Did You Know?


The film was completed only after a string of difficulties, interruptions and financial problems which stretched out over a period of two years. Ivan Govar agreed to shoot this "Série Noire" in Paris after several months of unemployment. In the end, much of the action was filmed in Antwerp as part of a co-production. See more »

Fed up!
19 January 2015 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

"Ce Soir On Tue" (=tonight,killing!) has two alternate titles :"Y'En A Marre" (=fed up!)and "Le Gars D'Anvers" (=the guy from Antwerp) Yvan Govar made two offbeat intriguing works :"Un Soir Par Hasard" and "Deux Heures A Tuer" ,the latter in real time ,à la "the set up";the rest is indifferent thrillers ("Le Toubib Medecin Du Gang" "Le Circuit De Minuit")

In spite of its three titles,this movie has absolutely nothing to offer:a run of the mill story of drug traffickers,a spate of clichés :big chief,violent scuffles,Russian roulette,and a list (of members of an organization,who cares?) Too bad for the actors whose characters lack any depth.René Dary ,who began his career in the silent era as a child actor for Louis Feuillade ,is a miscast as the evil boss,being better at comedy;Pierre Trabaud was not lucky in the movies ,and is only remembered as the student in Becker's "Rendez -Vous De Juillet" and the schoolteacher in Yves Robert's "La Guerre Des Boutons":he 's not very credible as an Interpol agent .Jess Hahn plays his colleague. (this is the only modernity of the movie: TWO cops) Although the film was shot on location in Antwerp,the director does not take advantage of the murky atmosphere of the harbor.He did a better job with the railway station in "Deux Heures A Tuer".

"Y'En A Marre" is also a rather lugubrious song,performed by a Chanteuse in the nightclub.
