Reviews

“Even though The Last Romantic Lover is not an autobiographical film, it is a very personal film that reveals a lot about Just Jaeckin. I found it irresistibly charming and thought that it had very interesting Fellini-esque qualities. Cult Epics’ release is sourced from a very beautiful new 4K master that was supervised and approved by cinematographer Robert Fraisse.” HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. – Blu-ray.com

“This is among the best discoveries in international cinema we have found this year. Cult Epics has delivered a Blu-Ray that knocks it out of the park with the A/V presentation and an impressive array of special features. If you are a fan of French cinema or romantic features, this film is definitely worth your time.” Highly Recommended – Geeks Vibes Nation
