Short, taut, grim French crime thriller--slickly done but leaves you feeling dirty.
This film is a solid French crime thriller, although it's pretty much lacking in truly likeable characters and is pretty reliably grim throughout. If it went on for much longer it wouldn't be tolerable, but it's such a short film that I found it quite watchable. (You do have to read subtitles, but it doesn't exactly depend on college vocabulary skills.) It may have been trying to glorify criminal activity, but it didn't have that effect on me at all. It frankly makes burger-flipping look like a much more desirable occupation than committing serious crimes. You feel kind of dirty and in need of a shower after watching it, but given its abbreviated viewing length, you've got plenty of time left to hose yourself off quickly. I'll leave it up to you as to whether or not this is the kind of experience you're after.
