Review

Arnaud Desplechin’s fourth film, is a male requiem about money and power. Although it may seem to have been done too many times before, as quoted in his interview ‘of wanting to make a judicious political film noir’, in this film, one can take a look at the director´s interest in genre films. This film was made as a result of the funding difficulty that led to the discontinuation of shooting in 2002. While realizing on film the play of Edward Bond who mostly directed works of Shakespeare, the director deliberately follows the character portrayal and the cinematic format of the B-rated American political thrillers of the 70’s and its narrative conventions as well. In particular, the cinematic experimentation and the challenges carried out by cross-editing of the 6mm digital shots of the actors’ rehearsals with the ´actings´ in the real film footages is quite interesting. This film will provide an excellent opportunity to familiarize with the cinematic viewpoint and the digital aesthetics of Arnaud Desplechin. For a director whose portrayal of the dysfunctional family in the medium-length feature , the corruption of the nation-state in the long-feature , the quotidian pressure concerning sex in , this genre film makes his acute perceptivity of cinematic themes all the more refreshing.
