Buddy Boy (1999) 7.8/10|
It stars Emmanuelle Seigner, what else can I say. She along with Aidan Gillen reakky make this, what appears to be, low budget affair worth watching.

It sounds like serious stuff, but it isnít. Itís a mix of dark humour with a hint of surrealism. I wasnít too sure what to make of the invalid mother, as she plays the part like a cartoon character, which didnít impress so much.
The film took some tracking down for the right price, as Ebay people ask so much. I got it for £4 from a US seller. The Dvd turned out to be NTSC which my Blu-ray player rejected. Lucky for me, my play all region Dvd player still works a treat after 10 years plus.
I like Emmanuelle Seigner, although she hasnít been in enough films that appear to warrant watching. Frantic, Bitter Moon, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly are all good films, and now Buddy Boy.
La Vie en Rose looks like it might be worth seeing.
