A bout portant is a very good French thriller. An exciting course of whole 84 minutes, as long as it lasts. This is a wonderfully directed film with a lot of rhythm, action and twists. Scenario has no major flaws while the music follows the theme of the movie perfectly. The actors are fantastic, especially Gilles Lellouche and Roschdy Zem. Gilles Lellouche plays the common man, not a tough guy or someone who is at the moment ready to be hero. In most situations is totally confused, and he just cannot believe that all of this happening to him. Simply, Gilles Lellouche is totally convincing in this role. While on the other hand Roschdy Zem plays the bad guy whom nothing can surprise and in this role is excellent in every situation.

This film fully justifies name and reputation that has Fred Cavayé. A bout portant is a good action thriller that should not be missed.
