I was lucky enough to catch this in the cinema earlier in the year.
Loved it then, and loved it even more when I rewatched it on DVD after ordering it here from Amazon.
If this film had De Niro in it instead of Caan, or Scorsese instead of Camet name as director, it would be five stars all the way and there wouldn't be a bad review. Yes - its European looking, very bleached out, silences - but its a great film.
And the soundtrack! If your not foot tapping along to "Back in the New York groove" in under 2 minutes, you are either deaf, or just stupid!

Loved it that much - I bought the original French film that this is based on - Les liens du sang.

Get on board people and enjoy this great film.

A conventional yet good crime/family drama, with excellent actors. The choice of a this french director make it look less conventional than it could be, more focused on characters, dialoghes, atmosphere and less on action and usual cliche crime scenes, although I expected something even more original. It looks like a movie made by an american director who tries to himitate european crime films (in the tradition of noir and polar), and not like a french director who tries to bring his european background into an american story.

What a waste some great actors, including James Caan and Clive Owen!
They could have done so much more.
Simply a boring movie, although there were some great 70's tunes featured throughout

Boring. An absolute waste of talent. A hackneyed plot and a snail's pace don't make up for the authentic sense of period.
