This grim French/Georgian thriller (already slated for an American remake) boasts a great premise. A poor odd-jobber (George Babluani, brother of first-time director Géla Babluani) overhears a conversation implying that his current employer is about to make a lot of money though some shady, ill-defined job. When the boss abruptly dies, our protagonist steals his mysterious "instructions" and soon finds himself stuck in a nightmarish survival game involving rich gamblers and doomed players. The film is very rough-edged, but it's exciting stuff. In French with English subtitles. 86 minutes R.
