There was a spate of British gangster pictures released round about the same time, most of them undistinguished, but this one stands out due to the high-calibre of its performances. The inspired, against-type casting of Kingsley particularly comes up trumps; he's never been better as a terrifying sociopath, dispatched to the sunny bliss of rural España to 'persuade' an old criminal associate to take on a bank heist..
A tout moment, on sent que tout peut arriver ! Jonathan Glazer parvient à maintenir une tension incroyable tout au long de son film, admirablement composé, sans se prendre trop au sérieux pour autant : il s'amuse et nous tient! Remarquable interprétation de Ben Kingsley ! Cet acteur peut tout jouer !
Pretty good performance by Kingsley. He really manages to play the loose-cannon type really well. I would have liked a but more subtly about where the body was hidden at the end of the film. It felt like the makers didn't trust me to figure it out myself.
