The list is most amazing for me as I have seen a few of the films and didn’t enjoy them much!!! That’s really extraordinary, as my love for French cinema makes me like almost EVERYTHING! But it had to happen and even if is unbelievable for me, nope didn’t like much some of the above films. BUT still have to watch some that hope will change this trend, especially Des Filles en Noir, White Material, Belle Épine, and Un Poison Violent.
