Two actors in search of a director.
6 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

"Rue Barbare" is all form and no content.On the plus side,it featured two of the best actors of the FRench cinema:Bernard Giraudeau,whose talent is so huge he can play anything from Scola to Ozon and Bernard -Pierre Donnadieu whose resemblance to Gerard Depardieu went against him (he was notable in "L'Homme Qui Voulait Savoir" -remade by the same director in the US with a sweetened screenplay-).

But the screenplay is some kind of French "Mad Max" ,with two losers fighting ,among other things ,for an Asian babe.The cinematography is dazzling with a good use of the color creating a murky atmosphere .Only substance (that is to say a real screenplay) is lacking.Subsequent works by Behat ("Urgence" the awful "dancing machine" ) were even less convincing.
