See How They Fall
Aging petty criminal Marx (Jean-Louis Trintignant) agrees to mentor the enthusiastic young wannabe Johnny (Mathieu Kassovitz), who worships the older thief and gambler with puppy-like devotion. In a parallel story, middle-aged sales rep Simon (Jean Yanne) vows revenge when his closest friend, a policeman named Mickey (Yvon Back), falls into a coma after being shot in what appears to be a gangland-style hit job. Writer-director Jacques Audiard merges the two story lines as the film proceeds.
