Nuanced thriller. Renier is Gabriel Chevalier, an ex-cop whose personal life has taken a nosedive. He's a gambler, an alcoholic, a widower and single-parent to a rebellious teenage daughter. Unable to hold down regular work, he takes up the dubious offer of a job which involves sitting in an empty office waiting for the phone to ring. When it does, Chevalier is told to deliver a black briefcase to a specific address. One final instruction, he must never, ever, look inside the briefcase.Written by
If you get a lot of money, for something that is "easy" ... well you can imagine that there is more to it. And the viewer knows it and the ex-cop who's doing the job probably knows it too. But money buys a lot of things and let's people sleep well. The story itself is a slow-burner, especially at the beginning, but picks up the pace towards the end and gets really good there.
So the first half might be something you have to fight through, but there is some reward, even if you can't relate to the main character. The little girl is really good acting-wise and the story does pack a punch or two, which you might not expect like that.
