Marins Perdus, Les (2003, FRA) C-107m. ** D: Claire Devers. Starring Bernard Giraudeau, Miki Manojlovic, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Marie Trintignant, Audrey Tautou, Darry Cowl. After their boss goes broke, the crewmembers aboard a freighter abandon ship. Only three men stay behind, with a rather depressine outlook. Moody drama is heavy-going most of the way; saved by a stylish approach and good performances. Based on the novel by Jean-Claude Izzo. English title: LOST SEAMEN.
