A Self-Indulgent and Over-Processed Exercise to Nowhere
This film is not about corporate scandal, suspense or mystery; all
those elements were simply the vehicle to get to the point: Death & how
one deals with inevitable death. The story is extremely contrived and
overly elaborate, which became dull and frustrating because every
single character, item or action is just a device to metaphor.
At the end, the plot really isn't important nor the characters because
the film intentionally presents every one as a wooden puppet without
the slightest emotion or expression (The golden rule of filming art: do
not smile, remain expressionless, and add bleak).
It ends as you expect it to: The same death metaphor and the same
dreadful indictment against the capitalistic brutalities in every other
90 Minutes of Wasted Time.
I Cant believe i Wasted 90 Minutes of my life watching this,No
Action,Not Thrilling,Garbage.This film is very different from the one
in Other Reviews. So different that I wonder if the reviewer watched
the film or was told about it by Somebody involved in the Making of
it??.. The protagonist,Jimmy,was not seeking suicide. A contract
murderer was hired by his company to stop him from doing further damage
to the them. He was convicted in conscience by guilt over what his
company was doing, which was gaining control of Third World nations and
sanctioning ruthless acts against the people. Jimmy's friend Lulu
helped him survive as a Jew in WW2 France.Lulu bears witness to the
death of a civilian murdered by Nazis, thereby giving meaning and
history to that death. Jimmy discovers through a newspaper article that
Lulu has grown up to be a witness, a detective who sees and carries the
stories of what he has seen..
