordered. He is believable, he's real, there is no smoke and mirrors about him. It's not a film with any great performances but if you see it for its acting and a great job by the supporting actors you will see a great film.

I'm sure most of you have seen the trailer for The Raid: Redemption, a movie about a group of fighters who band together to try to kill some drug lord, but only one member of their group survives. When I saw the trailer I was really excited about seeing it. The movie did not disappoint me. While it is not a flawless film, it does have a lot to offer. The story is interesting, with some action scenes and a few twists along the way. The story is told from the perspective of the characters, with some flashbacks, and some of the characters having multiple backstories. This creates a feeling of wanting to know more about these characters, but also just wanting to know more about what happened. The story itself is interesting, and sometimes surprising. The pacing of the film is also great, and the character development is decent. The action scenes are some of the best action scenes I've seen in a while, the camera work and filming is great, the music is great, and I actually found the movie very entertaining. While the action in the film is great, it's not the best action scene in the world. The story is good, but the execution of the story is lacking, and the action in the film is mostly slow. This makes the story and action scenes really not very engaging to watch, and this is a major issue with the film. The Raid: Redemption has a lot to offer. It's great action, and the story is great. It has a lot of great acting, and a good performance from the main character. This is a great movie, and it will definitely make you want to see it. 7/10

It's another run-of-the-mill film that drags on and on with a predictable ending that leaves you no hope that you will not be left hanging at the end of this overlong and boring bore of a film. The story is about a man who has just moved into a new house and his life is about to take a dramatic turn when he witnesses the murder of his brother and his wife and sister in law. The man is seen talking to his wife who is a prostitute and he is brought to the police station to be interviewed and to prove his innocence. The film has some dark and depressing scenes but the drama is just not very interesting to watch and is the typical French film where the acting is mediocre, the editing is boring and the story is just too slow. The only interesting thing about the film is the performance by Vincent Cassel who has a very good role. This film is overlong and it feels that you are sitting in front of a big TV screen for hours and hours. Even though the ending is predictable, it's still boring and it doesn't give you any clues on what will happen next. Overall, this film is a drag and is not very entertaining and is a mediocre film that is worth watching only if you're bored and you want to waste some time.

A good film, the plot is a little hard to follow. After reading the plot, I think that I missed a little bit of information. All the 'information' you need is provided in the first few pages of the book. It is a good, fast paced film, with lots of violence, gun violence, and cars running over people, and a good story. I found the story moving, and it is well-acted, well directed, and good, well-paced film.

Even though the film is probably a little too long, it's still a fun ride. As the film goes along, the characters gradually unravel and reveal themselves to be rather complex. Overall, it's a good film. Just don't expect too much.

As soon as the film ended, I went to the telly to find out what the film had been about. It was about two detectives on a case, a white man and a black man, who go into a building, to question a man and discover that he had been dead for 18 years. As they go to the room where the body is, the detective has a revelation that he had killed the man. At this point, the film became a real thriller, and I thought, is the film only about the detective and the white man or is there something else to it? And I was not disappointed. The film is set in the 80s, and a detective, played by one of my favourite actors of all time, Patrick McGoohan (He does the accent so well and has a terrific voice), goes into a building and meets a black man, played by David Suchet. They speak to each other, they begin to get intimate, and they decide to go to the building where the black man is buried and ask the man about his life. The detective finds out that the man died in a car accident in the 1970s, and he had not been paying attention to his life, but had decided to start over in life. The detective asks the man if he knows anything about his family. The man is not at all clear, but he begins to tell them the details of his life. We then find out that the black man, played by Jean Reno, was not in the police force because he was not good enough to be there, and they send him to work for the people in the building, who believe he is a murderer. The two detectives then go to the building where the white man is buried, to find out what he knows about his life, and about the woman, played by Felicity Jones, who he was interested in. They find out that he died in a car accident, but when they go to the accident scene, they find that there was another white man involved. He is now in the building with the two detectives, and they try to find out what he knows. This film is about the idea of the 'whiteness' in a police officer, and the idea of a white man committing a crime to a black man. The film tells the story of a white man who is white, and the idea of a black man who is black. The film tells the story of a white man and the black man, who are different people. I also thought the film was well directed. It was very well acted, with the two detectives being very good. I thought the film was very well directed, and I liked the way it ended. I think that this film is very well done, and I think that it is one of the best films of 2004. This is a good thriller, and it is well done. It is well directed, and it is well acted. I think that it is well worth seeing.

I admit that it's not often that I can say that I'm a "French film fan". I'd be lying if I said that I really did love all of the French films in the 70s, especially The Godfather and Resevoir Dogs, but not that long ago I was very impressed with three films (Moulin Rouge!, Dog Day Afternoon and The French Connection) that had been the talk of the French film community for quite a while. There was only one thing missing for me: a single, big French film. Now, I've been watching films in the same vein as this for quite a while, but not enough to be able to identify with the feeling I had when I saw The Royal Tenenbaums. It was not the idea of a supposedly disfigured man and a woman having their own personal drama that was most apparent to me, but the over the top, over-the-top and over-acted performances that is so common in the French film world. The acting of the Royal Tenenbaums was particularly awkward and melodramatic. However, that's not the case with this film. The performances in this film are wonderful and it is worth watching this film for their acting alone. The plot is a bit convoluted but it's not hard to follow. The performances are superb, particularly from the entire cast. The special effects and cinematography are spectacular. The sound is excellent. The editing is interesting and the pacing is fast. Overall, this film is a must see, even though I wouldn't recommend it to anyone without a very good reason.

A good film about a man who was originally from the north of France, but who was sent to France to join a Catholic Order of Knights Templar in the 18th century. His mother was an African woman, and she knew the truth that her husband was a jew and that he married her to keep his promises to his Lord. He tried to commit suicide, but then decided to go back to France to get his money and family back. He becomes a judge, who is a crusader himself, and his wife. He is also in a love triangle with a certain military officer who is more a man's man than the judges and judges in France. This film was interesting because it focused on how the judge and his wife lived, the trials and tribulations of being a crusader and the trials and tribulations of being a judge. The acting was good, and the scenery was very realistic. A must see!

A pretty good movie with some nice twists. It is a good reminder of how we watch movies, how it can be powerful in the wrong hands. The movie starts with a good start, with a man getting into a car and taking it down a highway, which was shot very well. However the story is not so great, and for the most part, the movie is just following the guy, who also gets into trouble, until he eventually makes a deal with the police and makes a deal with himself. The film follows the man through the dark side of the law and its relationship with what he does and how he does it. I also felt that the characters didn't have the depth they needed to do something that is an important part of the story, like being told of the serial killer. I think the movie could have been a little more interesting if they made a different story, if the main character was not the detective, if they made the killer the main character and then the detective's wife could have been the main character, the movie would have made a better movie. Also I was a little surprised to see a woman play the role of the detective's wife, it seemed a little bit out of place. I also feel that there could have been some different way the detectives could have changed the rules, it felt like they were a bit more controlling than they could have been. All in all a good movie, that I wouldn't mind seeing again.

As a film, "Carreau" can be seen as either a good, really excellent one, or as a very good, mediocre one. For me, the good is so strong that it's almost in a realm of "so bad it's good". That is the key word in my opinion: it's so bad it's good. And that's exactly what the film is. It's a masterpiece. In my opinion, it's a masterpiece that must be seen in the cinema, it's a masterpiece that you can watch at home, it's a masterpiece that you can enjoy in the cinema, it's a masterpiece that is something that you don't need to see again, but you will always remember.

I can't remember a movie quite like "Sixth Sense". I think I can safely say that this movie is probably my favorite of the genre. It has the best "twist" of any of the supernatural thrillers I've seen, and the twists that come are so creative and off the wall that I can't help but laugh at how the movie ends. "Sixth Sense" is a very underrated movie that should have been much better known and appreciated. It has a lot of great elements that I believe will keep you entertained throughout the whole film. The film is set in the 1980's and tells the story of four friends who find out that their father has died unexpectedly. The friends decide to investigate the death, only to discover that they've become some sort of psychic, and it's up to them to try and figure out what their father is up to. The cast is really good, and all of the main characters do a great job. Bruce Willis and Tom Cruise are great, and I can't say enough about Michael Clarke Duncan's performance as the mother. "Sixth Sense" is a very well made movie that should be seen by many people. It's a great movie that should be appreciated and watched by many people.

I think there is a lot of good points about this movie. I would have liked to see it a little bit longer but the plot does go through a few twists that at the time of the movie I didn't see coming. I think this movie has a lot of potential as a TV movie or even a mini series because of the many twists and turns that are taken. The acting is good from the actors, the direction and writing are solid. There are also several aspects that I think the writers and directors could have done a better job at. I think one thing that really gets to me is that we never see the whole story of the police or the investigation. I am not saying that this is a bad thing. I am just saying that I really wanted to see how the police ended up at the end. We never see the murder, the investigation or the actual witnesses. All of this takes place in the last 10 minutes of the movie. I was very disappointed that we never got the whole story, instead we get a handful of twists and turns and not enough time to really care about the police. This could have been an outstanding TV movie or a mini series. I would give this movie a 7 out of 10 because of the good points I have just mentioned.

I am a huge fan of both Connery and Chow as the MI6 man and the carabinier respectively and the action scenes were highly enjoyable. And while it was clearly the two leads who brought the action and the world of the movie to life, the rest of the cast did a great job as well. Good casting in the sense that we have a lead, whose exceptional skill in the field of spycraft is not appreciated by his peers and who turns to a female to be his right hand woman, but when he needs her help, she turns out to be an excellent assassin with her own agenda, to protect him, as well as his friends, from the machinations of a deadly assassin that wants to kill them all, even though her relationship with the hero is strained. It is up to the rest of the supporting cast to balance the plot, give the hero and the heroine each their moments to shine and ultimately, there is a lot of drama and action to make it all work out. To give a little more back story, I was looking forward to seeing this movie after reading so many reviews and seeing that the movie would take place in the past and would have to do with the agent of MI6. But I was also looking forward to the action scenes because it would give the movie the climax it needed to be entertaining and a great movie in the end. Unfortunately, I am happy to say that the action scenes did not deliver, but the drama and action scenes did. It would be nice to see the action scenes taken into account more so than the drama and the action scenes. It is just not a case of trying to please everybody, especially when that action is so much better than that of the drama and the action scenes were even more amazing. And it was not only the action scenes that did not deliver. The movie itself was kind of a letdown in the end. The ending was just not strong enough to hold the viewer's attention for the entire film. It did not give the audience enough closure to leave the movie with a sense of closure. I am not saying the ending was bad, I am saying it could have been stronger and the ending was not that strong. So, my overall verdict is that this is a movie that I will be glad to see again but I am very disappointed with the end. I did not see any need to go see this movie, which is very sad considering the fact that it was a very good movie. But I still would recommend it to people who are looking for a good action/drama movie.

As this is the third consecutive movie in which Cate Blanchett has been in a major leading role, it is no surprise that she puts in another fine performance. Here she is, again, being pushed to her limits and can do little to hide it. This time she is an executive at a small French newspaper which gets a late start on breaking into the world of newsprint as it is being published. It is the same kind of story that has been told before, but it is a good story, and it is exciting to see Blanchett take on the role. The rest of the cast is also good. In the role of Pichon, Rufus Sewell has some of the best lines in the movie. I will not ruin the ending for you, but you will have to see it to understand it. Overall, it is a good movie, but you must see it once. If you have not seen it, do not expect too much.

In 1990, French police officer Aurie Dahan (Marion Cotillard) is assigned to investigate a series of murders that have been occurring in a particular neighborhood in Paris. She becomes obsessed with the case and not only does she start tracking down the killers, but she also begins to lose her faith in the system and eventually even her faith in humanity herself. I recently watched "Diary of a Mad Housewife" on video and while it isn't an Oscar-caliber film, it is still an excellent film. The film begins with a flashback to the beginning of the murder spree, showing us Aurie and her husband leaving France on the day of the crime. At this point we learn that Aurie had a baby out of wedlock and the two were unhappy, so they decided to adopt. They named their new daughter Aurie, which has become a common trend in France in the past few years. Then we see Aurie in the apartment in which she resides at the start of the film. She's missing the most basic and fundamental element of a human being: a mother. She's cold and distant, never really understanding the feelings of her baby daughter. But, eventually, Aurie finds her missing child in a trash bag, and begins to help her reunite with her father. After Aurie has done this, Aurie goes to the police and they arrest her husband, who has been absent from the home since Aurie was killed. They also find a bag that contains the body of the missing child. Aurie is shocked to discover that her husband had just been shot dead by the police. And, after Aurie has shown her these pictures of her husband's body, Aurie goes to a doctor who is supposed to help her. The doctor has given her a drug that she can't take, and when Aurie goes to see her, she finds that Aurie has died. But, Aurie's death is not an accident; Aurie had accidentally shot her husband with the gun she had been given when they were supposed to have taken a drug. She had been expecting her baby, and now she is dead. Now, Aurie is sent to a hospital, where she meets Dr. Eddy (James Frecheville), who also gets the drug from a woman who has overdosed on it. Aurie feels that the doctor's drugs are for people like her, and her husband's death is meant to teach her a lesson. Aurie wants to blame the police, but the doctor says that Aurie's suspicions are unwarranted. Aurie is now suspected of killing her husband because of her discovery that he had been shot. Aurie's new obsession is getting revenge on Aurie's husband's killers. The film is extremely violent and extremely violent, but it is also extremely good. The film's pacing is slow, but Aurie's emotions are so strong that the viewer really begins to care for her. The film also has a very original and original ending, and this is something that is incredibly hard to do. It is also very hard to film in English, and that's probably why this film has a very low budget. "Diary of a Mad Housewife" is a movie that should be seen by every woman in France. It is not a great film, but it is an amazing film. I highly recommend it. It is an amazing film and the acting is phenomenal. The characters are interesting, and the plot is fascinating. You really do care about the characters. I would give this film a 10 out of 10, and I hope that it gets an Oscar nomination.

The french movie De nouveau poule (another name for French Crime) has one of the best scenes in all movies: an abduction of a child and a prison break. It's a very scary movie, with the actors excellent, the dialogues are very natural and convincing. I strongly recommend to watch this movie if you haven't seen it yet. I like it very much.
