    Hi,

    What does it mean if a controversial film (at a film festival) was "reçu par un mouvement de houle"? Did it "receive a stormy reception"?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Funny Games, reçu par un mouvement de houle au dernier festival de Cannes, vilipendé par les uns et adulé par les autres.

    There are no verbs in the original sentence.

    Maybe "received a mixed reception"?

    Thanks,

    Yes, that's it, the film was like tossed about, between love and hate. So to say that, they say the film was like on a swell.
