French film "Le Prix Du Danger" discusses the extent to which a man can face violence to earn huge sums of money.
4 February 2015 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

When the power of a TV camera is considered to be immense, what would happen if all of a sudden numerous TV cameras are employed to cover an event from all possible angles ? This is the most fundamental question which any viewer might be compelled to ask while watching "Le Prix Du Danger". This Yves Boisset film questions the role of TV especially the notion which accuses TV of legitimizing senseless violence in the name of entertainment. The role of violence and its impact on human lives has also been discussed in this film. A man is the worst enemy of another man in all spheres where money is involved. This assertion seems to be true as a lucky contestant has to beat killers hell bent on killing him. There are huge financial rewards to be obtained if the contestant is able to escape unhurt in a deadly game of life and death. One might say that poverty drives some reckless souls to sacrifice their lives for money. It is also interesting to learn about the reasons which drive ordinary people to become killers. With excellent performances by all leading actors namely Michel Piccoli, Marie France Pisier, Gérard Lanvin and Bruno Cremer, "Le Prix Du Danger" is an important film with concern for existential problems which have always troubled humanity. It is directed by Yves Boisset who has helmed many thrillers in France.
