Long time before Total Western
24 March 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This crime movie speaking of gangsters facing off young delinquents in the deep South of France reminds of course TOTAL WESTERN Eric Rochant's film, made in 2000. All long the film, the audience expect the fight between the two groups, and every one wonders who the good ones are among all those hoodlums, including them "to be". This was a rare film, till last year. The main weakness is maybe a midcast concerning the gangsters. Pierre Mondy and his sidekick were maybe not the best choices, but their acting is more than OK. This is also a topic speaking of the juvenile delinquency and the people in charge to reeducate the young hoodlums. Good characters study and performances too. The story and atmosphere are pretty close to the novel it is inspired from, but maybe not each detail of the book either. Jean Amila, the novelist, made mostly social crime flicks.
