Mad dog and French men
6 October 2011 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

OPINION 1: thanks to the French Nouvelle Vague,the cinema was taken out to the streets :everything happens in the darkest night,while the city sleeps.Matalon was influenced by this fantastic school

OPINION 2: the screenplay is nothing ,copying John Huston 's "while the city sleeps " and countless others :the story is monotonous ,nothing in store for the audience

01:the nouvelle vague allowed new actors such as Claude Brasseur to play lead and to show their talents ,far from the old school.

02:BrasSeur is not that new :he had been playing since 1956,often supporting parts (sometimes with father Pierre) but even leading acts ("Le Mystere DE La Chambre Jaune"MTV)

01:Dany Carrel has plenty of go and although she is at ease in this modern directing,she acts naturally as Arletty used to do.

02:where are Prevert and Jeanson and their lines?

01:the ending is sublime and avoids the maudlin side of melodramatic thrillers ;it's almost an "open ending" ;who knows?

02:they just wanted to economize on film

01: this "mad dog" is the son of Belmondo in the sublime "A Bout DE Soufflé " ;a young man lost in a dark world where he does not know where he stands anymore :the loot becomes something abstract and his enemies heroes of a comic strip he's living in ...

O2 :Yada yada yada !
