Four prisoners escape and seek refuge in a Cistercian monastery, where nothing is what it seems. Isolated from the rest of the world, begins a nightmare among the fugitives, willing to kill to protect their freedom and monks whose hostages.Written by
In a violent heist in a house of a French family, one of the members of the gang leaded by Marcus (Moussa Maaskri) and formed by Poupousse (Marc Chapiteau), Rafik (Jean-Louis Loca), Gippé (Jo Prestia) and Christian (Patrick Dell´Isolla) rapes the housewife. Christian protests, and is shot by Marcus with the rest of the family. Thirteen years later, Christian is converted in a monk, after putting all the criminals in jail in a life sentence. One night, in the monastery where he lives, the young woman Carla (Julie-Anne Roth) is lodged by the monks for one cold night, while the four guys escape from the prison. Their car has a problem in the radiator close to the monastery, they trespass the gate, and arrest and torture Carla and the monks. The story has a weird end. I liked this movie: it has a magnificent quite gothic photography and atmosphere, an excellent soundtrack, a good screenplay and, although exaggerated, it has very violent and realistic scenes. The conclusion of the plot is very confused and I am not sure that I have really understood, since it seems that something is missing, but anyway it is a good French movie. I intend to see it again, trying to make the end of the story clearer for me. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): `Insanos' (`Insanes')
