Dubbed by the media as public enemy number one, Louis-Régis Savoie is serving 25 to life in prison. His young son Matthew comes to visit him for the first time in 5 years just in time to see his father shoot a police officer and escape. On the run, Régis has more of a devil-may-care attitude than ever before despite being the subject of a massive police manhunt. During his escapades he meets 8 different people and plans his escape from the country. Three days later he is shot dead by the police following a tip from someone who ratted on him. Each of the eight people give a different interpretation of the events and Savoie's personality seems to change according to whether he's being described by crime-scene professionals (an investigator, a journalist, a lawyer), family members (his son and his mother) or close friends (his wife, his right-hand man and the girlfriend of his right-hand man). Each of them imply the other is the rat. Written by pr1mal_1

A clever story structure, just like RASHOMON!
3 February 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A Rashomon style of film dealing with a convicted murderer on the run after escaping from prison. It takes a while to settle into the clever story structure that hits home with a strong and subtle ending. Powerful performance from Gildor Roy gives it that extra bite.
