My 2nd viewing didn’t hold up as much. It isn’t that creative, nor is it emotive until the last shot fits the romanticism of its International title, The Faithful. The action scenes are shot well and fun, while the budding romance is cute, yet both are typically developed, even generic, thus inhibiting their power. Nevertheless, it has some good scenes, interesting foreshadowing, and that last scene is perfection.
Ach! The Cinéma du look is alive and well. The spirit of Jean-Jacques Beineix persists. Heck, so is seems does that of Tony Scott. Not a million miles off from Jacques Audiard. Part comic book and part soap opera. Things take a TURKISH DELIGHT turn. Sure. I went along w/ it. At the end of the day this is a two-pronged star vehicle featuring two insanely sexy stars. Yeah, well: what are the movies for after all?
Been waiting for this movie for two years precisely, back from when i saw Bullhead ( Roskam's first big statement that proves his amazing skills).
This movie may not be on the same level of intensity with Bullhead but this two definitely shares for most of the time the same dark, gritty DNA.
Exarchopoulos truly shines here and she really became immortal for me with this performance.
Le Fidèle 8/10. Pas de fleurs
It neither achieves the pleasures of an empty-headed, slick, sexy heist flick nor explores the hypocritical machinations of flashy one-percenter society and the seedy criminal underworld that bolsters it.
