| convoluted but interesting
In this complicated story we follow the steps taken by journalist/writer Daniel Salmon to uncover the truth about murders in the town of Hyères in the south of France. A rather cold blooded writer this Daniel Salmon, and not easily deterred by people dying around him. I think this is not a bad movie even though there isn't much action in it. What counts is more what's not said, what stays hidden from us. The events in this movie will not surprise anyone, because, thanks to a much higher level of access to information, we see so much corruption these days in the highest levels of society. But you might be left to wonder, as I was, what is pushing this writer to keep at it while people are dying around him. The weird part is that he's not even from that city, Hyères. So, what's pushing him to take chances, and endanger other's lives. I don't know. As much as I hate corruption, it's just hard to get sympathetic with such a character. The facts exposed, the way people in position of command in a city can use illegal acts, downright to murder, remains interesting. Specially when you know that it is based on a true story.
