Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed director Claire Denis s jagged, daringly fragmented and darkest film is a genuinely contemporary film noir inspired by recent French sex ring scandals involving men of wealth and power. Vincent Lindon (Denis's Friday Night) stars as Marco, a sea captain gone AWOL to avenge his brother-in-law's suicide and to rescue his estranged sister and his teenaged niece (Lola Créton, Goodbye First Love); Chiara Mastroianni (A Christmas Tale) is Lindon s married lover, who has sold her soul in exchange for the security of her young son; and the remarkable Michel Subor is her husband a sleazy financier who is the very embodiment of an evil beyond comprehension. Denis takes the viewer into the very heart of darkness in her most unsettling film yet, an unforgettable and thrilling commentary on late capitalism.

Interesting, but for me not ultimately satisfying. The film has a great mood of building dread and tension, aided by solid performances from the cast. Subtle and understated. Recommended if you like dark movies that don't follow conventional story lines and expectations. Effective, minimalist soundtrack, and well-shot.

******* CAUTION: SPOILERS !!!!!!! ************************

Really.... spoilers below!!!

As the story gets pieced together, you yearn for the arc of the outcome of the sea captain's mission for vengeance.
I think it's the director's intention, and the point of the story, to thwart that, and it makes for a very dark movie and no sense of catharsis. For me, ultimately, this left me liking the movie intellectually but I felt sorry for the lack of resolution. Truly not a neat and tidy, happy ending. But I think the director achieved what she wanted to.

Released in France as `Les Salauds' this is the latest from the highly distinctive French film maker Claire Denis. It is about Marco who is a super tanker captain; he returns to Paris after his sister, Sandra, calls him back. Her husband has committed suicide and she holds corrupt businessman, Laporte, responsible. So Marco moves into the same apartment block where Monsieur Laporte has installed his mistress and son.

We are never quite sure what form of retribution he is aiming for we just know it won't be nice. But as ever with a Claire Denis film, we have more intrigues and sexual shenanigans and the more Marco finds out about his sister the more things become complicated. This is a film that demands attention or you will miss parts of the story or not realise the significance of certain scenes- to say any more would be entering the realms of plot spoiler.

Denis always makes interesting films that do not always fit the pigeonholes we like to use for cinema and this is no exception and well done to het for that. The music is by Stuart A. Staples (Tindersticks) who has worked with her before on `Nenette et Boni' and `Trouble Every Day', Denis is probably best known for the poetic `Beau Travail', but this is far removed from that work and whilst being quite dark it is still a riveting watch. In French with very good sub titles - a film for Gallic fans and those who like things a bit different.

I loves certain aspects of this film as it was certainly not predictable. It is dark & twisted, but definitely not boring

BASTARDS focuses on the experiences of sea-captain Marco (Vincent Lindon), who returns from his ship to find his sister Sandra (Julie Bataille) in trouble. He moves into the apartment above rich business person Edouard (Michel Subor), whom Sandra holds responsible for her troubles. As Marco becomes more involved in the case, so he discovers to his cost that the intrigues are more complicated than he anticipated. Set in contemporary Paris, Claire Denis creates a claustrophobic thriller, full of close-ups and tight two-shots in which the protagonists' faces seldom fall out of view. This helps reinforce the film's principal theme, which is to show how actions often have unforeseen and unintended consequences. Although Marco believes he is doing the right thing, his actions are misunderstood to such an extent that Edouard moves away, taking Sandra's little son with him. Perhaps this is due to Sandra's penchant for not telling Marco the truth about herself and her life; but Denis seems to suggest that Marco fails to consider the ways in which his behavior might be viewed by others. We never know who the "bastards" of the film actually are; perhaps it's one of those terms of abuse that people apply to others, especially when they are in tight situations. The plot remains taut throughout, and there is an unexpected dénouement that deserves our attention. Definitely worth a watch.
