Piss & Vinegar #013: Dobermann


From the animated opening title sequence to Dobermann, the breezy Jan Kounen/Joël Houssin caper movie with Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci.

If you’ve not seen it, give it a go – it’s got big guns, big bangs, ultraviolence, bent cops and amoral gangsters. Along with things like the Taxi series, Banlieue 13 and Nid De Guêpes it demonstrates that French film is not just about moody middle class chamber pieces, that yer Gallic camerajockeys are more than capable of outharvesting the Hollywood action blockbuster plums in their own orchards when they put their minds to it.
