Nous vaincrons.(We shall overcome)
23 October 2004 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

"Un pur moment de rock and roll" ,the title,is a misnomer.It is not about rock and roll unless this music equals drugs and nothing else.The first part deals with the daily life of a handful of junkies,one of them suffering from aids,their ceaseless fight to get their dose,their thefts and their hopes (if there are any).

The strongest scene might be the one with the judge(a woman) who gives the main character a last chance.

Thus ,the second part takes place in a detox mansion where Fedor Atkine helps the doomed youth to get by through work and of course group therapy and sport.Perhaps ,some sunlight does break through on this film ,which is very rare in the work revolving around junkies.Symbolism ,in the last scene,is too ponderous for what is finally an intimate story,but the rest of the movie avoids pathos and sensationalism.Two nightmare scenes shot in black and white.
