Jacques Audiard's dishevelled remake of Fingers improves on James Toback's all-thumbs rendition. Not hard to do. The unglittering star, Romain Duris, is ugly-handsome in the Belmondo mold, his teeth barely fitting into his mouth; and he manages to make the protagonist — a man torn between a life of petty crime and a life of classical piano, between the influences of his father and mother, between the masculine and the feminine — seem as sympathetic as he is ridiculous. Not easy to do. With Niels Arestrup, Jonathan Zaccaï, Aure Atika, and Emmanuelle Devos. 2005.
