Papillon is not very uplifting
5 second plot: Two guys try to escape from a horrible prison camp on an island in French Guiana. Their efforts are not always successful which makes life in prison even harder.
5 second review: This story will not make you happy. To know that this horrific prison camp actually existed, makes it even worse. Great acting, of course, two icons at work. There are some strange twists in the story but overall it's pretty decent. But it's serious drama without a lot of light at the end of the tunnel. Them French folk sure do speak very good English. Wink.
