A Violent Life Dirigido por Thierry de Peretti

Opiniões dos críticos

Narratively complex, “A Violent Life” gradually draws viewers into an inexorable and menacing tragedy. Less interested in dramatizing crime than in exposing the hidden stakes of power, history and memory that underpin Corsica’s tourist-friendly image, de Peretti doesn’t skirt the issue of violence, while DP Claire Mathon’s lensing keeps pace with the action without overdoing the handheld dynamic, giving the film a compelling physical vitality that happens to be one of de Peretti’s key strengths.

An ambitious time-hopping tale cast with distinctive-looking but mostly little-known performers… The Corsican-born director imparts a powerful sense of place, aided by fine period details and an ever-simmering sense of dread.

Despite a worthy cause — Corsica’s tumultuous past has rarely been depicted onscreen — and a few standout moments, A Violent Life (Une vie violente) never quite becomes the engaging and sprawling thriller that it should. The plot tends to get muddled in too many details and is not always easy to follow, while its young and ambivalent hero feels emotionally distant and intellectually vague.
