What are people saying?

  • Quentin's rating of the film The Serpent's Kiss

    Very playful film that seems inspired by Peter Greenaway. The garden as a metaphor of human relationships and the temptation to put them under control is quite fascinating. As a side note, it's a pity that Carmen Chaplin has disappeared as an actress, and I miss Philippe Rousselot as a director. As far as I know since the Serpent's Kiss he has only worked as cinematographer :-(
