Product Description

French language with English subtitles.

From the Back Cover

Take a walk on the wild side

Ruthless, cunning and sexy, The Dobermann (Vincent Cassel - Elizabeth, La Haine) is a class-A criminal for the 21st century. Along with his stunning partner Nat the Gypsy (Monica Bellucci - L'Appartement) The Dobermann leads a crazy gang of bank robbers into one of the most daring heists of all time. Fearless, insane and packing some of the most awesomely high-tech weaponry ever seen, Dobermann and his gang are thirsty for action.

Hot on their trail is the sadistic renegade cop Christini (Tcheky Karyo - Goldeneye) who will breka every rule, legal and moral, to personally dispense with The Dobermann. Christini sets a merciless trap for his arch enemy and his gang which culminates in a relentlessly explosive confrontation, finally bringing the tow evils face to face...

A visually stunning cocktail of gunplay, adrenaline-fuelled action, dazzling special effects and a pumping soundtrack featuring The Prodigy, Dobermann is a frenetic assault on your senses. You have been warned.

DOBERMANN

(France - 1997)

Aspect ratio: 2.39:1 (Super 35)
Theatrical soundtracks: Dolby Digital / DTS

A psychotic police detective (Tcheky Karyo) pursues a gang of armed robbers led by the ultra-charismatic 'Dobermann' (Vincent Cassel).

A colossal one-fingered salute to the bland, homogenized pap dominating international cinema at the time of its release, DOBERMANN not only set debut director Jan Kounen on the road to cinematic glory, it also helped kickstart an aggressive upsurge in ultra-commercial European cinema (the 'Taxi' series, BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF, CRIMSON RIVERS, THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE, etc.), begun two years earlier by Mathieu Kassovitz's equally subversive LA HAINE (1995). Fans of political correctness need not apply: DOBERMANN is loud, excessive, obnoxious and morally ambiguous in equal measure, and while some viewers may be unable to reconcile themselves to the action and violence of Kounen's raucous worldview, others should cling onto their seats and prepare for the ride of a lifetime...

As the above plot synopsis attests, Kounen and scriptwriter Joel Houssin (upon whose pulp novels the film is based) have stripped the plot down to its barest essentials and constructed a series of instantly recognizable character-types (saint, sinner, braggart, dimwit, etc.), thereby liberating Kounen to indulge his true objectives: To push the boundaries of cinema to their absolute limits. DOBERMANN is a swirling tornado of audiovisual delights which unfolds via shock cuts, hurtling camerawork, loud explosions and in-yer-face action set-pieces, a heady mixture of Hollywood gloss and Hong Kong stuntwork ramped to the max. You want subtle? Try Merchant Ivory. THIS movie wants to gouge your eyes out!!

Hardcore japanese action spectacular, cross-bred with typical french class and style. This film is a brash and unashamed cops 'n robbers caper, with the dials all turned up to 11. Guns and cars, grenades and transvestites, you can't go wrong with Dobermann.
Cassell is, predictably, a star act and very watchable, once again encapsulating a role and yet remaining Vincent Cassell. As the anti-hero leader of a gang of seriously crazy bank robbers he lights up the screen with his blase cool. Belucci had never been sexier, and Karyo is one bad mother as the cop on Dobermann's case.
At once a film that will keep your head spinning with the non-stop action and occasional twist, as well as making your spine tingle with the awesome violence dished out by, and at, all and sundry.
Just don't take it seriously. top fun.

*** This comment may contain spoilers ***

For fans of extreme cinema, Dobermann is almost a must-a good blend of violence, style, and craziness with a thumping soundtrack and over-the-top acting and set-pieces. It lacks the edge that other 'extreme' movies have, and is devoid of any compassion, but on the other hand it does not go far enough to disturb the audience. A good cast does well, particularly Cassell and Karyo as the respective charismatic robber and psychotic cop, but at times the mashing together of genres does not work completely.

Cassell stars as Dobermann, a man with a penchant for violence ever since his birth. He is the boss of a notorious gang of misfit robbers who have been preying on Paris for years. His nemesis is Cristini, a cop whose sadistic nature means he abuses his power and position and will stop at nothing to catch Dobermann and his mates. After a large heist with suitably insane weaponry Dobermann has plenty of money, but Critini is getting closer, and eventually they meet and a long chase ensues. The plot may not be original, but it is always interesting, violent, and well worth watching.

There are plenty of outstanding scenes here amidst the wackiness- the grenade inside a motorcyclists helmet while riding, the grenade in a baby's pram, the head being scraped along the road at 90 mph etc. It tries hard to be cool and stylish, and mostly it works, just a pity there is a lack of substance which would have made it a classic of the genre. There is nothing special as far as extras are concerned on the DVD.

Dobermann and his beautiful super-gun wielding deaf girlfriend, Nat the Gypsy, are just two of the members of a gang whose success rate with bank heists is driving the policy crazy. Determined to catch them, one evil renegade cop takes this too far. When Christini and Dobermann meet...well to say that it is explosive is an understatement!
Dobermann is a very stylish and beautifully shot film. Guns, weaponry and the after-dark life of transvestites abound and mix in a dizzying tale of life on the other side of the law. The guns are fantastical, the pace is fast and a top soundtrack make this a film well worth watching.

Format: VHS Tape
This is a comic book action film, and therefore you should not expect anything but cheap, shallow escapism. However this is done so well it becomes a guilty pleasure, it is so exaggerated and with such style you can;t help but revel in the action. Fundamentally the glossy, stylish, exciting camerawork of Kounen leads the film into two truly fantastic performances from the leading anti hero and 'evil' copper, played by Vincent Cassel (Brotherhood of the Wolf, Irreversible, Elizabeth, L'appartement, La Haine, Crimson Rivers, Shrek) and Tcheky Karyo (Bad Boys, Nikita) respectively. Monica Belucci is sexier in Dobermann than in anything she's starred in since.
America cannot touch this kind of action film, because irony at it's own shallowness is a pre-requisite for true unburdened enjoyment. Very few US action films have this, rarity's like Tim Burton's original Batman movies are the exception. The overblown characterisations can wear thin at times, but all in all the film doesn't take much investment and leaves you smarting at just how cool it is. The violence is par for the course, and all in all Dobermann is a slick, well budgeted, exercise in visual indulgence.
