No Fear, No Die

Wednesday, November 17

“From the director of the acclaimed Chocolat, this is something else entirely: rough-edged almost to the point of being documentary, it’s a look at the world of cockfighting in the Paris suburbs, with de Bankolé as an African lovingly guiding his feathered charges through a casual daily bloodletting… it has a seedy, claustrophobic power that says as much about human as about animal exploitation. Wenders protégée Dommartin lends a largely decorative presence, but New Wave veteran Brialy stands out as a slimeball entrepreneur. Abdullah Ibrahim again provides broody, pacy music.” – Time Out (London)
