The Bait aka L'Appāt
Running time: 115 minutes
Directed by: Bertrand Tavernier
Starring: Marie Gillain
IMDB rating: 6.9
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112387/

The Bait is about a young woman, her boyfriend, and his best friend, who all live together. The two men don't have jobs, and spend a lot of their time watching American action movies and talking about how they'll create a successful business in the future.

They decide that, in order to get the money needed to go to the US and start up a company, they will rob the homes of wealthy people.

The plan is that she (the attractive Marie Gillian) will set up a date with rich men that she has met, go back to their place, and then the other two will creep in and steal his money. Things don't go to plan pretty much from the off. Their planning has a lot of flaws and things quickly go wrong.

The key theme of this film is the abdication of responsiibility. The two men seem to feel that their family should be sharing more of their money with them, and look at films like Scarface for inspiration. They talk of how they'll move to America, because of the belief that it will be easier to exploit workers and avoid tactics. The girl doesn't seem to feel that she is responsible for her actions, and seemingly for the crimes they are planning to commit.

I liked The Bait. It was interesting, had a point to it, and not to sound too shallow but I enjoyed looking at the lead actress. The main film it reminded me of was Dog Day Afternoon, which is no bad thing.

7/10
