Trilogy 1: On the Run

(France/Belgium, 2002, 113 minutes)

A terrorist in prison for 15 years escapes, but finds out time has passed him by and none of his old colleagues is willing to help him. One of three interconnected films written and directed by Lucas Belvaux starring the same set of characters; each film is in a different genre, its lead characters becoming supporting characters in the other two films. This one is a dense character study disguised as stylized noir thriller.
