Film Description
Hello all
Here is finally my first on-line French film translates into English
It is about the story of a man who comes of... Die!! But I do not say about it more
Contrary to what is marked it is not really a horror movie but more a drama/romance
There is some defauts as dialogues which pass too quickly in a certain scene or the arrangement of the actors (of in the bug in the window editing)
It's a very special film, do not wait for you in a lot of action, it's a film where speak a lot
Be indulgent for the vocabulary, English is not my first language thank you

So, good movie^^

I've never seen a film like that before! Not in The Movies, anyway. It might not have been a "horror" film, but it did scare the pants off me in the first couple of scenes! The editing, music, sound effects, and dialogue were placed to near perfect as I could see. Awesome job!

Wow! That's almost all I can say. This movie just blew me away....

What an amazing, thoughtful film this is - I won't even comment on the technical excellence, since that's only the skeleton on which this beautiful film rests. It's an original idea, splendedly translated into images and words. The deliberate pacing and flow take the viewer to the end without action or violence (rare in the films here).

This was outstanding work, and truly needs to be seen. Very, very good.

I will be taking the liberty to bookmark this one to my studio.
It certainly makes one reflect upon their own life which is the idea of such movies like this to leave you with an impression :)
I found it a deep movie and the editing was done well as was the music and effects in the right places!
Thankyou for making a moving story.

I found this movie amazing and unlike any other I've seen on this site (well, perhaps "Carpe Diem" is the closest to it). The reason is simple: this movie doesn't feel like a funny, amateurish work that's been created with a simple movie creator program with very limited capatibilities. This movie is pure art. It is serious and thoughtful, with a beatiful message and a very memorable ending. Well, perhaps the first half is a little too long (I think the horror scenes weren't too necessary), but who cares? And - although I don't speak English very well - I think the translation is perfect. If you miss this movie, you'll miss an experience that you likely won't get from any other creation on TMO.

Très intrigant ce film. Une ambiance particulièrement hypnothique et immersive. On se met vraiment dans la peau du personnage principal. La réalisation est très bonne et les dialogues bien écrits (quelques erreurs de langue, en effet, mais c'est supportable). Peu d'ambiance musicale, mais je pense que c'est un choix délibéré qui participe au "vide" de ce purgatoire, et personnellement j'approuve à 100%. Ton "saint Pierre" est très réussi à tous points de vue. Très bon film !

Un film que j'ai vraiment aimé. L'histoire m'a accroché, même si par moment on a pas les réponses à certaines questions, mais ce doit être voulu. Je trouve que le film est touchant, on est vraiment pris par l'ambiance du film, qui bénéficie d'un travail appliqué. Je n'ai pas vu la version fr. alors j'ai du mettre pause 2, 3 fois pour traduire un mot lol, puis j'ai regardé une nouvelle fois, et je ne suis vraiment pas déçu d'avoir pris mon temps pour voir ce film. Tu as réalisé un beau travail. Bravo!

Je ne ferais pas de commentaire de cette acte car une personne aussi conne ne mérite pas tant d'attention.

Beautiful movie, you have a knack at grabbing a person's emotions and changing it to the way you like. As in Last Empire, I am at a loss of words. I truly have nothing else to say. I was crying as I watched it. I decicded that I am bookmarking your stuido and your movies. That's something that I do very rarely. So I hope you appreciate it.

Il y a du bon travail, la musique et les bruitages sont bien placés.
Cependant, les dialogues sont un peu rapides (quelques fois confus).
Bonne continuation.

It was an interesting story, no doubt about it. Not quite my liking but overall I enjoyed it. Subtitles were well placed and your english is also not bad. I could clearly understand everything your characters said. So 4 stars for you!

Thanks for watching my latest. If you like, check out some of my others too. Perhaps you'll like them!

Excellent boulot, Moreau... J'évacue le seul petit point noir à mes yeux : beaucoup de points restent sans réponse dans ton récit, mais ça rajoute en fait eu côté dérangeant de ton film : ça me va! Sinon une excellente idée de départ, une ambiance rare, émouvante par tes choix de bruitages, de musique! Un sans faute en définitive! Chapeau.
a bientot.

What a beautiful movie!
Altough the story seems to be inspired by Michel Gonrdry's "eternal sunshine of the spotless mind" the way you turn it into motion pictures is original.
I think the film definitely deserves to get hot-picked.

The editing is good at all points. The story is marvelous and treats a difficult subjet in a simple and very original manner. A must see for the english and french communities.
I think it's the kind of movie that non players should see. They'll buy the game the day after for sure.
You did a really great job.

A brilliant film. Yet again, it's up to the French to show us truly creative ways to make movies (my other hot pick is "B(R)EASTS").

The heart-beat motif is superbly used. Even the stock music (horror) is used sparsely but absolutely appropriately in this film - it's even made to sound cool, quite an achievement!

And the "guide" character called "Sir" really comes into his own in the final shot - basically saying, "behave yourselves people because everyone takes the elevator to `heaven` or `hell` eventually - all those one-star bandit reviews might just come back to haunt you!!"

Very weird - and touching in places.

Technically - the English subtitles need improving (lots of grammatical mistakes), but that's about it.

"Vive La France!" if we keep getting movies of this quality.

Good one! The story is good, the editing well done. I do not think that you should trim it, it would loose it's slow yet necessary flow. I like slow movies, did one myself, as I like movies where not every detail and every information is given. Movies should have a certain mood and yours has one for sure.
Keep it up!

apparement t'es français comme moi, donc j'vais pas tortiller. c'est clair qu'on peut pas dire que mon film était très oroginal, vu le tien, maintenant tkt c'était que le premier, juste pour voir. En ce qui concerne le tien, donc c'est clair il est original, mé y a franchment beaucoup de sous-titre, qui passe en plus tellement vite qu'on a pas trop le temps de les lire. cependant j'vé suivre le courant et t'accorder les 5 étoiles.

This movie is expertly crafted in every sence. The idea is origional and well thought out to make an excellent story. It is told with out violence, something very rare in the movies on this site. The captions is done with care to provide all the required information to not leave one feeling lost. The editing with respect to music amplifies the tone of the movie. This is one of the best artistic showings I've seen in The Movies.

Posted on January 6, 2006
- SHERWINLIU

Quite amazing... I was bracing and fearing for a more conventional ending to a great idea and story, but your ending is on the spot. Great job! If you trim it a little, more people will watch it.

I always feel terrible when I see so many 5s and I am awarding a 4. The movie was well made. Definately a lobor of love. For me, it just seemed slow a lot. The ending was memorable. The VOs were great. Most likely I jsut don't react as well to this type movie. I apologize for awarding the 4.

i think this movie is excellent because it is all about what happens after life, and is full of great ideas. It's also good because it's got a proper plot and is nearly 8 minutes long, it's hard to get a 100% makes- sense movie on the movies game, so well done!

I wish that I, too, would forget that a black man with blonde hair awaits me in that final hour. That will haunt me to the end of my days, as well as the 2 minute heart beat that nearly blew out my sub-woofer.

Your film held my interest from the opening scene to the closing credits which is a thing that most films on this website can't seem to accomplish. The plot was interesting and the dialogue was well written. I was also amazed by the opening shots. It made me wonder how you managed to do that with The Movies.

By the way, for those of you who are reading this review, here is a link to my film, Late For Work: http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/33565
