Self Made Hero, A


France 1996, 105 minutes
Dir. Jacques Audiard
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / War

Topics: Period 1940s.


Aroview: Mattieu Kassovitz (director of LA HAINE) proves to be no slouch actor here as a WW2 idler who swats up and cheekily ascends the ranks of the post-war military elite by passing himself off as a Resistance hero. Absurd premise almost makes it, but serio-comic tone deems it to feel either too far-fetched or perhaps not-quite-clever enough.
