forget it and read the novel
10 May 2003 | by tontonsigmundSee all my reviews

"Aurelien" is a great novel, but I really wonder if the staff who worked on this movie read it before shooting. The actors seem to be completely lost in an ocean of absurd scenes, directed without any kind of inspiration. Just forget it and wait until a better adaptation, which Aragon deserve.
