The Killer

Dark-eyed dandy Gilbert Melki and sullen, feral-looking Gregoire Colin make an interesting pair in this 2007 neonoir by writer-director Cedric Anger. Melki plays a frantic, overstretched investment analyst, and Colin is the stringy-haired provincial assassin hired to rub him out. The two meet and strike up a relationship, which throws a wrench into the works; more complications arrive with the hit man's sudden conquest of ravishing Melanie Laurent (a near ringer for 60s actress Francoise Dorleac). Despite a good score by Gregoire Hetzel, a few twists, some high-rise style, and a bit of low-rent substance, this proves no more original than its overused title. In French with subtitles. 91 min.
