The Italian version omits all references to Eric (Jean-Hugues Anglade's character) being HIV-positive: the moment when he tells about it to Zed is not included. Also omitted is the dialogue at the end, when Zed tells Zoe that the blood covering his face is mostly Eric's (suggesting the possibility that he might have been infected). See more »
A rough and sometimes sordid movie is a short way to summarize this film. It's about a no-nonsense gang of drugged-out French thieves whose bank robbery attempt backfires into a bloody mess.
For those who object, be warned there are a fair amount of subtitles in here and a lot of f-words. This was a tough gang, and the lead characters are pretty grubby, they aren't really very likable people.
I like Jean-Hughes Anglade's accent and I always like ogling Julie Delpy, although I've seen her look better. The city of Paris looked good with some nice shots in the beginning and at the end of the movie.
Anglade, as the leader of the gang, was brutal but fascinating. My only complaint was the film was too sordid in spots (drugs, language and attitude). but overall, an entertaining crime film. It gets your attention and keeps it.
