(Jeremy Chabriel) is an 11-year-old boy raise on a compound, isolated
from the world he and the other kids have been raised to become
assassins. As the oldest kid, he leads the others, that is until one
day he sees the outside world. He begins to question the world, the
rules he was taught and lived by ...and finally the man who raised
him in Ariel Kleiman's Partisan
(Vincent Cassel) was (and is) killer who took in single mothers,
unwanted kids and raise them in order to become killers. He taught
them the rules, how the world works and how to survive, if you don't
want to get hit, hit them first. Alexander is Gregori's oldest and
star pupil, but when he gets a baby brother and discovers kids who
don't convert to Gregori rules disappears over night, is the man who
raise them God or the Devil?
This was like a dark version of
Fagin and his 'kids' in the extreme, a man who raised kids to kill
without question, to protect their 'family' and above all to obey him
because everything he did was for the 'good' of the family. Only
problem with it was what happens when the student becomes more
intelligent than the master? Perhaps what is even more scarier is
the idea of child soldiers aren't that far fetched of an idea when we
think of how many poor mothers/kids are out there, where do all these
kids come from and how is society missed them?
is an Australian film with a multi-national cast trying to do
something different and succeeding, so try it if you want something
different and are interested.
2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is dark, but good, though it
is hard to tell if this is film or HD, but we'll lean HD, while the
DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 mix is equally impressive with some
quiet moments. Surrounds are still consistent throughout. Extras
include interviews and trailers.
