Even though I don't live in France for already almost a decade (time goes by so fast!), I still like to watch a French movie from time to time. Before watching this one, I honestly never heard of it but since the ratings were pretty good, I thought I should give it a try. When I heard about the storyline, I thought it would be some kind of sport thriller like 'Rocky' but it was actually a heavy so... read more
