Audience Reviews for Taffin


A little known secret of a movie...Good plot and a already been done to death concept, but interesting piece none the least. The French subtitles got me at first, but if you ignore those and feed into the story...It is worth the watch. A conflicted ex seminary slash priest drop out turned local boy gone bad debt collector...His love interest was kinda' dreamy and the thugs he went up against were over the top psycopaths, but don't take my word for it. Just watch and decide for yourself...
