Henry, a young actor, finds himself involved in a film by cinema superstar, Cédric Rovere. Charmed by his benevolence, feelings hitherto unknown are aroused, while Rovere, intrigued by Henry's dream, lives this shoot as an unexpected gift.
I am afraid that this authentic gem may not stay very long on the screens. Audiences are so silly, so starving about garbage stuff and their superheroes...I prefer stop here my wrath.
This feature is an outstanding crime movie, telling the story of a deserter from the Foreign legion who gets back home to find out about his past. Everything here is awesome: acting, directing, story telling, editing. Everything.
Tcheky Karyo is absolutely terrific here, at his peak, his very best ever. A so poignant film, with sequences that make you nearly weep. An action flick too, with brutal scènes so intense that you can't even imagine.
A movie that Jean-Pierre Melville could have done, but in another may, I agree.
Run for it. A very taut tragedy from France.
