A grim tale but very strong storyline
Once upon a time there was a film made about Gandhi who insofar as I remember was Indian. They used a British Jewish actor to play Gandhi. I still wonder why? No Indians available?
Then later on and before that they would make cowboy movies with white actors painted to look like Braves. Here in these Woke years they use actor Sofiane to play a character called Pascal which may seem a bit odd to some viewers; did they run out of Frenchmen who are not French Arabs? It seems unnecessary to me but anyway he does a great job here as the Baddie of the piece.
As regards the other main protagonist her acting is okay here only during the bar scene with the secondary love interest does she giggle a tad like a brainless model; the rest of the time she is really quite adequate even very good at times. The other acting folks here are all pretty good not stellar But pretty good.
The tale here is a total grim fest. Both main characters have childhoods that would make Dickens and Eugène Sue blush and they tell you about them. The activity they are engaged in is to a sane person so crazy that it beggars belief.
I remember the film Le grand bleu (1988) from years ago (Luc Besson 1988) and this was excellent (free diving is huge in France) ; here we have what it has come to now an exaggeration a crazy hyperbolic take on free diving full of technology machines and pushing the human body to a place where it can only die.
Trying to produce no spoilers here but it does not end well surprisingly. Do not watch this film if you want something to cheer up this will not tick that box. Also it is intimated that something of the same nature happened in real time to a real female diver in The Dominican Republic; maybe just an homage; probably not a cut-and-paste
To summarise it is very adequate film well-made the acting I would rate at 75% of what it could have been; but whichever way you cut this the storyline is strong and that is a very crucial component of any movie…
PS so i went and watched Le grand bleu (1988) again after all these years and that too was not a tale of joy either …. I had forgotten the ending probably just remembered the cuddly dolphs and gorgeous curves of Rosanna …. but yes in a way “Sous Emprise” is just an amped version in the more accelerated and cruel world of 2022 …. I remembered Le grand bleu (1988) as chipper chirpier … but noooooo it sure was not.
No pun intended – you’ll know if you watch the movie. Sometimes it is something that can never entirely be earned. Think about it – if you slept with someone (well that is putting the quick and passionate love making session mildly) who at the time was with someone else … could you really trust that person? And to what degree would that trust go? Don’t get me wrong that is not the “theme” itself the movie really puts in front of us.
It is about a woman who tries to find her way – and her purpose. And that purpose is not a man. Though that man does help her achieve her dreams and goals. But he is also dragging her down (sorry for the pun). There is more than meets the eye here and even more below the surface (again sorry for the pun).
And while the movie is also about love, most of it happens fully clothed – still apart from one scene baring it all, it is filled with passion and sounds that might make you feel uncomfortable. Everyone perceives things differently. But it is important that we see the passion, that we understand how deep (sorry) their love goes. Because only then we understand the full scope of the feelings that are being shared – one way or another.
Apparently based on a real story, though I am certain there have been taken creative licences – even with the ending you ask? I can’t say – I might take a look one of these days … still quite mesmerizing the way it is told.
