Could have been a good movie
12 October 2005 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

A french gangsters movie. It has all the needed elements for a good gangster movie: sharp characters (Daniel Duval and Gerald Laroche fit perfectly the character's part they have to play), a romance, a young gangster, enemies etc...

The main lack of this movie is the rhythm: we do not have any. As a consequence (or a revealer), the soundtrack is not interesting. The complete cut should be remade, shortened.

Tough guys are there, but that's all. A good try, but a complete failure. That's a pity. I hope may be, Durringer will learn and make a good gangster movie with a french touch.

Watch Olivier Marshal's movies if you want to see a real french and recent gangster movie.
