remember Fred Cavayé
9 February 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

When I saw the trailer of Mea Culpa, I was really seduced. Vincent Lindon and Gilles Lellouche together in a thriller with real tough scenes, I jumped on this must see ... and I wasn't disappointed at all.

And the movie begins very hard, and it goes on like this till the end : lot of twists and surprises all along the movie, with physical strength and action packed sequences. And noir destiny, very noir.

Believe it, editing and cinematography serve effectively each scene, and you are always surprised. A constant pleasure. And a very smart ending.

Vincent Lindon and Gilles Lellouche are stunning, I just loved their magnetic friendship. They are the main characters really developed.

There are some relevant references to classic movies masterpieces, which make want to see again Framed directed by Phil Karlson, same kind of fights.

I'm waiting for the next Fred Cavayé.
