2/4 90% Le fils de l'épicier (The Grocer's Son) (2008) For all of its sleepy charms and pretty shots of the countryside, the film doesn't serve up a lot of fresh insights, unless you count finding out what senior citizens buy from grocery vans in these little hamlets. - Chicago Tribune EDIT

28% Gossip (1999) The pseudo-philosophical questions posed here are merely excuses to get a bunch of attractive young people to engage in sex, violence and the mass consumption of alcohol. - Chicago Tribune EDIT

73% My Dog Skip (2000) Proves even the tiredest genre can be reinvigorated in the right hands. - Chicago Tribune EDIT
