“Both films were very good but I prefer the first one (Puzzle) because even if it is a simple story, I find that there is more suspense than in the second film (Friday’s Child) as we can guess who the killer is and the reasons for his act. I also found that some scenes were not consistent with the movie’’, Sarah
‘’I love the first movie (Puzzle), it was very interesting and emotional’’, Antoine
‘’I preferred the movie"Puzzle" because for me the story had a meaning whereas in the other one we got lost in the story and I did not like this, Thaïs
