La Flamme Rouge (2021)


Ex-cycling champion is having a bad night. Money is owed, his fiancé maybe cheating and people are dying. Will he survive the night.

The real answer is will anyone have any idea what the hell is going on? Probably not.

Desperate attempt at neo-noir film goes nowhere fast as the Maze Brothers (they wrote and directed) put the game cast through their paces but fail to explain anything at any point. There is never a really clear explanation of anything only that there is something about money, and cheating and I don't knw what. Seriously I was half an hour into the film when I stopped it and restarted it because I had no idea what was going on. I figured that I missed some revelation but nope this film really doesn't explain anything and it just gets more convoluted as it goes.

This is a mess that is best just swept up and dumped.
