User Reviews

Effective and believable, with great noir feeling
5 August 2016 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

A couple of reviewers here are guessing that this film is inspired by the novel "Like a hole in the head" by James Hadley Chase, in that the plot is similar. I haven't read that novel, and the review is based upon the film as itself. I could find no evidence that this film at all based upon that novel, and find it ridiculous to review that film on that basis.

As a drama or thriller this film stands firmly as it is. The up-building of the story is slow, but I don't mind. The film starts off with a guy who is a master shoots-man, but with money troubles and wife troubles, Vincent Cavelle (played by Reda Kateb, who also was featured in the fabulous "A prophet"). He also has a troubled relation to his own father. Then a surprise friend turns up, offering to help.

I found the acting very good and believable, and the film made me think on several levels. How far is it from being a controlled master shooter to become a cold sniper? How easy is it to go into a complete different role, when you see the solving of all your problems?

The film is Fred Grivois' first feature film, and as such it's very good. I also found the music score to be perfect, and the film gives a noir feeling which I also like very much.

The So if you are out for a film which isn't all action, but realistic suspense and also kind of thought provoking, then give this film a chance. Well done!
