Blackmail. Deneuve plays a mother trying desperately to save her daughter (Diane Kruger), from a questionable relationship.Written by
Actually, I still wonder if this film is a pure drama or a crime movie; maybe a little both. This is the story of a young woman - Diane Kruger - involved in a romance with a petty thug - Nicolas Duvauchelle, the French Matt Dillon, the kind of actor who, even in his forties, will continue to play youngsters characters - a thug himself involved with the local and particularly violent, fierce kingpin - played by a convincing Olivier Lousteau - to whom he owes a big sum of money. Duvauchelle is pretty disgusting here, and Kruger special too as the broad madly in love with the guy who despises her. Kruger's character's mother is here played by Catherine Deneuve, as terrific, if not more, than ever. So, that's the basic plot, the scheme of this story that will not reserve you many surprises but will not deceive you either.
