Audience Reviews for L'enfant secret

  • Feb 02, 2013
    -LA SÉCTION CESARIENNE: Gentle, abandoned, faithful, seeking for the correct man that fills her void properly. -LE DERNIER GUERRIER: Battling against his own demons, a struggle with highs and lows, mental and physical casualties as distractions from his true self and from his opportunity to balance human relationships. -LE CERCLE ORPHYDIQUE: Cast out from their heavenly love, the couple reunite on a hellish earth, both now tormented by the same demon, in their attempt to balance things unsuccessfully. -LES FORÊTS DÉSENCHANTÉES: A fictional escapism starts to be created, but it isn't real; there is no fantasy. There are two options now: redemption or death (at least emotional). The importance of the acts is about being there, and not about how we got there except for the purpose of reflection. Rarely are we shown the transitions between one sequence and the next. 99/100
