Cartoonish, loud french version of Natural Born Killers!
The movie looks like the project from film-school( in a good way) of a very talented student. You can immediately recognize the influences of Scorsese, Oliver Stone, Tarantino and Asian action cinema, as well as french action films(especially the french humor). The director uses pretty much every trick in the book, including CGI in the Dobermann sequence at the beginning of the movie and over-all seems not to be sure what technique to stick with. The action scenes, which are numerous are very well done but some in-between scenes and dialog are not very articulate, and a bit hard to follow. The movie is a loud(soundtrack includes The Prodigy), action-pumped and colorful account of a heist organized by bad-ass Dobermann(Vincent Cassel) and his girl Nat the gypsy(Monica Bellucci) with their gang, and the events that follow, when psychotic inspector Sauveur Cristini (Tchéky Karyo) picks up the chase.
Vincent Cassel is brilliant as the violent criminal lead, in a Michael Madsen/Christopher Walken cross interpretation, as is Tchéky Karyo as the English one-liner dropping psychotic and violent cop, and Monica Bellucci is more violent and beautiful than ever playing a deaf-mute gypsy.
Tough, rough, stylish and explicit.
