FEW DAYS IN SEPTEMBER, A

Italy / France / Portugal, (MIFF 2007, Jaguar International Panorama)

Director: Santiago Amigorena

FEW DAYS IN SEPTEMBER, A

“[Juliet] Binoche is charmingly convincing as a sophisticated French female James Bond who speaks several languages, is handy with an automatic and has kept a pet turtle longer than she keeps her men.” - Hollywood Reporter A secret service agent finds herself attempting to reunite one of her former co-workers, Elliot (Nick Nolte), with his teenage children before he heads permanently underground. A cat-and-mouse game develops as it becomes clear that someone wants Elliot killed, made apparent by a hit man (John Tuturro) who prowls around Elliot's apartment. Prolific screenwriter Santiago Amigorena jumps in the director's chair for the first time with this high-octane spy thriller featuring A-grade performances from its cast. “As the plot moves towards its conclusion, September 11 approaches. The result is something entirely surprising.” - Toronto Film Festival
