Just looking up this film on IMDb, I learned that they're remaking this film. Absolutely horrible idea. There is no way, that the Americanized version of this can do it any justice. At least they did the right thing in hiring director Géla Babluani back. But even that is no guarantee it'll turn out well, see the American version of The Vanishing for an example. I just don't see how you can take an indie-French film, with an unknown cast, shot in harsh black & white and turn it into something the masses will want to see.

I'm getting off the point. I wanted to write about this brilliant little film. Young Sebastion is working as a painter when the man he's working for dies mysteriously. He stumbles upon an even more mysterious envelope that promises riches for an unknown task. He follows the clues until he comes to an abandoned farmhouse where a group of rich men are betting upon a sick game of Russian Roulette. With no other choice Sebastion is thrown into the game.

It's a tense, sick ride from there. Brilliant in its minimalist style. It's one of those wonderful ideas that works best on no budget. I wish I'd thought of it first.
