another one up for european cinema.

Anyway "revanche" still remains a good watch and a movie made with an undeniable talent many should visit if they are ready to withstand some unnecessary graphic sexual scenes. and over popping breast. Its story is great and and the question it raises through apparently immoral situation will probably convince the audience of its quality by its response and please most people watching it,especialy the cinema lovers outhere.The director of "revanche" is definitely one the audience and critics should follow .
