Jean-Pierre is a hit man in Paris. He wants to stop; an incentive is reconnecting to Michelle, a childhood friend. He's ready to commit himself to her, but she has her own secrets: she sells bomb components to thugs. He hears rumors of a missing briefcase, which he finds in Michelle's flat. He asks no questions, and soon both of them are in trouble with Jean-Pierre's ex-employer and with her bomb buyers. Two other characters complicate the maneuvering: Jean-Pierre's best friend, who's always losing money on the ponies, and the ex-employer's new contract killer, a seemingly fragile woman. Is there any way that Jean-Pierre can protect Michelle and escape with his life? Written by
Viewed at the 2004 Toronto FIlm Festival World Premiere, this is a good French film. But I have to clarify that a little, which makes it even more amazing!
This movie is the first feature film of the American director. He is in love with French movies and Film Noire, so he decided to make one.
This movie is filmed in France (Paris and environs) with a French cast, in French (with English subtitles).
It is a complicated, you must pay attention, Crime Drama. The main characters are childhood friends, and now all involved in crimes from hit-men to bomb experts etc. The plot twists and turns, and you slowly learn more and more about what connects the main characters, and what makes them tick.
Very enjoyable, and a very good watch.... Enjoy... Andrew
