"Let's face it, Juan Bunuel is not the master that his dad is. The plot of this most dangerous game variation lurches rather than flows, and the various reality defying tricks added along the way seem abrupt, giving the impression of gimmick rather than a sense of the supernatural. And not to be a spoilsport for all my fellow letches out there, but when you slow down the DVD frame by frame, you discover that Catherine Deneuve is not quite naked in that brief, early shot, but is wearing a semi-sheer body suit. Personally, I can't wait for the Hunger's release."
CULT ITEM FOR CATHERINE'S FANS

"This 1974 release was a box office failure.CATHERINE's die hard fans will remember that at that time she was the CHANEL no 5 woman on television commercials.This supernatural story directed by JUAN BUNUEL is interesting in parts,but not satisfying as a whole.Such supernatural films were rare in FRENCH cinema at that time.However, those who admire CATHERINE DENEUVE's stunning figure(a lot of us guys belong in this group)will be in heaven watching this.CATHERINE's legendary blonde hair is much on display throughout,and there's a famous unexpected nude scene.Girls ,if your boyfriend or husband's fantasy is DENEUVE in her prime,buy him this and let him enjoy while you do the shopping with his money.He'll forget about the change."
