Sebastian, a young man, has decided to follow instructions intended for someone else, without knowing where they will take him...
It'll blow you away!
Do yourself a favor. Don't watch a trailer for this movie. The trailer
is a spoiler, and I'll do my best not to repeat that mistake. Set in
France. Starring French and Georgian actors. This movie is a powerful
tale (in black and white) of desperation, risk and deadly consequences.
An immigrant worker (an unremarkable man with ordinary ambitions)
overhears a conversation about some risky business, with the
possibility of a high payoff. In a twist of fate, he takes someone
else's place in a mysterious gambit, and places himself in great danger
for the chance to collect on a huge payoff. When the stakes turn out to
be higher than he expected, there's no escape from this deadly game. An
incredibly tense thriller, superbly paced and acted. The writing was
excellent. Tight, taught and well thought out. Written and directed by
Géla Babluani, this director did a fantastic job of moving writing into
realization using this film. I'll be on the look-out for more by this
