A new thriller in clear, to discover on France 3 after Inside Man.
On this Friday evening, it will be a question of flights and freedom, on France 3. The channel will first offer the nice success of Spike Lee, Inside man, worn by Denzel Washington, Clive owen and Jodie foster, then continue at 11:15 p.m. with A handsome thug, nice first film by Lucas Bernard, released in theaters at the start of 2019. Première liked it a lot, especially for the performances of its three main actors, Swann Arlaud, Charles Berling and Jennifer Decker. Here is our review.
We had left Swann Arlaud in the countryside with this Little Peasant who won him a Caesar. We find him here with another first feature but in a more urban territory, that of the Parisian rooftops where his character of picture thief likes to wander. A small atypical thug that a cop in no hurry to retire is going to follow suit. Not so much to try to stop him as to take advantage of his freedom. Because this first film does not get lost in counter psychology. By choosing as an antihero a character freed from any moral obligation, Lucas Bernard leads his story into unexpected twists and turns. A treat to play for its actors very comfortable in this space of freedom: Swann Arlaud therefore, Charles Berling and the all too rare Jennifer Decker, half tangy candy, half unpinned pomegranate. A trio that plays together an invigorating score.
