Second Wind (Le Deuxieme Souffle)

Dir: Alain Corneau. France 2007. 148 mins. Second Wind is an ultra-stylised, garishly-tinted retro genre exercise that rambles on for two and a half hours without ever answering the question of why we need another version of Jose Giovanni's gritty novel about honour among thieves, which was inspired by the late author's own criminal career and stint in jail.
