  2. Ludovic72's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    Kaurismäki a eu l'excellente idée de faire jouer Jean-Pierre Léaud dans un registre assez inhabituel, un minimalisme tout en nuances qui rend ce personnage singulier crédible et émouvant. L'humour noir et l'ironie de l'histoire (la chance sourit aux suicidaires repentis) sont contrebalancés par des touches de couleurs vives... et la pause musicale offerte par Joe Strummer. Plutôt "bath", cette échappée londonienne !

  4. Klaus-hart's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    Bien des choses surprennent dans ce film, pour qui n'est pas familier de Kaurismäki : les ellipses audacieuses, la diction monocorde des acteurs, l'usage à la fois naïf et ironique qui est fait des clichés filmiques (on s'aime au premier regard, on fume toujours après l'amour, on est suspect si on commande de la limonade dans un bar mal famé, etc.). Mais tout cela contribue au charme curieux de ce film.

  5. Superfrog's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    Best Kaurismaki I have seen with an acute representation of living conditions in UK. Jann-Pierre Leaud is pretty brilliant in there!

  6. fada19's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    Du sur mesure pour Jean Pierre Léaud qui colle au film , magnifique

  7. Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    As "Calamari Union" was a tribute to Alex RAYMOND's Rip KIRBY, "Contract Killer" takes over nicely the codes of the photo novel. === Comme "Calamari Union" était un hommage à Rip KIRBY, d'Alex RAYMOND, "Contract Killer" reprend agréablement les codes du roman photo. === Bonus Jean-Pierre LEAUD & Serge REGIANNI. And beautiful Margi CLARKE, peroxidized like SEKA, Platinum Porn Pricess of the 80s, period of this film.

  10. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    Older Jean-Pierre Léaud can still get it.

  11. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

  12. VincentVendetta's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    Kaurismäki was so excited about getting Jean-Pierre Léaud the icon that he forgot about Jean-Pierre Léaud the actor.

  13. josé neves's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    35 mm, rewatched. A London that is a theater of materials, colors and spatiality of novel's imagery. A story that is a theater of influences: Bresson, Melville, the thriller. And Michael Powell, to whom the film is dedicated and from whose "Peeping Tom" inherits the otherness of a cinematic desolation (also Hitchcock's "Frenzy"). A study of cinematographic characters that is a text on the disinherited of capitalism.

  15. FISCHER's rating of the film I Hired a Contract Killer

    Le plaisir de retrouver Jean-Pierre Léaud dans une oeuvre "minimaliste" et mortellement décontractée, une marque de fabrique du nordique cinéaste ! www.cinefiches.com
