Hard-hitting French thriller. Sebastien (George Babluani) leads an impoverished life with his immigrant family, constantly struggling to find the money for their next meal. When hired to repair the roof of the morphine-addicted Godon (Philippe Passon), Sebastien eavesdrops in on a conversation which appears to offer a quick and easy solution to his money troubles. Taking on the identity of Godon, Sebastien follows a series of clues which lead him ever closer to his impending fate. The trail eventually leads Sebastien into the heart of the French countryside and face to face with a ring of clandestine gamblers who bet on human lives. From this point on there is no turning back.

I'm not going to go into detail in terms of the plot, as the film is much more effective if you the viewer descend alongside the main character into the depths of civilized depravity. It starts innocently enough, with young Sebastien (George Babluani) doing some repair work on a certain gentleman's roof. While he is working, he overhears this man talking about a letter he is expecting, a letter detailing an opportunity to make a great deal of money. Fate would seemingly have it that this letter would fall into the hands of Sebastien, and he makes the decision to pursue its mysterious promise himself, despite the fact he has no clue what it relates to. (As an immigrant, struggling to take care of his family, he decides to take the risk.) All he finds in the envelope is a train ticket and a hotel ticket, but these start him on a journey filled with cryptic clues, clandestine movements, and deepening mystery. At the end of that journey, when he finally realizes just what he has gotten himself in to, he has no choice but to play everything out.Read more ›
The UK interview offers a decent transfer with an interview with Gela Babluani and Georges Babluani the sole extra.
A young man working on some drug addict's house steals a letter from him. The letter eventually leads to the young man becoming embroiled in a Hostel-style underworld of gambling on people's lives. Yes, the pivotal scenes are gripping, but one would have to be a staggeringly inept director not to make them so. The good idea, the twist on Russian roulette, covers a large amount of the running time. I've read a few other reviews that talk about existentialism and the philosophical nuances of this film. Which sounds good. The problem with existentialism is that it is brutally simplistic- existence is harrowing. Existentialism has been a formal artistic consideration for some time now and, personally, I no longer find it sufficient to construct what resembles an existential platform but do nothing new with it. This looks quite harrowing, it is dark, it places its characters in a difficult position. But nothing new is being said. One of the gamblers keeps asking his player to consider his position philosophically. Ever intent, I took this as a heavy-handed hint to do likewise. And ended up scratching my head. Existentialism is a circular consideration- you need ferocious intelligence to break it and give us something new. It's best expression is in Dostoyevsky and Camus. This film just kind of goes through the motions, it says, 'check out how dark these circumstances I've contrived are' and then walks away, apparently satisfied.
It's shot in black and white. The beginning scenes are slow and sombre in a typically French-arthouse manner.Read more ›
