Storyline

Simon is a sales representative about fifty. When Mickey, his cop friend, is being shot, he leaves everything to find the murderers. Two years before, Marx, an old gambler, met Frederic, a young man that does not look very smart and started to follow him everywhere (as a puppy) and changed his name to Johnny to please Marx. Of course, Simon's story is related with Marx and Johnny's one. But the thriller is only a pretext for a psychological description of the three main characters. Written by Yepok

The harder they fall
7 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

The very structure of the movie was original.Two apparently distinct plots .

One concerns two guys:Jean Yanne and his friend Mickey who has just been very seriously injured (gangland killing?).He is lying brain dead in a gloomy hospital and his friend keeps on talking to him.

The other one concerns two other guys:Trintignant and Kassovitz.The former spends most of his time with women -although the film has gay accents - ,the latter is a half-wit who has never sex and seems to be the pain in the neck for his mate.

This is par excellence the kind of movie the French critics love: a vague ambiguous screenplay,"deep " "meaningful" frames of mind and even pieces of information in the silent movies tradition.This is also par excellence the kind of movie which makes lots of people take to their heels when they hear about French movies.

Assets: All that concerns the first two guys is in the present tense.The adventures of the two others are a long flashback.Jean Yanne gives a strong performance as a jaded desperate man who's lost his last reason to live.On the other hand ,Trintignant overacts and,for the first time in his brilliant career ,is almost unbearable.

More pretentious than really exciting.
