à l’Aveugle * Xavier Palud (2012)

Posted in crime on by .

“à l’Aveugle” starts as a serial killer horror/thriller, but fortunately quickly develops to a crime film. The troubled police officer Lassalle investigates seemingly unrelated brutal murders together with his young protege Héloïse. Soon his suspision falls on the blind man (from the title) Narvik (Lambert Wilson, the Merovignian from “The Matrix” films). This Narvik is an unlikely candidate so Lassalle’s superior find his accusations a bad idea. The typical story unfolds in which Lassalle and Narvik compete. Then the story gets a few twists (and a couple of unlikely elements) and “A Blind Man” becomes a rather typical, but not too bad, crime film.
