Since it is considered one of the greatest classics of the French cinema, of course, I was really eager to check it out and eventually, I wasn’t disappointed, that’s for sure.

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

" 26.12. (Teatteri/DCP) Voisitko rakastua miimikkoon? Miimikko revittää peräaukkoaan. Kolmituntisen filmin lopussa miimikon lapsen äiti rukoilee miimikkoa jäämään tämän luokse. Miimikko juoksee kuitenkin toisen muijan perään, mutta pettävät jäät ajelehtivat tämän ulottuvilta ihmismassain pimentoon. Miimikko jää yksin kadulle tuijottamaan vankkureita ja vekkuleita. Tarvitsen lomaa."
