Ferocious. Or courageous.
26 December 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Courageous is this movie, by drawing a good/bad easy straight line. If at first, the storyline seems easy, the scenario gets into various twists and turn, dealing all the way with the moral issues without ever being moralistic. The ending is not a let down : while not resorting to turning into the enemy, sami Naceri's character finds a way to bring it down. By refusing to give its hero a "licence to kill" in the name of "Good" and using a subtler approach, Gilles de Maistre's movie gives us a mirror in which we can see the small part of The Beast that lies in each one of us. The final sentence - "Fascism is the socialism of hate" - draws the line : if nobody voted for thos bastards, they plainly would not exist. An unsettling constatation that will echoe in any thinking man's head. Not a perfect movie by a long stretch, but one that is not afraid to hit where it hurts, no matter where you live, and different from the usual brainwashed stuff we are used to. Courageous, as I first said.
