Absorbing, sophisticated
This movie is also being rented out as "an honest dealer", and may be referred to as "step by step" - although there is another movie called "step by step" which is not "Un honnête commerçant". So, there. To those who need a bit of a respite from the Hollywood type heavy duty drug dealer drama, this provides welcome relief. A very absorbing and riveting tale that makes up for the lack of fisty-cuffs and knock-em down drag-em-out by a very inventive plot. Set in Belgium though it hardly matters where. You will be very busy trying to second-guess the principal character's reasons for saying and doing what he says and does. You will not be bored ! Subtitles are of the new generation - they stand out clearly and are easily read without visual idiocies so common in older subtitles. Outstanding acting by the character in the starring role and the usual fine performance one would expect from Phillippe Noiret.
