No Rest For The Brave (Widescreen) (Region 1) - Guiraudie, Alain
Releasedatum: 19 april 2005
Take a coming-of-age story, douse it in French existentialism, mix in plenty of wit, spice it liberally with vivid imagery, and the refreshingly original No Rest for the Brave is what you'd get. A scintillating metaphysical tale, the film follows the picaresque adventures of Basile, an angst-ridden French teenager who is convinced that he will die if he falls asleep. This leads him on a road trip that becomes a hallucinatory odyssey as Basile encounters murder, sex and intrigue — assuming that some or all of it isn't a dream. Whether Basile's excursion is reality or fantasy, innocent or malevolent, grand ideas mesh with bizarre occurrences to create a fascinating, surreal journey of discovery, chance and mystery.
