Enrico Lo Verso,
A sophisticated exposition of evil which shows how Manichean the world really is. 3 pickpockets show us how that work is done -- and their skill is entertaining and informative. you'll learn how to protect yourself on the Metro in Paris, Rome and NY, for sure, for sure. but they get totally out of their depth into a world of violence, sex slavery and diamond-smuggling -- which is casually wrapped around daily life in Paris. and an ending that is just the start of something else. there's a scene where the "angolanos" are speaking Portuguese and there are no sub-titles but it was small talk before getting down to business anyway. i'm exceptionally unschooled in "Film" but I did notice how gorgeous the camera-work is. there's one moment when the "heroine" is wrapped in a gauze curtain with a gray wall behind her that is typical of the care taken with scenes and color. I can see how a minority would love this movie but we're a lucky few.
