  • Originaltitel: Frères ennemis
  • Nordisk Premiär

Matthias Schoenaerts och Reda Kateb spelar barndomsvännerna från förorten som hamnat på varsin sida om lagen, i kraftfullt gangsterdrama med stort hjärta.

Manu (Schoenaerts, Bullhead, Rust and Bone,) och Driss (Kateb, Django, Zero Dark Thirty) var som bröder när de växte upp, men när Manus största deal går katastrofalt fel med dödliga konsekvenser blir det Driss, numera polis, som måste utreda härvan av droger, karteller och mord i sina gamla kvarter. David Oelhoffens (Far From Men, GFF 2015) nerviga och imponerande krimdrama kretsar mindre kring rätt och fel i laglig mening, än kring familjeband, brödraskap och skyldigheter mot dem som alltid stått en nära. Close Enemies är både ett socialt engagerat drama från utanförskapets Parisförorter, och en väldigt spännande thriller.

Regissör: David Oelhoffen

The French film director and screenwriter David Oelhoffen was born in 1968. His debut feature 'In Your Wake' premiered in the International Critics' Week of the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. His next film was 'Far from Men' (2014), which is based on the short story 'The Guest' ('L'hôte') by french writer Albert Camus and stars Viggo Mortensen and Reda Kateb. The film played in competition at the 71st Venice International Film Festival where it won three awards.

I have a lawyer friend who had quite important drug traffickers among her clients. I thought it would be interesting to meet them to try and understand how their lives were organized concretely. Most agreed to talk to me. It turned out the gap between how we usually fathom criminal life and what it’s really like was huge. There are a lot of expectations, a lot of fear and little romanticism. It made me want to see this same reality from the “opposite side”, within the police. The project was born. At that time, I was offered to co-write L’AFFAIRE SK1, a movie directed by Frédéric Tellier about Guy Georges, the first serial killer to ever be identified in France. This co-writing allowed me to broaden my knowledge about the institution. To understand what this profession meant. And to forge unexpected links. So I had quite a unique documentation from both sides of the fence of drug trafficking and I started to build a story on that theme.
