Storyline

Paid is a film noir in the tradition of the French gangster movie. It is a story about underworld characters that have come to regret the choices they have made and now secretly long for a different and more meaningful life. It is also a love story between Paula Gireaux , a 28-year-old Parisian call girl working in Amsterdam and a hit man, Michel Angelo (30) whose hearts are touched when a six-year-old Bolivian boy abruptly enters their lives. The boy changes their fate. He gives them reason to reach for their dreams and to start a whole new life together. But, at the moment Paula and Michel decide to escape the underworld, Paula realizes that her hands are tied to a paid deal she has made with a powerful English narcotics baron, Rudi Dancer (55). The enticing offer Paula could not refuse, turns into the demon that stands in the way of her future with Michel. Eventually, Michel and Paula find their way to freedom but not without paying a high price. Written by Anonymous

Excellent movie, which proves itself with the better crime movies
20 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent movies, which tells it story through it's images, with the music and the excellent performances of the actors. It seems as a cliché film, but it is not. If you look carefully -I saw the film two times- you see the subtitle acting from carefully casted actors. Tom Conti is giving away one of his best performances since a long time. Guy Marchand is playing marvelous. Anne Charrier is the new discovery in France. And there is this Dutch actor playing Bennie, which I find terrific. Not forgetting the beautiful score of Jaques Morelenbaum, which gives together with the lighting a warm feel into this harsh story of criminals. Murilo Benicio, our Brazilian proud, makes of a harsh killer a man with a heart, which takes the movie above many other crime movies.
