    Synopsis


    Partisan
    A young boy, Alexander (Jeremy Chabriel) who is raised to be a hit man in an isolated community begins to develop a moral conscience in this dramatic feature debut from director Ariel Kleiman. Authoritarian community leader Gregori (Vincent Cassel) prepares the children for real killing through rigorous training activities until one day a fellow boy (Alex Balaganskiy) is alarmed by the violent slaughter of a chicken. This savage event awakens Alexander's conscience but his revelation could prove deadly if Gregori discovers the boys beliefs have changed. Cast includes Florence Mezzara, Katlin Hegedusand Sosina Wogayehu. ~ Jennifer Lackman, Rovi

      Ariel Kleiman had only directed a handful of short films before entering the world of international cinema last year with PARTISAN; a strange tale of a secret city in a foreign future perhaps not so far off. Make no mistake: this is NOT a science fiction film. It's almost a dystopian tale, but it centers around the utopian enclave created by the hardened but gentle Gregori (Vincent Cassel) for the raising of children outside the conventional failures of standard society. But it's not all talky politico-babble either, so don't run and hide. A captivating and personal story about coming of age, learning the assassin's trade & discovering, as a child, the hypocrisies of adulthood required to reign & protect. Just watch it.

      Worth a watch for its Artistry but the deep subject matter is never fully thought out and seems a shortcut with its ambiguous storytelling. Much needed background to make it convincing and insightful is never supplied to the viewer and that does this ambitious little Film a disservice.

      Vincent Cassel plays the leader of a cult. His acting is brilliant, and I also recommend watching his other films like 'Mesrine' and 'La Haine'.

      The plot is intriguing and the execution was great. Great characters, great story, and surprisingly good for what little it had.
