Patrick (Vin­cent Cas­sel), a psy­chother­a­pist sick to death of lis­ten­ing to the banal­i­ties of people’s prob­lems whilst pre­tend­ing to care, picks up sociopath Remy (Olivier Barthelemy), who has just assaulted his mother, and the two quickly form a friend­ship.
Manip­u­lat­ing each other dur­ing their vio­lent road trip, seek­ing ret­ri­bu­tion for all the suf­fer­ing they’ve had to endure in their life­times, Remy decides that the real answers to his prob­lems will be found in Ire­land, where he dreams he will assume the man­tle of a red­headed mes­siah…
This is the first feature film by Romain Gavras, director of M.I.A's controversial 'Born Free' music video, in which armed men round up redheaded teenage boys and force them to run through a wasteland littered with landmines. Is it a surprise, then, to learn that our two leads share something else in common? Read the full review by clicking on either picture...
