      Audience Member At first I was confused because it's totally not like any Alain Corneau movie before it. All studio sets, a wildly garish color scheme, and full on surrealism are sorta out of the norm for him. Then something clicked and I realized he decided to go for a two-fer and remake to Melville movies at the same time. Remake Le Deuxime Souffle in the style of Un Flic. Kinda genius. Kinda not for first timers either. I liked it though. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member didn't know its original but enjoyed this very much, classical music, wardrobe, and full of manly spirit. M Bellucci looked great. too yellowish though... prefer more blue in colour. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I like colors and visual solvations - thanks to director of photography. What i really don't like - blood floods freely... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member les + : - la photo, magnfique - le scenario, béton - le casting, impressionnant les - : - les jeu des acteurs et leurs dialogues, vraiment pas réalistes (quel dommage pour une telle brochette ! Seul Canto s'en sort très bien) - la longueur du film, on se serait bien passé de certains passages inutiles - l'action se déroule à Paris et à Marseille, mais trop peu d'images d'extérieur (j'ai bien apprécié l'Estaque et Callelongue :) ) Dans l'ensemble, un film noir à voir. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member I like colors and visual solvations - thanks to director of photography. What i really don't like - blood floods freely... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Dans un bon film noir, la seule couleur est celle du sang. Et les murs du "deuxieme souffle" en sont recouverts. Un tres bon casting, une photographie travaillee et un scenarii qui n'a rien a envier a ses pairs. A voir. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
