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.

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.
