Jacques Gamblin, Olivier Marchal / Fiction / French

Two ageing nightclub owners have the worst night of their lives, but will it be their last?

Audience Award Nominee

With the city streets of Paris stylishly deployed to maximum dramatic effect, explosive bursts of deftly-handled action and a score straight out of clubland, it’s hard to believe that this slick, high-octane thriller is director Edgar Marie’s debut feature. In the central roles, Olivier Marchal and Jacques Gamblin are superb, their volatile, fractured relationship stretched to breaking point as one fateful night’s events spiral dangerously out of control.

    Fun, but slightly underwhelming overall. I was left with a feeling that I'd seen it all before, it just didn't grab me.
