Blow for blow : Directed by the legendary French film producer Marin Karmitz
31 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

There have always been clearly defined classifications of what a feature film and a documentary film should be.This is the reason why almost all the films follow this classification.Rare are those films which do not follow such a classification.Coup pour coup directed by Marin Karmitz is one such film which openly flouts this rule.It is not entirely a feature film nor is it a documentary film.Of course it has some non professional actors.The blows in question are the ones which some striking workers (most of them are women)would like to give to the factory and its management.In the film there is immense proof of female solidarity as most of the striking women share a family bond with each other.This is a highly inventive film rarely shown on international film festival circuits.I got a chance to watch this film on the French channel TV5.This is a good film by Marin Karmitz.It is a pity that after this film he did not direct any other film.A must for those who want to watch some unusual film.
