9 doigts: Directed by F.J. Ossang. With Paul Hamy, Luc Catania, Damien Bonnard, Lionel Tua. Magloire starts running with no luggage and no future until he meets a dying man from whom he inherits a fortune. Subsequently, Magloire is chased by a gang and becomes not only their hostage, but also their accomplice.

“With elements of u0026quot;Kiss Me Deadlyu0026quot; and Lars von Trieru0026#39;s u0026quot;Europau0026quot; and a lot else inbetween this decidely daft film is a kind of Kafkaesque u0026#39;thrilleru0026#39; minus the thrills. It won its director, F.J. Ossang, the best direction prize at Locarno though I have no idea what the competition was. It certainly looks the part even if it doesnu0026#39;t make a lot of sense; this is an art-house movie for smart kids who like this sort of thing. You could say itu0026#39;s very u0026#39;Frenchu0026#39;. Donu0026#39;t get me wrong, I didnu0026#39;t dislike it. I was actually rather bemused by it. Ossang is undoubtedly a skilled film-maker but heu0026#39;s also an acquired taste.”
