Interesting (French) Canadian film
, 14 Mar 2007
This is a standard 'small-man-against-the Mob' film infused with a certain joie-de-vivre. Treat Williams plays the co-owner of a small brewery who suffers a heart attack and discovers, upon his recovery, that his brother has allowed Saul Rubinek (playing a villain with deliciously understated relish) to embezel $120million from his firm. When Mr Williams refuses to roll over and die with the firm, it's left to him and a small band of friends (including his ballsy wife, Kim Cattrall and Carroll O'Connor, playing equally ballsy retired cop 'Balls' O'Malley) to foil dastardly Rubinek and save the day. The Gallic Canadian influence on this film is plain to see and makes the film more enjoyable. Worth a viewing.
