Violent Days | Chicago Reader

Violent Days

Four disaffected and economically marginal French people—three guys and the often mistreated girlfriend of one of them—drive to Le Havre for a rockabilly festival in this 2004 feature. First-time director Lucile Chaufour juxtaposes intense but stilted performances of songs with fights at the entrance to the concert, and her black-and-white cinema verite close-ups of the characters reflect how hopelessly they're trapped in their world. This makes their aimless and alienated lives vivid, but they're not pleasant characters to spend time with. In French with subtitles. 104 min.
