The theater was packed and the crowd was agitated.
Gregoire Colin, the actor in the movie Le tueur, came to meet Fantasias public for the North-American premiere of the film. This French film noir, who according to some, bring back to mind Jean-Pierre Melville (Le samurai and Le cercle rouge) creates expectations. The theater was packed and the crowd was agitated. But, when faced by the quality of the movie, the actors unfailing performance, and the incredible aesthetics, this first full-length feature film from Cedric Anger, and his first screenplay since Le petit lieutenant, we can affirm that success was achieved. Gregoire Colin came to answer the publics questions.
