Once more Tahar Rahim shines in this riveting drama, made by a French female director whose it is here her first movie. Tahar is so good in this petty punk, lousy character, so convincing that you may wish to get into the movie and blow his head off when you see how he behaves with the poor girl. And I Don't even speak of Jean Michel Correia, terrfic as a brutal debt collector. That's not a film noir, nor a crime movie, but only a drama about gambling addiction. A pretty well made character study.
