Le magasin des suicides (2012)

leMagasinDesSuicides“Le magasin des suicides” has an excellent idea / script: in a gloomy world where depression (financial and humane) is everywhere, the birth of a happy child brings everything upside down. Qualities of the film:

  • The animation is very good
  • The characters are well portrayed
  • The ideas behind the plot are worth presenting

…but Patrice Leconte is like a cook with all the right ingredients of a recipe which turns out mediocre. It is hard to point out where things went wrong but the result is far from the enthusiasm generated at the initial idea.

My rating: 05/10

Casus Belli (2010)

Casus Belli is a short 11 minutes Greek film by Giorgos Zois. No subtitles needed. It does say though a lot in this time frame. You may find it online.

My rating: 10/10
