Léon is ten years old, has lots of problems and an overly fertile imagination. Of course, there is mom and dad who are always fighting, and those annoying neighbors who get to spend the summer at the beach. And then, there's Léa, the exasperating girl who's always right about everything. In the summer of '68, when mom decides to leave everything behind to start a new life in Greece, Léon is prepared to do anything to kill the pain. Destroy the neighbors' house, become a professional liar and even, why not, fall in love with Léa. Together, they will overcome the pain of growing up when you feel abandoned.
Writer:Philippe Falardeau (dialogue), Philippe Falardeau (screenplay), Bruno Hébert (book)

I'm constantly looking for good horror films to watch and in my quest I've seen countless bad movies, so it's always refreshing when I make a good discovery. It's certainly not a perfect movie but it served its purpose in scaring the crap out of me. There was a similar, found footage Bigfoot movie that came out about the same time that got a really high RT rating which I don't understand because it bored the hell out of me. If you want to actually get scared, turn off the lights and watch Exists.

Roxanne D (kr) wrote: Like Andres Wood's Machuca, This Is England tells the coming of age of a young fatherless boy whose purposeless loneliness leads him into a world unknown to him, which functions as the catalyst for his maturation. On the other hand, both films reveal the respective national and political realities of their age that don't function as backdrops to a coming of age story, but as troubling and serious exposes.

Keegan K (it) wrote: What a fun movie! For someone who loves music, this movie has a ton of fun throwback songs. The plot can be fairly predictable but the cast is fun, the music is great, the dancing is cool, and it's fun to see the nightlife at a bar. Definitely a feel-good movie, with plenty of laughs and inspiration to not give up on your dreams. Reminds me of rock of ages.

Ellie L (ru) wrote: When this came out in theaters I was more than happy to give it a go. I was sorely mistaken. The acting wasn't horrible nor the "mind-blowing special effects" but the whole plot is what really got me. The whole story felt fake and forced. This movie lacked excitement and frankly, I just wanted to get up and leave the movie about half way through. Sparkles, lights, and annoying car horns is all you will get out of this movie and maybe a little mediocre acting too. Definitely not worth my 9 dollars and the hour-and-a-half of my life.
