The French film industry’s response to the economic crisis? €50 million by Friday or the fat-cat gets it. With obligatory finger-lopping included in the wish-fulfilment package, it seems odd that Rapt’s prevailing tone is so sober; as if Belvaux (of 2002’s acclaimed Trilogy) wished to imply that multi-millionaire bankers, living an adulterous, decadent, high-flying lifestyle on other people’s dime, were people too? (Wifey even excuses his affairs on the basis that he’s got a lot on his mind, or something.)
But hey, we get it. Cover story. Under the radar. Nice one, Luke. With you all the way!
