I Hired a Contract Killer Reviews
Set in England: A French man named Henri Boulanger (Jean-Pierre Léud) has been working for the past 15 years in a company; all of a sudden, he is made redundant from his job. He is given a golden wristwatch as token from the company. He has been lonely and depressed, eventually attempts to commit suicide - when hanging himself with a fine rope that he purchases, fails; later, he decides to suffocate to death by turning on the gas and sticking up his head inside a stove, unfortunately that too goes off in the nick of the time due to workers strike at gas companies. Ultimately, he hires a contract killer to kill him - this wish of his lives for short, since, the next day he falls in love with a flower-seller woman. Now, he must terminate the contract or else the murderer has already hit on the trails.
Jean-Pierre is humbly innocent in this film. Excellent production designing, perfect tranquility pertained by the actors to solidify the characters. Although the movie is dark-comedy and yet it bears strong message, anyone who has gone through loneliness should certify the movie to portray original aspects experienced by ordinary hard-hit people. Pure entertainment with mesmerizing soundtracks.
Een heerlijk droog verhaal van een rustgevende, doch boeiende eenvoud, cinematografisch in een adembenemend compositorisch spel van kleur, licht en schaduw gegoten. Een aanrader voor elke cinefiel.
Rien que le synopsis resume a lui seul ce film completement etonnant !
Its recognizable filmmaking.
For my POV this guy does a very successful job in all of his movies. Even if this is not his best film its very watchable and enjoyable. Minimal shots, minimal dialog, specific colors and a nice story with a strong subtext.
Watch it if u have tha chance.
U might learn something about... smoking :)
