Yvan Attal, Clovis Cornillac, Pierre Richard, Simon Abkarian, Jean-Claude Bouillon / Fiction / French
Classy, edge-of-your seat French thriller.
Opportunistic thug Plender (Clovis Cornillac) has a near-failsafe money-making system. Identify a weak, wealthy, married target. Send in a gorgeous girl. Get photos. Demand payment. But when Plender catches up with an old schoolmate made good, fashion photographer Vincent (Yvan Attal), the scale of his operation suddenly expands - as does the extent of the damage done. Because the two men have a history, and - at least the way Plender sees it - there's a considerable debt to be paid... Based on the British novel Plender, by Ted Lewis, this dark-hued tale of blackmail, guilt and vengeance is as sinuous and twisty as its title suggests. HM
