Bruno DAVERT (Jose Garcia) is locked-out for economic reasons. To finda new job, his method is simple : kill the other candidates. Hisbehaviour changes, and his wife Marlène(Karin Viard) feels Bruno movingaway from the family, from herself and from the true life.Costa-Gavras shows as the unemployme...
Loved it! Loved it! A terrific satire of the modern corporatedownsizing which destroys a man's pride and then everything else.Better yet, this social satire is packaged as an absurd black comedy -serial killer story. A picture of the world we're living in. Don't takethe killings too seriously. Obvio...
People who characterize this film as a comedy obviously haven't got it.The comic element is just a thin surface. This is a tragic story and avery strong political statement. Obviously Bruno's decisions andactions are absurd, but his circumstances are not. The movie offers anincisive look at the dark...
I completely disagree with the reviewer who called this a'TV movie'.it's anything but... (did he see it on a TV screen?). It's a thrillerthat actually deserves to be called by that over-used adjective'Hitchcockian' as we gradually identify more and more what the leadcharacter who starts off as what,...
Many years ago there was a film starring Alec Guinness called "KindHearts and Coronets", which took the case that a member of a wealthyfamily murders off his relatives to inherit the estate. "Le Couperet"offers a similar plot, although this time a disgruntled unemployedengineer becomes an inept assa...
*** May contain some spoilers ***"Le Couperet", the last Costa-Gavras, talks about the insanity provokedin a middle-age manager after the loss of his very specialized job in acompany that rearranged its stuff aboard by economic convenience. Theplot, very well adapted from the novel "The Ax", by Dona...
Costa Gavras has a reputation for very serious and very politicalthrillers. He first came to prominence 40 years ago with "Z", a filmabout a political assassination in his native Greece. Of his oeuvresince then I have seen and enjoyed "State of Siege, about the Tupamarosinsurgency in Uruguay and "Mi...
Maybe the best 'noir' movie I've seen in the last years, anddefinitively the best Donald Westlake adaptation so far, "Arcadia" isthe story of a man obsessed with a job, who thinks that the only way toget it is killing every candidate who can be better than him, and mustcope with his many mistakes an...
Costa -Gavras 's body of work does not lack in unity.Except for his two fist movies,which were thrillers , a romantic tale("Clair de Femme" ) and a comedy that does not count ("Conseil deFamille' ) all that he has made display social and political concerns.From his early French classics ("Z "(He is ...
We are introduced to Bruno Davert as he is being recognized for hismany years of service for a paper manufacturer. Little does Bruno knowthat soon he will be on the unemployment line because the company hasdecided to outsource the work to a Rumanian firm. Thus begins the storyof a man's sudden desce...
"Le Couperet" certainly gets off to a gripping start, and more or lessremains gripping for the duration. It is by turns funny, shocking, andthought-provoking (it was probably not Gavras' intention, but itreminded me of Woody Allen's "Crimes And Misdemeanors"). It is alsoquite prophetic, considering ...
I'm a big fan of Costa-Gavras' political films, they really are thebest in their genre. I was taken by surprise by this film, because Ihad no idea Gavras can make funny films also, since he normally is sopolitical/critical.This movie is a delicious dark comedy! It's intelligent and thematizesa curre...
Continuing my mission to watch every item in Costa-Gavras' filmography,I turned to Le Couperet, one of his most recent movies. Written withlong-time collaborator Jean-Claude Grumberg, this is the adaptation ofa Donald E. Westlake about a family man who's sacked after years ofloyalty and dedication t...
Here is a really original idea for a movie. Bruno Davert is a Frenchexpert in a profession that falls victim to consolidation and lay-offs.His losing the job does not really seem to affect his material life,thanks maybe to the French or European safety net, but does hurt him inhis personal life and ...
The thirty-nine years old executive Bruno Davert (José Garcia) has beenworking for fifteen years in a paper company. After a merging operationwith a Romania's company, he is fired in a downsizing. While unemployedfor two years, Bruno loses his self-esteem and sanity and his familyloses the middle-c...
Costa Gavras is a master of the political film. Political films ingeneral are not my cup of tea. They try to convey some kind of messageto the public, and they do it by portraying the persons in a stylizedway, losing in depth in the process. People are portrayed realisticallybut their conflicts are ...
There is no doubt that Costa Gavras is a major film director withtremendous global appeal. One would find it impossible to find aserious cinéphile who does not remember not having seen classics shotby him namely 'Z', 'L'Aveu', 'Etat De Siège' etc. He has made filmsboth for Hollywood and European f...
I've seen "Le Couperet" and it impressed me.There is a lot of suspense.And influence from Alfred Hitchcock movies.Costa-Gavras himself came to my country (Brazil) to give a lecture andanswered questions about cinema and his movies in March 29, 2005.He talked about how he started making movies and th...
As a fan of previous Costa-Gavras films, I was disappointed in thismost recent effort. I was doubly dismayed that nearly everyone whoreviewed it here seems to have missed the point entirely.Here's a sample from another IMDb user: "In USA (as far as I know), forinstance, some unemployed people live o...
I saw this Costa-Gavras movie in a theater. During 2 hours, you followa man who went crazy because, after his lay off he is not able to findanother place as a chemist in the paper industry. Since he cannot thinkof doing another job, since every interview for a job ends with ameaningful "we'll call y...
... nothing else than that. Indeed, the history does not really explorethe leitmotif of the film, in any moment. Probably, the two encounterswith two of the victims (the waiter and the salesman) can brig moreevidences about the real situation portrayed by the main character thanthe rest of the actio...
I haven't read the novel by Donald E. Westlake on which this movie isbased but I have read several of his works and til now I never had himpegged as a plagiarist but here he's at it twice over; firstly he liftsa title, Ax, already used by Ed McBain in one of his 87th Precinctnovels and then the plot...
