what I saw in childhood
26 September 2002 | by mickaellorgereSee all my reviews

It's films I saw when I was young in french language. I appreciated the song and bought the films in video. I know there were later new films in 1996 but I didn't like more than the 1978 films. It's a part of my childhood
