Ni Pour, Ni Contre is a very good film noir, witch combines agreeably well, humour, suspense and drama. The Klapisch Touch is there, but it's also in a kind completely different for what we knew him before, like Chacun Cherche son Chat, or L'Auberge Espagnole. For example, the last scene of break-in is so intense, that I was really afraid for the characters. Some movies do not leave you any impressions, but with Klapisch, the emotions and the feelings seizes the spectator.
Side of the distribution, the actors are great, especially Vincent Elbaz, who is great and credible, Zinedine Soualem, who try to stay in the right side, and Marie Gillain at the same time strong and fragile who can be seen in a quasi similar role in L'Appat directed by Bertrand Tavernier.
A really good Polar, a must see movie...
