More than your average crime movie
23 September 2019 | by smitluydertSee all my reviews

I watched this movie and was impressed by a solid story line (it is not your average crime movie), the good actors and the attention for detail. As another reviewer wrote, you should really see especially if you want an impression of what a good French movie consists of.
