Editorial Reviews

A stylish contemporary tale set in the streets of Paris, and reminiscent of The Bourne Identity. It's his birthday and he goes through his morning rouine as if this is just another day. We don't know his name but we soon suspect something is about to unfold. As a student of Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" our man sets into motion a meticulously planned execution. What follows is everything but a quiet day, as our man has a series of encounters with women, adversaries, and associates, often with sinister, gruesome results. As the story unfolds the mysterious man's life gradually unravels leading to a very unexpected conclusion. Included as an extra: L'AUTRE FEMME (THE OTHER WOMAN); a stylishly twisted tale of an affair gone wrong in the tradition of fatal attraction.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

A man (Christian Baltauss) goes through his daily routine, slowly revealing that things are not as mundane as they appear. A QUIET DAY is a quiet movie w/ an almost gentle atmosphere, yet it deals w/ corruption, child sexual abuse, and murder. Baltauss has few lines of dialogue, letting his actions do most of his "talking". He is a complex, interesting character. As the story unfolds, we are drawn into a subtle mystery w/ some nice twists along the way (the man's identity / occupation came as a complete shock to me!). Don't expect car chases, explosions, or karate battles. A QUIET DAY isn't as obvious as that. Also includes a short film w/ Baltauss called THE OTHER WOMAN that has a satisfying twist of it's own. French w/ english subtitles...

…says it all as we follow a typical day for a man whose life isn't what it would seem to be. Easy paced with minimal dialogue and almost surreal. Stylized, existential flavor, with unexpected turns. If you are looking for action, this is not for you. If you are looking for a thoughtful movie, this one deserves watching.

A QUIET DAY (Un Journee Tranquille) is billed as another Bourne look-a-like, but I couldn't see it and didn't like it. Turned it off after about 30 min. Waste of time.

This is a phenomenal film. That said, obviously a large percentage of people who don't know what they are getting into will not like it. It has low production values compared to what many expect. What does it have in its favor? An understated story, a story that is at once highly intellectual and yet practical and real regarding vice, policing, and the criminal world, besides the best noir, the director has obviously carefully studied the likes of Bresson and Bergman, the latter as to face shots, the former as to spareness of the plot. The film requires a bit of patience, but centers around the timeless logic and philosophy of Sun Tzu's, Art of War. As the book is read, the ideas in it are clearly expressed... and yet a surprise is coming--depending on your perceptions of the prevalence of official corruption--that can or does throw all of the readings into both heightened relief and into question. After having sat through it... I was almost ready to give up, I left with the feeling have having viewed a subtle masterpiece of film making that a larger studio simply could not and would not produce.
