Let's be clear; that's not a great movie, not a masterpiece, but I love this film. Remember J'IRAI AU PARADIS CAR L'ENFER EST ICI?, twenty one years ago, also directed by Durringer and also written by ex con Jean Miez? Here you have another hoodlum tale taking place in Thailand, a place which Durringer has some connections with; check one or two of his past features. In this movie, you have a table conversation scene made with a long shot, as you also had in J'IRAI AU PARADIS, with excellent dialogues and character scenery...As Durringer probably took from Tarantino's RESERVOIR and also a heist that we never saw. That said, back to this movie, that's not a so good film as directing and sometimes acting, but thta's a bloody, drak, bleak and brutal gangster film, in the pure film noir tradition. I highly recommend it for crime films lovers.
