Storyline

They're strangers. Adrien, a former high-flying bank robber, recently released from prison and suffering from an incurable form of cancer... Werner, a sniper and ex-legionnaire, presently a mercenary, who has seen it all, from Angola to Sarajevo. He is driven by suicidal madness... ~A contract brings them together in Bucharest: a rigged attack on a Romanian general standing for election, an attack during which they will let themselves be killed. In return, a million dollars in cash each. Enough to ensure Adrien's family's future and to give Werner one last opportunity to face death head on... The journey begins tensely. Everything sets them apart, with only their imminent death in common. Yet, the ice slowly breaks. A friendship without a future is the only friendship possible for these two men.

The Romanian candidates
17 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I do not go much for Alexandre Arcady's stuff but Richard Berry is in it ,so I watched it .The beginning recalls Patricia Highsmith's "Ripley's games" which Wim Wenders transferred to the screen as " Der Amerikanische Freund " : a terminally -ill man who wants to keep the wolf from his family's door and accepts a suicide mission with another guy whose motives are more obscure -and the actor is not in the same league as Berry-.Located in Romania ,it deals with a false assassination to raise a politician's popularity .Both of the "murderers" would be killed in their attempt.But of course nothing happens as expected and the two men are involved in a series of murders .After a promising beginning ,the movie becomes routine action movie with a major implausibility:how can a terminally-ill man such as our hero ,who needs morphine and sometimes can hardly stand , endure such a chase?Moderately entertaining.
