A very good movie

In fact, I  watched this movie just a few days before Christmas. It wasn't on purpose at all but I thought the coincidence was pretty neat. Anyway, basically, it turned out to be one of those French dramas dealing with a dysfunctional familly. Indeed, it was really talkative, unfocused and rather chaotic (it took me almost 30 minutes to figure out who was who) but I really enjoyed it. In the cont... read more

" TITLE OF WRITTEN WORK: La Greffe PUBLISHED FORMAT: novel AUTHOR/CREATOR: Jacques Asher and Jean-Pierre Jouet ORIGINAL PUBLICATION YEAR: circa 2004 HAVE I READ: No NOTES: Hahaha! I tried to trace the publication of the written basis of this film and everything I got was in French. Understandable since the authors are French, as is the film. "
