L'Agression  [DVD]Jean-Louis Trintignant (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 101 min
A French motorcycle picture which, though based on John Buell's novel The Shrewsdale Exit, transcends the limitations of imitating the American genre, and offers in its place a
sustained attack on French middle class values.
Trintignant goes on a trail of revenge after the rape and murder of his wife and daughter; bourgeois dream disintegrates into nightmare, but
the seeds of destruction are shown to be internal.
Deneuve, as Trintignant's sister-in-law, provides the film's emotional core with a fine performance, her presence questioning male
assumptions, even when her lines don't.
