Evil Does not Retire

When a truck trafficking children is intercepted in the desert by the army, one of the traffickers is captured. Interpol agent Frank Salek (Joey Starr) comes to the police station with his partner to interrogate the prisoner. However, the man lures his partner and commits suicide in the toilet. Frank, who is addicted in pills and is haunted by his past, finds three names in the prisoner's cellular that is broken.

In France, the President of the International Court Laura Bernheim (Marthe Keller) is chasing the Blackstream Army, an evil organization protected by worldwide authorities.

In Paris, the retired and awarded detective Lionel Kasdan (Gérard Depardieu), who grieves the loss of his wife, is summoned by the parochial priest since the regent of his choir Goetz Willhen (Joe Sheridan) has been found dead in the church. The coroner has found foot steps of children around the corpse with stain of blood. Kasdan decides to conduct his own investigation and finds that Goetz was Chilean. He also discovers that Goetz was homosexual and had an affair with a young man named Naciro (Kévi Meffre).

When Frank learns that Goetz is one of the men in his list, he travels to Paris and meets Kasdan in the beginning of the most unlikely partnership. Together they discover an evil plan to eliminate Ms. Laura Bernheim.

"La Marque des Anges – Miserere" is another engaging French thriller with a complex story. This movie is underrated in IMDb, maybe because of the complexity of the plot that has many details. There are also clichés do give the necessary dynamics to the plot. It is always a pleasure to see Gérard Depardieu that has the decency to perform a retired detective; therefore he is perfect for the role. This is the first movie that I see with Joey Starr and he has a great performance in the role of a tough and traumatized agent. "La Marque des Anges – Miserere" is not a masterpiece and has flaws, but is above many other thrillers; therefore it deserves a chance to be watched. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Assassinato Em 4 Atos" ("Murder in 4 Acts")
