Music Tip: Röyksopp - What Else Is There?
MovieScout independently rates movies. The rating displayed below this text, which by the way runs through our entire website, is the current average rating result of our visitors. This means: please rate the movies! The rating result of our visitors is not always congruent with the classification you can find within "awarded movies" or "movies worth seeing", but offers a good supplement. Dynamic content such as ratings appear with a time lag.
