A Crime (2006)

A Crime (2006)

Genre: Drama / Thriller
Director: Manuel Pradal
Starring: Harvey Keitel, Emmanuelle Béart, Norman Reedus
Duration: 100 min.
Rating: 6.4/10

Vincent's life is on hold until he finds his wife's killer. Alice, his neighbor, is convinced she can make him happy.  She decides to invent a culprit, so that Vincent can find revenge and leave the past behind.  But there is no ideal culprit and no perfect crime... 


A Crime is a 2006 film written and directed by Manuel Pradal.  It is a French style thriller set in New York City, with interesting performances from all three lead actors.  With great cinematography that really captures the city as a character in the film.  However, the story, situation, and dialogue lack realism, and just feel off.  This could have been a great film with some cleaning up.

This looks pretty average, shame because Harvey Keitel is a great actor, he just chooses his roles pretty badly...

Yeah editing and some rewrite of the dialogue

Bonjour Tristesse said...

Yeah, his talent is too often wasted.

Ergh, double post. Sorry, the best I can do is to edit it so it says, well...this.

When you say "cleaned up" do you mean editing?

French thriller, New York, Harvey Keitel.....all sounded so wonderful until you said it could be better with some cleaning up. Either way, those are still things that excite me so I'll check it out.

I've been so busy I've been neglecting a few blogs, sadly this has been one of them. I promise to do better. I really do enjoy coming here. Thank you for your hard work!
