The surprise...
8 November 2000 | by patrice vatanSee all my reviews

The surprise. Whereas one expects a small documentary " mode " and surely rather narcissistic on the world of the photojournalists, crunched by one as of their, " Reporters " the frightening mirror of a political reality suddenly exposed proves to be. Really demystificator (cf Chirac), corrodent with wish, the film shows the power of the image imparablement, its subversive capacity.
