Something Is Missing To Be a Great Movie
In Paris, Antoine (Guillaume Canet) is a ne'er-do-well, using all the possible tricks the get into private parties and nightclubs. He lives the nightlife, and sleeps nearby a swimming pool of a gym club. He uses the name of a mysterious man known as Jordan to get into a private party, where an old man gives him 100,000.00 French Francs, with the promise of another 900,000.00, is he gets any information about the location of Jordan. Antoine and his friend Étienne (Gérard Lanvin) chases Jordan through the Parisian night, and Antoine meets Jordan's sister Violaine Charlier (Asia Argento). Violaine is considered a weird person, who bites her lovers in the neck. Antoine gets involves in weird and dangerous situations while pursuing Violaine and her brother. Something is missing in `Les Morsures de L'aube' to be a great movie. It has a beautiful photography of the night of Paris, excellent soundtrack and the sexy Asia Argento. However, the story is very confused and the conclusion is very disappointing. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): `Cães da Noite' (`Dogs of the Night')
