A new director is born, he's talentful
11 February 1999 | by kheopsSee all my reviews

If Djamel Bensalah reads it, he can write me because I have many things to tell him, positive things. If the screenplay is not very tough, we see with the way of directing of that new director that there is something very new, with many ideas of directing, as the scene where the heroes are in the nightclub, in order to show that they're boring, he did a reference to IAM's videoclip "je danse le mia" or the reference to old movies, when Hollywood movies were good movies (except this year with "The mask of Zorro", very honest) like "Casablanca". But sometimes, when it's filmed with hand camera, the result is sometimes under the average quality of the movie and some people may find it exhausting. Then the acting is quite correct, but we also see Jamel Debbouze, but different than in his weekly prestations in "H" and "NPA1", but there are new actors that we ought to watch out for the future.
