Un conde is a very depressing film about a cop who gets tired of crime after a tragic gunfight. The cop starts his personal vendetta that goes far beyond the law.
The films imagery is laconic and slow. Many off the scenes are shot with very little light.Acting is very motionless and slow to make the film look sad and depressing. There is no beautiful or happy scenes. Every character in this film have serious problems. I don't know that to whom this kind of films are made for. Only pleasurable thing is that dialogue is in french. The film offers nothing but depressing scenes of violence and mourning. Still it could be worth seeing for if one likes to feel gloomy.
