Charly Mattei has turned a new leaf on his past as an outlaw. For the past three years he's been living a comfortable life and devoting himself to his wife and two kids. However, one winter morning, he's left for dead in the underground parking garage of Marseille's Old Port with 22 bullets in his body. Against all odds, he will not die.Written by
The home of Charly's mother shown in the film, with its distinctive yellow color and columns on the porch, is the youth hostel outside of Cassis near Marseilles at La Fontasse. Its location in Google Earth is at 43°12'59.78"N and 5°30'35.53"E. See more »
Towards the end of the film, a man is eating a slice of pizza and telling a young man playing a video game what to do. He turns around and the slice he is eating is suddenly less eaten than it was before. See more »
I am fond of thriller movies where dramatic events happen in the very beginning. And where you must follow the plot intensely, not just nodding and seeking clichés... There are lots of events and lines where it is not sure what the solutions will be.
Jean Reno's character fills most of the scenes and all this is enjoyable to watch - he is one of the finest French contemporary actors. L'immortel, of course, is not as good and popular as Leon, or Ronin, where Reno has starred before, but it is still a highly recommendable action movie where fans of Luc Besson's work will not become disappointed.
