Odd but interesting - some SPOILING
2 December 2003 | by (March (or Die), ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

This is strange film. I was drawn to it because I usually like anything with Jean-Hugues Anglade in it. With the added bonus of Joaquim de Almeida, it had to be worth a look.

There is little attempt made to give the viewer any background or put us at a place in time. We know nothing about the main characters, don't know where they are, we just know they have stolen a large quantity of gold (we don't see the robbery) and we don't know that for about 20 minutes. Basically they are just tearing across a desert in a huge tank transporter and being attacked.

The rest of the film covers their journey to the coast to meet a ship. Inevitably they all fall out. I won't give any more away.

I really enjoyed. The performances are undisciplined, almost manic at times. The photography is pretty spectacular and very real (loads of in-cab stuff on the vehicles). It's also pretty violent.

If you get the chance, watch it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
