A 'Robert Enrico' film which shows that reality is not what one expects it to be.
18 November 2013 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Robert Enrico's "Pile Ou Face"/'heads or tails' is entirely about men. This is one reason why he chose to give minor roles to his film's different actresses. French actors Philippe Noiret and Michel Serrault are a perfect fit for their roles consisting a strong and a weak man. For actor Michel Serrault, it was the second best role of his career in which he incarnated a hapless victim who appears to be doomed. This is why he does not seek salvation in any form. Pile Ou Face is a different kind of mystery film about a victim and his oppressor and their relationship. Apart from being an intelligent thriller about the brusque death of a neighbor,Pile Ou Face also depicts the tough life of a policeman who has been hiding some dark secrets within himself. Although based on a best selling novel, 'heads or tails' has the capacity to surprise as a murder investigation is merely a pretext for the strong men to unravel the mystery which was lurking for a very long time in their hearts.
