This is the kind of dud which passes for thriller !Directing is awful,acting is either ludicrous(Villeret) or totally listless (Jobert and Cremer)
Jacques Villeret is a gangster on the lam ;he has killed all his mates and now he takes hostages.His swagger is priceless:when he's wearing his wig,he resembles Obelix,complete with moustache and paunch,and when he takes off his disguise,he looks like a caricature of the killer-with-frames-of -mind-who -is not-that-much-wicked-after-all.His hostages are people who have style:Cremer is a mathematician and Jobert a doctor:their love story is not unlike the ones we saw in the disaster movies of the seventies,perhaps even more vapid ,if it's possible.
A pox on it.
