  • Rosetta

    Rosetta 1999


    Just watched ROSETTA, directed by brothers Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne. This is a movie about a girl that lives in a trailer with her alcoholic mom trying to survive in poverty. Her holy grail in life is having a steady job so that she can have a regular life, which causes her to betray a friend so that she can snag their position.

I'm a collector of rare and hard-to-find movie, and this movie has been my holy grail for some time. I actually had to e-mail the director himself in order to buy a copy. But how does the movie itself rank? Well, it's not for the impatient…
