Why?
31 December 2006 | by kregenowSee all my reviews

Nothing more to say. Except perhaps that the only reason to endure this sorry effort is Sami Naceri. He's not as convincing as in Petit Ben for instance, but this is rather due to the poorer than poor direction.

Anyway, I'll never understand why there are people out there feeling the need to foozle a masterpiece with their less than mediocre efforts.

The same thing is bound to happen when next year the assault on "Le Deuxième Soufflé" will happen to see the light of day.

What about a little respect for the work of a genius? It should be common knowledge, that the films of Jean-Pierre Melville can't be surpassed. Who's gonna save us from such a crap when even the french start to beat the Americans when it comes to making trashy remakes of their masterpieces? What's next? A remake of "Le Samourai" starring Tom Cruise? Argh!
