Gamblers

Set in the Rue Saint Denis garment district of Paris, this derivative gangster flick is worth seeing only for its two charismatic male leads: Simon Abkarian (Yes) as an Armenian cardsharp and enforcer and Pascal Elbe as his cohort, who gets in trouble for protecting an illegal Chinese emigre. Linh Dan Pham, so beguiling in The Beat That My Heart Skipped, plays the femme fatale who's dumped Elbe, but she's just another generic staple in a movie that uses the tensions roiling France's immigrant underclass to drive an action plot. Frederic Balekdijan directed. In French, Mandarin, Armenian, and Arabic with subtitles. 80 min.
