Product Description

Product Description

SLEEPLESS NIGHT tells the story of Vincent (Tomer Sisley, The Burma Conspiracy), a respected and dedicated police officer - or so it seems. After he and a colleague are recognized while stealing a massive bag of cocaine from drug dealers employed by local mob boss Marciano (Serge Riaboukine, Mondays in the Sun), Vincent quickly finds himself trapped in a situation that no parent would envy: His son has been kidnapped with the promise of execution if he doesn't immediately deliver the bag back to its rightful owner. Vincent heads to Marciano's nightclub on the outskirts of Paris to make the swap, but competing interests and misplaced loyalties soon threaten to complicate the exchange. The ensuing game of cat-and-mouse quickly spirals into madness, sprawling across every seedy back room and pulsating, claustrophobic inch of the crowded dance floor. With enemies on all sides and time working against him, the night to come might not only be the longest but also the last for Vincent and his young son.

The French thriller "Sleepless Night" is a movie that pulls no punches. It doesn't have lofty goals or meaningful subtext and that's perfectly all right. It aspires to entertain by being a mean and relentless excursion into action movie mayhem and it easily succeeds as one of the year's most exhilarating adventures. By serving up a high octane thrill ride, "Sleepless Night" becomes (for me) one of the year's biggest surprises. In case you can't tell, I really loved this down and dirty film! From a plotting standpoint, you've certainly seen it all before. There are good cops, bad cops, drug lords, and local gangsters all on the prowl for a cache of narcotics. What makes the movie so enjoyably twisted, however, is that most of the action takes place in an immense nightclub on the outskirts of Paris. The various parties collide or evade one another in congested parking lots, busy kitchens, labyrinthine back offices, rollicking dance floors, and bustling pool halls. This is one hot club! I want to go there NOW!

The movie starts out on familiar territory. A car chase and shoot-out results in the theft of a rather large bag of drugs. All is not how it would seem, however, as the major players have conflicting alliances. I won't divulge too much, part of the film's pleasure is how the revelations unfold as the action progresses. In the midst of the set-up, we're introduced to a local police officer played by Tomer Sisley. Sisley is in the middle of several rival factions, and his son is taken as a pawn to manipulate him. This leads all the key players to the aforementioned nightclub and this is where all bets are off. The pacing is fast, the scenarios are clever, and the staging is perfectly constructed.

The story is about this dirty cop who steals drugs from the bad guy. The bad guy abducts his son asking him to return the stolen drugs. The bad guy got into trouble with a "badder" guy from West Indies, because he could not deliver the drugs. The dirty cop goes to the night club owned by the bad guy to free his son. Pretty much rest of the whole movie unfolds in the night club. A sequence of events happen and another dirty cop gets involved too. It may sound complicated but I was able to follow the plot with no problem. The issue I have with the movie is that so much of crap goes on in the club from people trying to kill each other to the people actually dying and no one calls the police. I don't know how things work in Paris, but if this club was in the U.S., the swat team would be on the premises locking down everything.

The hero, the dirty cop and the dirtier cop, the villain, are almost super humans. Another guy would have broken his back by falling on the steps, but not here. The villain is some kind of a super human, who keeps coming back more energetic after every beating.

It could have been a great movie, but sadly, it was not.

This movie really moves! I caught it online because I missed it during the tribeca film festival, but I'm glad I saw it. It's a thriller where a dirty cop's son is kidnapped, and in his pursuit to return to the life he had, he takes paths in which there is no going back. What is refreshing is that this movie "goes there" in that it not so much breaks cliches as ignores them, and as this thriller veers aways from the familiar formula of thrillers, you start to realize that you have absolutely no idea what is going to happen next.

Vincent is a police officer, but is also involved with drug deals and the mob. His involvement with the mob gets more-and-more dangerous as he makes deliveries, pick-ups, and promises. After he gets into deep trouble from problems with the mob, his son is kidnapped. The clock ticks fast as time is not on his side, and his situation could be tragedy for him and his son. Action-Packed, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and thrilling from start to finish. Highly Recommended!

Before this fine French film gets Hollywoodized, as I'm sure it will, check out this lean action thriller. Tomer Gazit Sisley plays Vincent, a cop who also does a little side business robbing mobsters of their drugs and reselling them to others. During a heist on neighborhood streets, he is stabbed and identified by the local mobster, Marciano (Serge Riaboukine).

Marciano abducts Vincent's 15 year old son, Thomas (Samy Seghir)and holds him for ransom. The rest of the movie takes place in a suburban Paris nightclub run by Marciano. It seems Vincent is also being watched by a pair of police internal affairs officers. Vincent attempts to return the satchel of cocaine, but through a well-orchestrated series of events, it is misplaced.

Beautifully directed by Frederic Jardin, this low-budget film is full of action, tension and hand-to-hand combat within the confines of the packed club. There are a couple twists included to keep it all interesting, but in the end it's hard not to root for Vincent's relentless effort to rescue his son. Terrific film.

French cop Vincent (Tomer Sisley) and his partner kick off this film by stealing a cocaine haul from a crime kingpin, they intend to sell it themselves for personal gain. Then, in an unforeseen turn, this kingpin - Marciano - kidnaps Vincent's son. The deal he is presented with is simple; bring back the drugs and the boy will go free.

His son is being held in Marciano's labyrinthine night club - the brilliantly named `Le Tarmac' - but things go bad from the off as there is more than one gang after the drugs, plus Vincent's fellow officers are also after him and all of them will collide inside the packed night club.

This is just brilliant edge of seat stuff, whilst not a complete action fest it is full of claustrophobic tension and is the sort of thriller that gets your adrenaline levels ramped up. Sisley puts in a show stopping performance as the desperate cop and father working in increasingly stressful conditions. There are some humorous asides too and that helps to bring a level of humanity to what are essentially not very nice people. In French with good subtitles and a run time of 98 minutes, this is one of those films that has the wow factor and if you enjoy European thrillers then it will be one you will want to see.
