Gitai's Rabin film eyes fest path

  • ScreenDaily
Amos Gitai is hoping to screen Rabin: The Last Day at festivals in autumn.

Ahead of his Monday masterclass here at Jerusalem Film Festival (9-19 July), Israeli film-maker Amos Gitai sat down with Screen to discuss his upcoming Yitzhak Rabin feature, now titled Rabin: The Last Day.

Currently putting the final touches to the film, which he shot in February in Tel Aviv, Gitai is waiting to hear from one of the major autumn festivals about a programming berth.

“We will know by the end of the month,” he said. “We’ve been showing the film without the final mix and the reactions have been very strong. I’m really discovering how much he meant to so many people in many different countries.”

“Israeli society is still feeling the shockwaves of his killing even if it’s already 20 years ago,” he added. “It’s an open wound and looking at the current situation in the Middle East, there

Sleepless Night Remake Reawakens With Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan

Remember when we told you to see Frédéric Jardin’s exhilarating thriller Sleepless Night, but then you were all disappointed to learn that it’s a subtitled movie and said you’d wait for the remake? That was a few years ago, and to your credit there was actually a Hollywood version announced immediately following its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. Well, if you’re growing tired of waiting, you will be glad to hear that the English-language remake is back on track after being dropped by Warner Bros. According to Variety, now the rights are at Open Road, which is happy to announce they’re producing the movie with Jamie Foxx and his Due Date costar Michelle Monaghan in lead roles. Foxx will play the (anti)hero (originally portrayed by Tomer Sisley), a corrupt cop who has to navigate a labyrinthine nightclub where his son is being held hostage by a crime boss. Not

Sleepless Night DVD Review

Director: Frederic Jardin

Starring: Tomer Sisley, Serge Riaboukine, Julien Boisselier, Joey Starr, Laurent Stocker, Birol Unel, Lizzie Brochere, Pom Klementieff.

Running Time: 96 minutes

Certificate: 15

With Taken 3 having been released this week, perhaps it’s about time to revisit this awesome little French action thriller. Sleepless Night holds many of the same ingredients that made the Liam Neeson starrers so popular. Actually, Sleepless Night far excels its bigger budget equivalent with more interesting characters and a punchier pace.

Tomer Sisley plays a corrupt cop who steals a whole lot of cocaine. However, after making a few mistakes during the heist, the gangsters that have been ripped off decide to take the cop’s son. This leads to a Sleepless Night in which Vincent (Sisley) must traverse a dangerous nightclub which sees him running back and forth as he double crosses fellow cops, gangsters, and must use the resources at hand.

A cop’s secret life is threatened to be exposed when he and his partner are seen stealing drugs from a powerful drug dealer. When his son is kidnapped and the drug dealer demands the return of what was stolen, the cop must figure out how to get the drugs into the right hands, protect his son and keep his secret from the other police officers who are on his tail. It looks as if it is going to be a long, sleepless night.

Sleepless Night shows us that French people can be badass too. Others have compared this film to Die Hard, which is understandable as there are many similarities.

We’re The Millers Blu-ray Review

Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber,

Starring: Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Will Poulter, Emma Roberts, Ed Helms, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Molly C. Quinn, Tomer Sisley, Matthew Willig, Luis Guzman,

Running Time: 112 minutes

Certificate: 15

It happens a few times a year. You see a trailer for an upcoming comedy that showcases plenty of laughs, decent characters, and actors you can imagine having great chemistry, only for the final piece to fall flat on its face and reveal that all the best moments were in the trailer. We’Re The Millers is Not one of those films. Instead, it’s a fast-paced comedy that lives up to the hype and often exceeds it, thanks to a very script and even funnier performances.

Sudeikis plays David Clark, your run of the mill pot dealer who ends up owing his supplier (Helms) a favour, and so must transport a “smidge” of pot from Mexico to the Us.

'We're the Millers' (2013) Movie Review

There's no secret to the comedy in We're the Millers, it's pretty low-brow and it's not exactly well constructed. The development of the narrative is sloppy and for all intents and purposes it's a film filled with "trailer moments" as it's more interested in delivering comedy that shocks rather than developing a series of punchlines and running gags. There's no problem with this, and there are plenty of laughs, but the laziness in nearly all aspects of the film's creation are glaringly obvious and once you round the final turn it falls to melodramatic pieces. A drug dealer (Jason Sudeikis) has his stash stolen and is beholden to his boss (Ed Helms) for a lot of money, but he's given an out (of sorts) when he's told he must go to Mexico to pick up a load of marijuana and smuggle it back into the States.

Red Band Trailer for ‘We’re the Millers’ Uses Jennifer Aniston’s Body to Distract Us From the Comedy

Can we all just agree that Jennifer Aniston has a great body? Not just for a 44 year old mind you, but a great body period? I think if she knew we were all in agreement she might stop relying on the need to expose it in movies and instead focus on finding smart scripts with interesting characters. Not that I’m making any kind of premature judgement on her latest film, We’re the Millers, based on the brand new red band trailer below. Jason Sudeikis stars as a drug dealer who agrees to smuggle a smidge of pot across the border from Mexico for a very wealthy man (Ed Helms). The plan is simple. Rent a wife, two children, and an Rv, and then avoid border suspicion by looking like nothing more than a happy family on vacation. Aniston plays a stripper he hires as his wife, and Emma Roberts and Will Poulter play their lovable

Film Review: Relentless Pace of French Action Hit ‘Sleepless Night’

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Chicago – “Sleepless Night” is a relentless thriller about corrupt cops, a kidnapping, a very bad drug deal, and a French nightclub filled with innocent bystanders. The majority of this accomplished action flick takes place in one location on one crazy night and the result is a more intense, visceral experience than a vast majority of the Hollywood blockbusters you could see this Summer movie season.

A corrupt cop named Vincent steals a bag filled with cocaine from a dangerous crime lord in the opening scene of “Sleepless Night” and not only does our protagonist get stabbed but someone gets shot. Before he can even really patch the wound in his gut, his son Thomas is kidnapped and held by the man whose drugs he lifted. There’s a deal that needs to go down. Bring the drugs to the club, trade them for his loved one, and walk away.

‘Sleepless Night’ Star Tomer Sisley Joins Jennifer Aniston Comedy ‘We’re The Millers’

With The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises dominating the summer there was still one film that managed to completely slip under the radar that packing the same pure entertaining punch. The French actioner Sleepless Night, which I last raved about during Toronto last fall, went quietly on VOD soon after its Tribeca premiere to unfortunately little recognition. While the film deserves to get its due, star Tomer Sisley is finally getting his first Hollywood, but unfortunately not in the same genre.

In a interview with the French publication Var Martin, the actor revealed he’s been cast in the Warner Bros. (the same studio remaking his break-out actioner) comedy We’re The Millers. He has not specified his exact role, but went on to confirm that this does not mean he’s abandoning the French film scene. For this new project, he’ll join Horrible Bosses stars Jason Sudeikis

‘Sleepless Night (Nuit Blanche)’ – a lightning-fast, intelligent piece of filmmaking

Sleepless Night (Nuit Blanche)

Directed by Frédéric Jardin

Written by Frédéric Jardin and Nicolas Saada and Olivier Douyère

France, 2011

Sometimes, a movie’s simplicity makes it effective. And whatever else can be said of Sleepless Night, or Nuit Blanche in its native France, it’s incredibly effective. Centered on an almost laughably basic concept—a French cop has to retrieve his son from a seemingly endless and seedy nightclub by returning some pilfered cocaine—this taut, relentless thriller from co-writer and director Frédéric Jardin is a must for any fan of the action genre. And if you get antsy at reading subtitles, forget it: Sleepless Night is breathless entertainment.

Tomer Sisley stars as Vincent, a crooked cop whose decision to, along with his partner, Manuel, steal ten kilos of cocaine from dealers working for a fearsome mobster opens the film. The theft goes awry, though: one of the dealers gets

Weapon of Choice

Sleepless Night, the heart-stopping French thriller from director Frederic Jardin, is full of standout action sequences (including a memorable chase through a dance floor full of gyrating bodies), but it is an epic fight between the hero Vincent (Tomer Sisley) and a crooked fellow cop, Lacombe (Julien Bosselier) in the nightclub kitchen that sets the film apart. Vincent is a highly-motivated participant - he is struggling to rescue his kidnapped son from gangsters and drug dealers who are holding the boy hostage at a massive Parisian nightclub. His corrupt boss is equally determined to silence Victor and secure a shipment of cocaine for his own purposes. The two men confront each other and struggle mightily before the terrified kitchen staff, delivering blow after punishing blow first with their fists, and then with any kitchen utensil or fixture within reach - dishes, bottles of spices, pasta strainers, slamming drawers, and knives
