Not that you should need any more incentive to see Vincent Cassel in the Sundance World Cinema Dramatic Cinematography award winner “Partisan,” but the actor just bagged the juicy villain role in ‘Bourne 5.’ Before that movie hits, you can see him dominate the screen in “Partisan,” and the new trailer has arrived.
Directed by Ariel Kleiman, and co-starring Jeremy Chabriel, the story follows a cult leader who trains children to be killers, and sees it through the eyes of Alexander, one of the young boys who begins to question his upbringing. It’s a film that impressed us when we finally caught up with it at Karlovy Vary, with Jessica Kiang writing in her review that “it is slow and it is ambiguous but it is supremely sure of itself, as it moves, with singleminded grace from chilly to all-out chilling.” Sounds right up our alley.
“Partisan” opens on October 2nd. Watch below.
