Best Foreign Thriller of 2011
"Director, Fred Cavaye' brings us the" Best Foreign Thriller of 2011!!'
In less than 90 minutes, the audience is virtually running-along with the characters in this film at break-neck speed.
At the start, we see Sartet(Roschdy Zem), a career thug, being chased by 2 armed assailants and violently hit by a motorcycle and the pair trying to kill him.
Hospitalized, Sartet's life is saved by a nurse, Samuel(Gilles Lellouche), who thwarts another attempt on Sartet's life.
At home, Samuel is knocked unconscious and his pregnant wife, Nadia(Elena Anaya) is kidnapped.
Samuel is told to get Sartet out of the hospital or else!!
This starts the frenetic chasing that continues almost non-stop until a mostly satisfying end occurs... or does it?
With the exception of a few Ouch, violent, moments, this film is well-paced,
directed and acted.Point Blank is not for the squeamish, but holds up well for the action/adventure that it portends to be!!
