Watch: Official US Trailer for 'Partisan' Featuring Vincent Cassel
"Rules are important. And without rules, we will become like them." Well Go USA has debuted the official trailer for Partisan, a thriller out of Sundance this year starring Vincent Cassel in one of the lead roles. I actually heard a lot great things about this during the fest from some of my friends, and you can see why with this trailer. Cassel plays a man who raises kids in some kind of colony where he trains them to survive and to kill. The film follows Jeremy Chabriel as Alexander, a boy who begins to think for himself; it also stars Florence Mezzara. This is a hard one to pitch simply in text without inviting you to see footage, but luckily we can do just that. Take a look below, I think a few folks might be very intrigued by this film. Enjoy.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Ariel Kleiman's Partisan, originally from EW.com:
The charismatic Gregori (Cassel) saunters into a hospital maternity ward and charms new mother Susanna. Eleven years later, she and her son Alexander live in Gregori’s closed community, sheltering vulnerable women and their brood in a haven isolated from the outside world. Alexander is Gregori’s prize pupil, eldest son, and star employee in the cottage industry—in which the kids are trained to run dangerous errands to provide for the group—but Gregori feels threatened by the boy’s inquisitive nature, struck by the fear that his child might not love him anymore. Meanwhile, Alexander begins to think for himself. Partisan is directed by Ariel Kleiman, from a screenplay by Ariel Kleiman and Sarah Cyngler. The film first premiered at Sundance earlier this year. Partisan opens in select theaters starting October 2nd.
