Requiem For A Killer - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
ACCLAIMED French hit-woman thriller Requiem For A Killer will be released on DVD on Monday, July 2, 2012.
On the eve of retirement she finds herself forced to take on a highly difficult contract in the heart of the Swiss Alps by her main client (Tcheky Karyo: Special Forces).
Posing as a soprano, Lucrèce will have to perform on stage at the highly prestigious Festival D’Ermeux and try to kill one of her partners: British baritone Alexander Child (Christopher Stills).
Child owns a tract of land desperately wanted by a British oil firm. He remains the only obstacle to a strategic pipeline project with considerable economic potential, and so needs to be eliminated.
To complicate the contract even more, French counter-intelligence learns of the hit and sends Rico (Clovis Cornillac: A Very Long Engagement, Asterix at the Olympic Games), a reinstated former agent, to infiltrate the orchestra, unmask and terminate the potential assassin.
To the rhythm of Handel’s sublime Mass, a gripping three-way chase ensues as Lucrece’s contract is revoked after a failed attempt to kill Child and a further killer enters the mix to eliminate both her and the original target.
The directorial debut for Jérôme Le Gris, Requiem For A Killer is a poised assassination thriller loaded with high heels and high tension.
