Belmondo in anything!

January 21, 2004

Filme loooooongo sobre os últimos dias da ocupaçăo nazista em Paris, é recheado de pontas célebres, mas seu ufanismo acaba tornando-o lento, repetitivo e cansativo.

Audience Reviews for Is Paris Burning? (Paris brűle-t-il?)


Not bad looking. With a superb script by Gore Vidal and Francis Ford Coppula and directed by Rene Clement. Filmed in Panavision(was Oscar nominated for its stunning black and white cimematopgraphy),this film boasts an all star cast which features Charles Boyer,Leslie Caron,Glenn Ford,Henry Fonda,Robert Stack and a execptional performance by Kirk Douglas as General Patton. Be forewarned here since this picture runs over three hours long.
