SPOTLIGHT

POINT BLANK

Directed by Fred Cavayé
FEATURE NARRATIVE 84 Minutes International Premiere
FILM GUIDE POINT BLANK
Fred Cavayé's heart-pounding thriller stars Gilles Lellouche (also in this year's My Piece of the Pie) as Samuel, a father-to-be forced into a race to save his kidnapped wife, Nadia (Elena Anaya). Training to be a nurse, Samuel saves a man, Sartet (Roschdy Zem), after a brutal motorcycle crash. Unbeknownst to Samuel, Sartet is a career thief and has been put under police surveillance at the hospital. Later, Sartet's cohorts invade Samuel's home, kidnap his wife right in front of him, and knock him out. When he awakes, the phone rings, and he is instructed to break Sartet out of the hospital in exchange for his wife. He successfully does as he's told, and suddenly the unlikely duo is being chased by two groups of police looking to either protect or kill them.

As the two frantically crisscross the streets of Paris, they find themselves running into betrayals and chaotic violence in a race against time. Cavayé propels the adrenaline-inducing action from the first scene and continues it at a breakneck pace—packing the film full of electrifying chase scenes and plenty of twists in the story.
