Muddled French drama
26 November 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Tension among tycoons comes up on screen, mixed in with the performers commenting their characters' actions, Hamlet and nasty stuff on a nuclear submarine.

This is clearly a film of high seriousness and comes a year before the director's more substantial "Rois & Reine." However just why we are being treated to this mishmash or what we may derive from it remains obscure. The ever watchable Sami Bouajila comes over as amiable rather than complex and the rest project personalities which would be better served by more approachable writing.

With so much French Film never leaving home, I guess we should be grateful for every piece that does reach us but I can't help wondering whether this one is taking up space that could be better used.
