The constant woodcutter
4 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Thomas Vincent seems here André Cayatte's psychic son: a director who takes the law in his own hands;we do need someone like André Cayatte,this director the Nouvelle Vague was always putting down.

The subject is absorbing and the movie is up to scratch in its first half:the scene in the hospital where the dead son's mobile's keeps on ringing (spooky ,huh?);the press conference;and to top it all ,the sequence in the café where a scientist explains to a bewildered Cornillac how we are all potential sick persons and that there's a lot of money to be made ;developing countries ,we could help them ,but they are not interesting commercially speaking: rich countries are the gold mine.Molière was a visionary when he wrote his "Malade Imaginaire" in 1693!Too bad the character disappears after such terrifying lines.

The second part is less interesting ,consisting of chases,abduction attempts ,violence ,in short,your average thriller.The human side,present in the first half ,has almost disappeared and I find Cornillac's playing rather wooden -maybe when he is dubbed ,it's less embarrassing- Jean Reno's style.His female partner 's is not very subtle either and is not sparing of gestures and words (she's almost always shouting).

What is definitely lacking is details about the young victim;we know almost nothing about this unfortunate young lad and the final "unexpected" revelation does not make much sense out of context.
