Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E4 - April 2012 (63 movies items)

" French film based on a true story. There was something about the blending of the non-linear time line and story told from the killers perspective that didn't quite work for me. Really, it ends up being another film that tries to understand the murders from the killers perspective and giving the inevitable answer that 'there is no answer'."

An unknown jewel

“There is another unknown French movie. The main character is played by Daniel Auteuil, one of the most famous French actor (at least, in France...). The movie is based on an amazing true story. The main character is married with children. One day, he loses his job but instead of telling his wife, he keeps pretending he still has his job. Every morning, he lives the house and the evening, he comes back but actually he does nothing the whole day. For a couple of years, it goes actually fine. But he has to lie all the time, he has huge debts and his life gets more and more chaotic. It is a very tense and intense movie and I thought the whole thing was just fascinating. Definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in French movies.” read more
