I remember it very well, when this movie was released, I was still living in France and I was really eager to check it out. Somhow, it took me almost 20 years to watch it but it was definitely worth the wait. Indeed, I thought it was a really solid court drama and it follows my theory that prisons shouldn’t be only about punishing the inmates, instead, we should be more preoccupied by their reha... read more

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (45 movies items)

"4.2, PC Kertojaäänen käyttö, tunteellinen musiikki yhdessä hidastusten kanssa ynnä muut seikat ovat perinteistä 90-luvun Hollywood-tunteilua, mikä vähän häiritsee, muttei toisaalta ylly mitenkään sietämättömäksi missään vaiheessa.
