Point Blank, or A Bout Portant to use its French title, looks mindblowing and the word is that the film is a relentless tour de force that never lets up and will leave you breathless. Check out the two trailers, now with English subtitles to get the idea of just how amazing this film looks! The film had a small theatrical run in the UK in June, but will really find its home on DVD and Bluray when it is released on October 3rd. I have mind pre-ordered on Amazon already, this is gonna be an absolute must buy for fans of world cinema and nail biting thrillers. The film is directed by Fred Cavaye, here is the synopsis:
Samuel Pierret (Gilles Lellouche) is a nurse who saves the wrong guy — a thief (Roschdy Zem) whose henchmen take Samuel’s pregnant wife (Elena Anaya) hostage to force him to spring their boss from the hospital. A race through the subways and streets of Paris ensues, and the body count rises. Can Samuel evade the cops and the criminal underground and deliver his beloved to safety?
