Slow at first, but an entertaining and rewarding experience.
9 May 2005 | by (Bloomsburg PA) – See all my reviews

I just bought the DVD of "No Rest for the Brave", and I got to say it's quite unique. Director Alain Guiraudie likes to create surrealism with every day settings and situations and slightly distort them. His focus on colors grabs the viewers attention. The film starts off kind of slow, because their is a lot of dialog. The main character is afraid to go to sleep, because he is convinced he will never wake up and is afraid he will die. Then strange things start to happen, a whole village is killed and he could be responsible, but are the events happening a dream? He's sexually obsessed with an older man, has discussions on life with a folk singer farmer and many other odd characters. Then it gets to a point where the viewer can't tell what's happening in the the main character's life or in his dreams. It seems nothing much exciting is happening in his life, so his adventures take place mostly in his dreams. So the film is kind of like a french existential Donnie Darko as filmed by Godard. It's definitely a film you have to think about. I personally enjoyed it.
