No goods but only bads and uglies...
I love this movie, only for this reason. The story stinks, so do the characters, everyone more ruthless than the other. Impossible to feel any empathy for any of them. It's a world of sharks, disgusting dudes, ready at anything to achieve their purposes. Anything. Roschdy Zem is absolutely outstanding here as a kind of hired hand, or may I say killer, whom two friends pay to get rid of their boss: the two are played by Nicolas Duvauchelle and Raphaël Personaz. Roschy Zem's character is here totally ambiguous, nasty, disturbing, in the line of some characters that Robert Mitchum had in the past such as NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, CAPE FEAR, FIVE CARDS STUD. You can(t really see what he is after, where he drives at. The climax is also unpredictable. A very distrubing, that stinks, that nearly makes you puke; I love it.
