The Mermaid with a sting in her tail - Mississippi Mermaid review by PT

Spoiler Alert
01/05/2009

If you dig movies about obssesive love, this is a must see film. Deneuve is never better as the ultimate femme fatale, while Belmondo is the hopeless love addict. Smoking damages your health, and thus, it is so apt that the tobbaconist Belmondo puts Catherine Deneuve's character on a cigarette packet. Art house fans should love this movie.
