Sympathy for the aggressor/wrong doer.
15 June 2007 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

Some of the dedicated viewers have remarked that French films set in North France tend to be full of misery, hopelessness, sorrow etc. On a close observation it might appear to be true. For example-ça commence aujourd'hui by Bertrand Tavernier.But overall this might turn out to be a debatable topic.However, in Philippe Le Guay's "Trois Huit" aka "Night Shift" there are certain acute observations on human behavior. First of all it can be noted that all along the victim of the film has been encouraging his aggressor. This is shown by his proximity with the aggressor. In a way as he had a liking for his aggressor, he was bearing all ill treatment with the hope that by dint of some miracle his aggressor would leave him alone. Another reason which supports this supposition is the fact that why was the victim enduring all the misery heaped on him ? Why did he not report it to the concerned authorities ? The weak point of the film is the uneven emotional bonding of the victim with his wife and his young kid. In normal circumstance people talk to their family members for solution to a problem. However the victim did not bother to take that step. Watch this film for the brutal performance of Marc Barbe as the bully.
