Storyline

Simon Belin is an actor touring the provinces with his company. Although talented he has never been given the opportunity to shine on stage. It is always Bérimont, a matinée idol past his best, who gets the lead roles. One day however, Simon is witness to a murder. Subjected to the pressure of justice, of his agent and of his own wish for publicity, he identifies a suspect, Ferrari, without being certain he is the real culprit. Singled out by his action he becomes the toast of the town.Overnight he replaces Bérimont as the star of the play. But Ferrari, who had been sentenced to twenty years in prison, escapes and threatens him ; from now on he has ... three days to live. Written by Guy Bellinger

Stage fright
26 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

According to the Cahiers Du Cinema theory,Gilles Grangier was a mediocre director ,cause he did not "innovate" .These hackneyed ideas do not stand up to hindsight.Cause Grangier did innovate in this movie: 1)He begins his movie with the end of a play ,with all the actors bowing to the audience! 2) The subject is eternal,still relevant today:a stage actor (Daniel Gelin)who generally plays secondary characters was a witness in a gangland killing.For him,opportunity knocks:he becomes a celebrity overnight and is given the great parts he has always been dreaming of.

3)But this nice guy is perhaps not so nice.Might it be perjury? 4)The lines the actor delivers on stage ,he could as well say them in real life ,now that the gangster he sent to jail escaped and told him he would die within three days.

Essentially a psychological thriller,where the gangsters work behind the scenes,"Trois Jours A Vivre" is a nice little flick.
