    The Red Tent

    ★★½

    Typical old adventure film, delivering great pictures of snowed environments and some interesting survival & leadership/responsability moments through the fragmented flashback that makes a good chunk of it.
    Of note, a light fantastic touch that doesn't do much for the film aside from offering a potentially interesting framing.

    Morricone's musics (added for the international release?) evoke some emotional or grand scenes that don't appear on screen.


    Score: 5/10
    Enjoyment: 3/5


    PS: that 60s haircut was a crime against Cardinale. Her useless presence too.


    One more soviet movie watched!

    NOT A REVIEW

    Typical odd couple situation, whose theatre plays origins are fully intact but never damage the adaptation, with Villeret playing the "moron" to the perfection and Lhermitte reacting to it quite well as the straight (but mean) man, only let down by Francis Hustler's laughing kickstarter. But it's Daniel Prévost who gets (or rather makes) the best moment in the whole film, as a tax inspector.
    Most of the time, though, it's mainly a small comedy of dialogues…

    (NOT) A REVIEW, NOT A FILM.

    Well, this was great despite how the film is hardly built like one (the first and third ones are the only good ones on that basis), and is more of a series of "moments".


    Score: 9/10 (nearer to 9/10 on itself)
    Enjoyment: +∞ /5
    Everything Evangelion in a single work (just like the series).



    Notes:
    - great (maybe even better),
    - ugly CGI although the ugliest moment, 13vs01 with a horrible toys city, felt…

    Don't try to understand it. Feel it.

    Nothing more than a Brosnan Bond with M:I level action relying on a nice little idea. But this scifi concept is only an excuse to serve "great" action scenes revolving around it when, as and how it suits the director...
    Unlike some rumours have it, there is no difficulty to understand what is a basic action film. It prevents any real suspense, especially when most suspense elements are highlighted. You can even understand…
