(Yawn) That was the most boringest film I've watched. You should also use your fade-ins and fade-outs more, too jumpy from scene to scene.

Aaah... very very nice!
It reminds me of some of the italian pseudo horror/ thriller flicks. This character is really great, seems very layered. You don't see too much of that around here. Excellent job!

1973 was a great year for film and at the top of the list is the classic romance, "Le Cornucopia et Odium" directed by the great auteur Magali Descours. Set in Paris it is a dark tale of obsession and desire. In the lead role Joseph Christ is both mesmerizing and chilling and is sure to be up for best actors honors come awards time.
The cinematography is top notch and adding to the atmosphere of the underbelly of the Parisian night is a wonderful score.
"Le Cornucopia et Odium" is highly recommended as one of the best films in the history of The Movies. (Josephchrist, what a wonderful little film, I can�??t wait to see the sequel.)

A powerfully sad film. Perfect background music for a movie of this type. A must see in this genre for sure. Close to five stars!

Great job. Sad, creepy and oddly touching. Just about perfect. I had to download it.

A Review from the Desk of the ESDirector
This was a powerfully dark movie, and I really did enjoy it. It didn't have any corny action sequences or bad editing. Just a well-made artistic movie. Nice job! Not quite 5 Star material, but excellent nonetheless. I'm looking forward to more movies from this director.

For an overall excellent movie with only a few weaknesses, I give a rating of 4 Stars.

Deep, dark, and disturbing. I agree with Dark_Mace that the mime doesn't feel quite right, although it does add an extra layer of curiosity which isn't entirely out of place. Definitely unique among the movies which are up so far.

The quality of your films is increasing at a breakneck pace. You really did a great job with the twisted protagonist. A little bit more of interaction with other characters would have helped the plot a lot, though.

Excellent.
The best peice i have seen on the site so far. The most original.
I really like the setting, love the music. The fact that it was not voiced over made it all the darker i felt.

The mood was perfect, although i dont agree with the mime (he isnt really dark enough for this genre i felt) you used him to great avail.

My gripe is with some little bits that could of been better edited...the most prominenet perhaps was the begining where he is lying in bed. Although they are minor, its my main reason for a 4 rather then 5.

A little bit inconsistent with story also..seems he is genuinly depressed intially but then goes onto a relegious inspired killing spree, which althogh is great, does not coincide in my opinion, with the begining.

I was getting ready for a depressed man pissed of at the filthy word. However the twist of relegion i guess adds some flavour.

All in all, very impressed, and done in relativley short ammount of time.
Great work, best movie on here at the moment, no doubt.

Great job! I was moved by this film.

I think it could have been even better if it was in black and white, and with a soulful voice over, in true film noir fashion.

Actual character development? A reason for killing at random? Wonders never cease!
