ONE OF THE BEST FRENCH FILM-NOIR OF THE LAST YEARS
Fury at the heart ! This is not precisely a classic of the French cinema but the story of Jeanne and Marie deserves a place in the best movies of action. Robin Davis is not Hawks nor Wilder but he did certainly a good job.
Jeanne, her second husband, Michel, and her teen daughter Marie live quietly in the South of France. Actually she is hiding a mysterious past in which she took part with her first husband and his friend in a bank robbery.Her husband was killed in the action and only Jeanne knows where the money is.
One day, a man enters violently in their lives, raping Marie and turning the life in a nightmare for the two women. That man is seeking revenge for passing 15 years in jail and trying to recover the money. This is only the beginning of a long story with impressive consequences.
As I said after seeing " La Banquise ", Clémentine Célarié is a great actress and Robin Davis could go a long way as a director. My only surprise is that the members of IMDB have not yet put a rating at this good movie,eight years after his production. For me it's 9 out of 10.
