Après un attentat terroriste à Londres, la justice s'empare de l'affaire avec un coupable identifié. il s'agit d'un film sur les imbrications entre la justice, l'espionnage et la politique, voire les puissances économiques.Lire la suite ›
Les diverses manipulations pour cacher un embarrassant secret aux avocats constituent l'essentiel de ce film de procès.
On baigne en pleine théorie du complot (relativement crédible cette fois ci) dans un Londres perpétuellement sous les yeux des caméras de surveillance . L'atmosphère pesante est assez bien rendue par des images tantôt glacées, tantôt sombres.
Dommage que les 2 avocats opposés aient eu une liaison, ce qui nous vaut les rituelles scènes de ménage dans une histoire assez bien ficelée.
Les plus observateurs noteront que dans la toute dernière séquence où (surprise!) les 2 amants se réconcilient, La charmante Rebecca HALL porte d'abord un jean puis un pantalon noir.

Couple of comments: as the movie starts and the opening credits roll, we get dozens of views from the hundreds and thousands of closed circuit TV monitors that litter central London, and my first reaction to that was "who is minding all this information? hello, National Security Agency! but who's watching the NSA?". In that sense, the producers of this movie have been incredibly lucky with the timing of its release as NSA and similar agencies are on the minds of a lot of people, including myself. Second, keep in mind that this is a terrorist/political thriller, and hence that not everything or everyone is what they seem to be. Third, there is not a lot of 'action' in this movie but the movie is paced very tightly and flew by in no time for me.
The screening I saw this at in the theatre here in Cincinnati last night (yes indeed, Thursday is the new Friday in the movie industry) was reasonably well attended. The lucky timing of its release probably had something to do with it, but to be honest, even without the attention in the recent months on the NSA, this still would be a great movie. I enjoyed it much more than I had expected. Bottom line: "Closed Circuit" is well worth checking out, be it in the theatre or on DVD/Blu-ray.
John Crowley (Is Anybody There?) directs Closed Circuit, starring Eric Bana as Martin Rose and Rebecca Hall as Claudia Simmons-Howe. Both Rose and Simmons-Howe, who've had a destructive romantic relationship in the past, take on a high-profile British defendant that allegedly exploded a truck in a public-filled area, killing more than 100 innocent people. However, in the process of looking over the evidence against their defendant, they discover their client might actually be innocent. The incident is a matter of national security, but MI5 is working to keep the detrimental pieces of information a secret and away from the general public. Julia Stiles, Jim Broadbent, and Riz Ahmed also star in supporting roles.
The film opens with several different camera views of the same incident, which focuses on a box truck backing up and then exploding in a crowded, public place. Although the casualty count is revealed to be just over 100 people, the pending court trial for the man blamed for the attack is touted as the biggest trial in British history. While an attack of this magnitude is undoubtedly a big deal, the plot is surely blown way out of proportion - or maybe it wasn't blown out of proportion enough. It's difficult to predict how the news media will handle any given situation in this day and age. Regardless, the story quickly loses its interest and becomes about two individuals, portrayed by Bana and Hall, that couldn't keep their hands off each other, which eventually led to the divorce of Bana's character. Now, Bana and Hall's characters don't get along at all - and are both about to be vital participants in the defense of the accused bomber.
One minute this film is about an explosion, then a relationship, and eventually about procedural matters as they pertain to the British court - and finally the government. It's not that the British parliamentary process isn't interesting. However, it absolutely doesn't sit well in this film. For anyone outside of England (and that's quite a bit of moviegoers), this will all feel very foreign - frankly, because it is just that. The parliamentary court scenes are far different than a typical court trial in the Unites States, but they don't especially play a vital role in this film, other than one particular scene where Hall's character reveals who she believes is really to blame for the bombing. In any event, these scenes contribute to a film that feels mostly off kilter, unorganized, and far too busy for its own good.
Closed Circuit's titled obviously refers to the constant video surveillance taking place in nearly every single scene of this film. It's truly a wonder how anyone has privacy - but that's one of the points being made in this film. There is no privacy - not from the government. With cameras constantly watching these characters, they quickly become overly paranoid believing someone is out to get them. And, they're not entirely wrong. However, by the time the "bad guys" are revealed, the film's ending is basically wrapped up in a nice big pretty red bow that nearly everyone will see coming - thus taking the "thrilling" portion out of the thriller.
Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall are two rather well-known names, both having their own semi-popular roles over the short tenure of their careers. Sadly, neither one of these typically enjoyable actors fulfill their potential with their roles. Their chemistry is hardly interesting, stale - causing for a seriously dull relationship. These two should either love or hate each other, or at least love to hate each other, but neither really gives any indication where their heart really lies. They focus on exposing secret details that will have them in more hot water than they desire, knowing full well that they've both lied and essentially brought all of these issues upon themselves. It's a vicious web of boredom. And, despite the fact that the supporting cast is just as stale as the main cast, it was still nice to see Julia Stiles - even though it was for only a few brief, predicable scenes.
Overall, Closed Circuit attempts to be a terror-based mystery film with a general message that the good of the state is far more important than the good of the people. However, the plot lacks a big reveal, having spent it long before the film's climax. The film's initial plot looked promising, but was poorly executed, leaving little room for excitement. Stars Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall desperately try to hold your attention, only to fail miserably in the long run. If your heart is dead set on watching this film, give it a try - as long as you keep in mind that you're giving your time to an unsatisfactory endeavor that will, in the end, unquestionably have you uttering, "I totally saw all of that coming."
With a tightly crafted screenplay by Steven Knight ("Amazing Grace") and capably led by award-winning director John Crowley ("Boy A") this cynical view of international terrorism left me so paranoid I suspected every person on screen with the possible exception of the Queen.
Here are the players:
* Eric Bana ("Munich") is a divorced barrister assigned to take over a case from a colleague who has committed suicide.
* Rebecca Hall ("Iron Man 3") has been assigned the defense of the accused terrorist. BTW, she's the worst thing that ever happened to our divorced barrister.
* Ciarán Hinds ("In Bruges") is a reassuring sounding board for our hero, who has become more and more alarmed as he delves ever deeper into the case.
* Jim Broadbent ("Cloud Atlas") is the Attorney General who reassures us that everything the government does MUST be transparent to its citizens; THAT is how a democracy WORKS.
* Julia Stiles ("The Silver Linings Playbook") is an American journalist who began digging into the case long before our hero, so she is very well informed.
* Denis Moschitto (Lots of TV) is the accused terrorist. Problem is, for some reason the case is so sensitive he isn't allowed to see the charges against him. He is profane, angry and frightened. (And his son is in jeopardy!)
Because so much of this plot revolves around the monitoring devices, we feel that everyone is under surveillance but no one is safe. This R-rated thriller is exciting, tense, and funny in places but has no sweaty bodies or gunshots. You'll come out jarred by a couple of plot holes, but in my opinion Bana can carry any movie. If you have hearing problems, wait and get your DVD from Amazon or find a theater with closed captions.
A high-profile terrorism case involving an alleged Turkish terrorist Farroukh Erdogan (Denis Moschitto) who sets off a major bomb in central London, killing scores of people unexpectedly binds together two ex-lovers Martin (Eric Bana) and Claudia (Rebecca Hall) on divisive sides of the defense team - testing the limits of their loyalties and placing their lives in jeopardy. The cast of characters on both sides of the Turkish terrorist plot are polished and conniving and include Ciarán Hinds, Jim Broadbent, Anne-Marie Duff, Julia Stiles (the sole American in the mêlée), Riz Ahmed, Kenneth Cranham, to name a few excellent performances.
The use of multiple screens throughout the film not only enhances the plot but also laces a magnifying glass on the techniques of the security measures that affect us all. This is a fast moving, tense, credible movie that carries far more importance than the story it tells. Well worth watching, especially in view of the increasing exposure of understanding terrorism thanks to the presence of television series such as Homeland, Person of Interest, Strike Back et al.
