L'instinct de mort

Jean-François Richet France, 2008

Stefan Drees's rating of the film Mesrine: Killer Instinct

Intriguing movie with excellent camera work: look especially at the split screen sequence at the beginning with its simultaneity of successive moments or the camera movements within closed rooms and narrow spaces… And I think Vincent Cassel is brilliant - like a tightrope dancer living on the edgde and trying not not lose his balance.
