Fairly effective
4 March 2008 | by pkperaSee all my reviews

Interesting idea, well developed and executed. Start was perhaps little pale, but under squash-verbal duel we could see what 'fair-play' goes in jungle called employment in happier part of World.

After it comes real survival thing in wilderness, very well shot. We can think how far we really developed from wilderness 'population'...

Actors were very good - in not easy conditions in second half. For non-French people most is unknown. I knew only about Marion Cotillard, who I saw first in Taxi (only as decoration), then she proved that is class actress in 'Un long dimanche ...' .

Pacing was very good, and duration of 90 min is just apropriate for story and events.

Watch it if can find...

I ask myself: will Hollywood remake this, and how much overdone ?
