Product Description

Product Description

A tense horror thriller from French directors Caroline and Eric du Potet. Travelling home at night along country roads, Sarah (Anne Parillaud) nearly runs over a frantic young man, Arthur (Arthur Dupont), standing in the middle of the road. Bloody and exhausted, Arthur claims to be on the run from a burglar who he surprised mid-robbery, and who now wants to kill him to protect his identity. Taking pity on the teenager, who is the same age as her son who died a year before, Sarah gives the boy shelter, only to discover that by her actions, she has also now become a target of the deranged, murderous burglar.

Synopsis

The dark horror thriller In Their Sleep unfolds with Sarah (Anne Parillaud, Nikita, Innocent Blood) coming to terms with the death of her teenage son. While out late one night on a lonely road Sarah almost hits a young man who staggers into her path. Bloodied and terrified Arthur, the young man, recounts the earlier events of the evening and claims his injuries were sustained when he caught a burglar. Vowing to help him, Sarah unwittingly delves into a nightmare she may not escape.

The french are near the top right now when it comes to serious horror and this is no exception. It's by no means the best french horror available and is far from original but it is pretty good. It's about a woman called Sarah (Anne Parillaud) whos son dies in mysterious circumstances, and her marriage breaks down soon after (presumably) and she moves to a more rural location to try and deal with her grief. On her way back from work as a nurse at the local hospital she almost runs over a young man Arthur (Arthur Dupont) who reminds her of her son. He claims to have been attacked by a burglar who he saw and is hysterical and convinced he is being chased by the man who will stop at nothing to kill him..

The acting is superb, both the leads are fantastic and Anne Parillaud in particular is very convincing. Also gotta mention Thierry Fremont (the man chasing them) who puts in an equally great performance. The violence and gore is realistic and surprisingly minimal and mostly involves knifes and throats. Theres no graphic closeups or anything like that, if you are expecting a gorefest you will be disappointed. I liked the way the story shows flashbacks before resuming at certain points which gives us a new perpective on things.

A few things I didn't like so much, first her sons death right at the start is never explained. Suicide? Don't think so. Accident? Not likely. I wish there was more on that. I also wish there was more on the killers motives behind executing everyone. The twist while good is easy to see coming and is shown pretty early on. The script also requires some suspension of disbelief but the acting is generally so strong you can look past that, though the ending is disappointingly anticlimactic.

Quite a hard film to watch, understand and then review. It is excellent in that it does make you think, work out what's going on and in it's intriguing entertainment.

The French film is a horror thriller with a difference, being dark and complicated and developingly complex. A woman who is struggling to deal with her son's death befriends a young man, but enters a series of nightmares whereby a scary man hunts them.

On summary, this is a modern example of smart foreign horror thrills, with a clever idea that is both confusing and commendable.
