Taut French crime flick
3 October 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

An authentic film noir from France as I crave for. Pulled by two promising actors: Mathias Schoendoerts, who has the perfect hoodlum face, lost man who faces his doomed destiny; and Reda Kateb, who is not used to crime movies, rather dramas. One of these men is a cop, the other a gangster. Both grew together. The last seconds are so powerful, so poignant. A pure fist in the face. A kind of MANHATTAN MELODRAMA scheme,the 1936 MGM production starring Clark Gable and William Powell.
