Sons of Anarchy

I have never commented a Jean Pierre Mocky film yet. This one is a perfect example of this very weird and offbeat screenwriter-actor-director style. Even a blind man could recognize a Mocky's picture only listening to it: scenery, situations, dialogues, characters, actors' performances, everything in it is Mocky at 100%. Mix-up of comic sequences, tragic ones, delirious scenes and above all, a solid critic of the whole politic system. Between idealism and anarchy, this forever rebel of the french movie industry, who finances himself his movies and often doesn't pay his actors, gives once more in this film his matchless touch. A former revolutionary back from Indonesia seeks revenge after the death of one of his friends; he has to fight against sort of neo facists groups with the help of some young idealist folks.

And there is no happy end here, as it was in some of his most known movies, such as L'ALBATROS, UN LINCEUL N'A PAS DE POCHE and some others.

Only for Mocky lovers. For those who have not heard about him, they may try. Who knows?...
