A Few Days in September (15)

Reviewed by Anthony Quinn

Published 14/09/2007

Blurry photography matches a blurry plot in this French drama about a secret agent (Juliette Binoche) who escorts the son and daughter of an old associate to an assignation in Venice.









They are pursued there by a poetry-quoting hit-man (John Turturro) who's always on the phone to his shrink. It is set in the week leading up to September 11, though writer-director Santiago Amigorena refuses to establish the nature of the link between Binoche's mission and the forthcoming catastrophe. It is enigmatic, but in a languidly self-important way; a pillow-fight is about as energetic as it gets.
