A very good movie

Most of the time, French movies are remade in (very average) American versions. This time, we have a French movie which is actually a remake of (unknown) American movie ('Fingers' by James Tobak with Harvey Keitel). Quite surprising... Even more surprising is that this "remake" happens to be a great movie! The directing is great, the acting is awesome and the story is just fascinating. It is a ver... read more

"Remake of: Fingers The RemakeThis French remake is in my eyes divided into two separate stories, that certainly connects with each other, but only one of those parts are really interesting in my opinion. And that's his relationship with his piano teacher. The other part just comes across as your typical gritty-crime-drama, and is not as interesting for me. All though seeing as how that part of his life affected him and his piano playing was neat. The ending is also leaves a rather bad taste in"

" Plot: Should Tom make like his thuggish father or pursue his dream of becoming a pianist? This is actually a French remake of the Harvey Keitel film "Fingers" (1978). Despite my love for Keitel and for this film I still doubt I'll watch the original. This film deals more with internal emotional conflict. There is some external conflict but that is secondary to the story of the conflicts of ones nature and past versus what one dreams of becoming."

"Nothing special. Kinda let down from Audiard because his latest movie "A Prophet" (2009) was so good. "
