Film Review

I saw this a few years back when it hit the cinema in France and thought that overall it was not a bad attempt at a Gothic horror/thriller (a genre I like). Initially I found the digital footage a little off putting but settled into the "look" eventually and ended up really liking it. So, OK, it's not high art French cinema but surely that's not a reason to dislike it? I have to say I was surprised to find so many reviews here because I heard nothing of this movie after the French release, which surprised me (especially as that movie Brotherhood of the Wolf was doing the rounds, which I thought was a pile of s**t in comparison). Also, 28 Days Later appeared not long after this, touting a similar digital look (but i thought that movie seriously sucked also). In conclusion, if, like me, you disliked the movies mentioned, maybe you will like Vidocq. I think, that in time, it will possibly gain cult status . What do you think?

Along with "Le pacte des Loups", "Vidocq" can be spotted as the beginning of a french invasion in horror and fantastic genre. Viewing it 6 years after its first presentation on-screen, when French cinema has now produced such chillers as Haute Tension or L'intérieur, its easy to be impressed with the path the genre seems to follow in this most improbable country… Although Horror french movies are not ALL good, "Vidocq" is a prime example of a good and original piece of work coming from Moliere's land (and you should also pay close attention to the other movies named above…).While the story behind this gorgeous movie (every single frame is a "tableau") is pretty simple, there is much to love in this flick. All actors are quite good and every single characters is so well defined that, even with few words, the viewers can be delighted with their playing (Dussolier is especially good…). Costumes and settings are part of the fun …

One thing to be said about Vidocq is, that Pitof has managed to made visually rather neat flick, even thought it’s very visible, that the budget of the film wasn’t extremely huge, as some of the CGI effects are very clearly just effects.Plot isn’t that bad either: Vidocq (Gerard Depardieu) is hunting notorious murderer called The Alchemist. Vidocq then disappears, but his biographer Boisset (Guillaume Canet) begins his quest to find him.As for characters go, Alchemist is actually rather effective boogie man, even thought the movie itself clearly is tilted towards action than horror. That is the biggest problem of the movie: besides the action it really has very little to offer.Watch it for it’s action scenes, not to get scared.
