Je ne suis pas un salaud

Emmanuel Finkiel France, 2015

msmichel's rating of the film A Decent Man

Nicolas Duvauchelle's Cesar nominated performance is the main reason to watch Finkiel's overwrought film. Derivative at best the scripting leaves a lot to be desired in a tale of an under-employed man trying to come to terms with his estranged wife, his son and his lack of vocation after being involved in an assault on his person. Duvauchelle truly gives an inspired performance but the film falls flat.
