The Fool is a movie about a simple plumber. He is an honest man that is up against an entire system of corrupt bureaucrats. The lives of 800 inhabitants of an old dormitory that is at risk of collapsing during the night are at stake.
I've watched this movie in the night program of a German TV channel and have never heard of it before so I didn't have any expectations. It was no bad movie but also not really a good one.Pretty much everything is solidly done.Acting, plot, suspense etcetera is fine but there's nothing in that movie which makes it special in any way.Too many things could already be seen other movies and often even better done like the visit in an American prison to see a serial killer which seemed almost like a must have in every mediocre thriller since Silence of the Lambs. So eventually it's some kind of French version of The Bone Collector in my opinion.Not really good but it does at least not get boring while you see it so you don't waste your time with seeing it but you won't have the urge to see it once again either.
