Not for all audiences, for sure.
I won't say any harm about this film from Belgium. It is a film of atmosphere, a film which the director was influenced by Abel Ferrarra, I am sure about that. But I preferred THE BEAST, another crime film of atmosphere too, a brutal film noir from Belgium which the story was not exactly the same however. Jérémie Renier is very good here, convincing at the most and I am also convinced that most of the audiences were disappointed. The ending was not a surprise but I would have preferred another one too. This feature was not widely released in France and I understand why. It as a daring topic where Belgium colonialism past with the Congo is spoken about, and that deserves to be pointed out.
A good film but not for every one.
