Two-bit thriller.
10 June 2002 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Thrillers are not French director's forte.Their métier has always been the psychological detective story,but in recent years ,the genre has almost completely disappeared.To name but one Claude Chabrol magnificently blended mystery and social comment. But it was then and this is now and the French directors are dreaming of a true thriller "à l'américaine".So this movie respectfully follows the rules:two cops,a monstrous killer,the de rigueur trip to an American prison where -in the grand "silence of the lambs " tradition-French cop meets a prisoner with a bloody past,the beautiful girl used as a bait.Berberian really wants us to feel we're in a genuine American thriller.His movie was made to invite the audience to sit back and get some scares.

So it may have been,but if so it signally fails in its purpose.Worse than the worst of all American thrillers,"six pack" pits listless Anconina and his insignificant pal against (oh my God) a serial killer who's got diplomatic immunity!Too bad Bernard Fresson appears only at the beginning.He's by far the best actor of the lot,Mastroianni being reduced to a walk-on in a bowling.
