MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Headhunters

Notwithstanding the enormous plot-holes and overall implausibility, "Headhunters" offers several instances of pure cinematic delights. But the recapitulation at the end is utterly pedantic and spoils the pleasure of figuring out the intricate twists and roundabouts. Expect the customary American remake for the suburbanites who can't read subtitles.
