Movie Info

In this French drama, Gaspar Noe, who won awards (Prix Georges Sadoul, Cannes Crix Week) for his 40-minute Carne (1991), continues where that film ended, beginning with a Carne recap: The Butcher (Philippe Nahon) narrates, telling how, as a war orphan working at 14, he opened his horsemeat butcher shop and fathered a mute, retarded daughter. After the mother and daughter left for life in a Paris suburb, he served a prison term after an assault on someone he mistakenly believed had raped his

...I Stand Alone will not easily be forgotten - and in this day and age, that's an incredibly rare thing.

Certainly, there are aesthetic pleasures in I Stand Alone, but they don't redeem the depraved heart that beats at the center of the film.

Surprisingly sensitive as well as genuinely shocking.

More of a young turk provocation than a measured and mature intercession on rage and despair, but it certainly achieves the unsettling effect Noe intended.

Noe deserves credit for a cinematic vision which is remarkably his own.

For all the static bleakness of his movies, Noe does have a sinful sense of play.

The real violence here, the far more deeply disturbing violence, is the violence inside the mind of the protagonist.

I didn't give a flying fuck about Irreversible, and considering how terrible it was, I was hesitant to check this one out. Thankfully, it wasn't as bad as I'd feared. Noe fantastically displays the feelings of a common man and what one has to suffer in day-to-day life. The frustration of the central character (the butcher) is displayed marvelously. However, I was disappointed by the ending. IMO, the director took it a bit too far. And I wonder how true it is to say it was a creative scene. That scene displays how rotten the director's mind is. Some call it creativity, though. Well, to each, his own. Then again, I guess I wasn't the target audience here. So, in a way, it's my fault that I'd to witness such horrible and pretentious sequences.

Taking into consideration all the aspects, Morality and Justice do leave some impact, but the final stroke (which, in my humble opinion, was totally unnecessary and avoidable) is equally harmful.

The deranged horse butcher from Carne is now struggling to regain any control of his life after spending many years in jail. This is a fantastic story, incredibly disturbing and heart-wrenching, with an amazing performance by Philippe Nahon and an absolutely brilliant final act.
