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.

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.

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.

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!

Tomer Sisley is an amazingly intense actor! I just discovered he's a stand-up comedian, which I find a little hard to believe since he plays such serious, intense characters in both of the movies I've seen him in (this and The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch). I have no idea what kind of characters he's played in other films, though, since I haven't seen them. I just would never have guessed he was a comedian.

This is a good movie, but if you don't like to read subtitles, then this might not be for you. Otherwise, if you're a fan of fast-paced, gritty (French) thrillers, then you should check this out. Tomer Sisley apparently likes to do his own stunts, and his character (Vincent) gets beat on quite a bit in this movie (I kept wondering how much more he could take, until he finally gets knocked out!), but it's not crazy, over-the-top violence a la Quentin Tarantino. It's "normal"...whatever that is! LOL! You know what I mean. There's some blood, but not too much. I mean, Vincent is a cop who's tangled up with bad cops and drug dealers, so of course there's going to be some violence...

Anyway, if you're a fan of other French actors like Jean Reno, you might like this too.

Enjoy!

I wanted to pee half way through the movie and refused to go use the bathroom until the movie was over. It's unusual to find a movie that maintains interest after the plot is completely blown in the first 30 minutes. I loved the good guys and the bad guys. Does anyone know where that nightclub is? The scenes were so realistic I felt like I was there, especially the fight scene in the kitchen. Hooray for the French! I will add that the best part about this FANTASTIC movie was that I got to see it at no additional cost because of my Amazon Prime membership. Hooray for Amazon!

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.
