Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 5, 2005 Full Review Brandon Judell PopcornQ maybe things aren't so different from the days of Zola except for the costumes and the dance beat. Mar 31, 2002 Full Review Kevin Lally Film Journal International Feels more like a sketch for a movie than a completely formed narrative, with characters and situations that are too thin to bear the weight of the tale's ultimate tragic turns.

Audience Member Messy. But finelooking people. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Very similar to Gael Morel's debut project (as an actor) [Wild Reeds], [Full Speed] also addressed the common issues like young people's life taking-off, tangling boys-girl relationships; as well as more extensive coverage of France-Algeria conflict, social hierarchy, poverty & races problems. The film, however, just turned out to be kinda uninteresting & colorless, lacking off certain stunning witchcraft overall. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member BORING... although that doesn't necessarily mean that it was bad. I just didn't find it appealing at all. There were times when I felt like an important scene that would set up what happened next was somehow left in the editing room. True, the characters are handsome and the acting is not bad, but the story has been done many times and this movie did not offer any original new angle. I don't recommend it, you can find something better to watch Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member foreign film ,gay interest, hard for me to follow but i liked it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member i cant c this novie. but pipel tells its nice movie Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful story of one who says they love and holds a friend true, but does not. One who says they cannot love but is devoted and does love. One who loves too quickly and will kill for a friend. All the male leads are beautiful in their own right. I really enjoyed this movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
