A terrified man is talking to the camera and is hiding from shooting outside. “I don’t want that,” he said. “Sorry, Tony.”
In the footage format, we look back at two directors, director Frank (Sebastien Houbani.) Cameraman Thomas (Julien Meuris), who assigned GoPros to the car they were driving.
You are in the south of France fighting in a tough neighborhood for Tony (Abdramane Diacite). A drug gang leader who has just been released from prison.
The rap videos he made from there caught the CEOs’ attention, who had sent Frank to make a music video.
Things immediately get a little misleading when Tony’s sons, including his gang leader. Musa (Mohamed Budu), takes their personal documents with guns.
Then drives off in their cars and gear after Frank and Thomas leave. Suspicious of the two boys who came with these cameras. They threatened the two directors until Tony came. They told his men that they were all right.
Its implied that one of its members are killed the night before. So the situation seems tense between the rival gangs.
Then, as Frank and Thomas follow Tony, a young man rides a motorcycle and fires automatic weapons into the air. None of this has negotiated by Frank.
As they go deeper, Tony and his gang discover that the leader of his rival gang. Steve (Idir Azugli), is trying to get into their weed.
Tony is reluctant to start a gang war, but Musa wants to burn down the opposing gang. Frank and Thomas are increasingly in the middle; Frank tells the recording director who sent him that he has to keep shooting.
He starts to realize how difficult it is and convince him what he’s got. Thomas just wanted to leave.
Our review and verdict about the :
The dealer (real name: Caïd) has a format that matches the recording style found. Ten episodes are short and last 8 to 15 minutes (most episodes are 9 or 10 minutes).
It’s a 90-minute film which is divided into ten parts. This format works for show; Food shooting styles can get a little heavy with larger sizes. So the episodic format allows you to be as small or as large as you want.
It’s very tempting to review this series all at once. As it gives you the decision to stay and go every 10 minutes. This is not a complicated story. We just wanted to know if it was worth following the story on its own.
The first is his troubled vision of a “hood” with people in brightly colored poses. A threatening white director who clearly has no place there. Tony was very aggressive towards Frank and Thomas.
They felt that screenwriters Nicolas Peufaylit, Ange Busterga, and Nicolas Lopez (both also directors). They did little to give his character apart from being the stereotypical bandit.
In fact, Musa got more character development than Tony. When Tony invites the filmmakers to Musa’s mother’s house. Musa had to grapple with the fact that this outsider now knows very little. About his life and knows his mother.
This is too fiction to believe:
We’re with Thomas; We’ll get out of this situation as soon as the bullets start flying. But at some point, Frank goes from being a screaming creative who doesn’t want to be there.
To someone who truly believes that something special will come out when he joins Tony’s gang. This is an unwinnable shift in confidence. But it must exist to sell off that these directors are still around even if a large-scale gang war starts.
An inescapable conclusion can be drawn from the same. When the combination of Tony, Thomas, and Frank – or maybe even all three – ended up dead. But we got about four episodes, and we stopped caring about the fate of any character.
Confused, Frank turns to Thomas as he tries to escape the crossfire and says, “Shit. What’s this?” Mohamed Budu, who played Musa, had the greatest character development and reached deep emotions that no other player could reach. When Tony’s crew told Frank and Thomas they didn’t know the other Tony. We didn’t know if this obviously scary director was kidding or on purpose.
Despite the short form and relatively fast-paced episodes, the dealer was not saying anything new.
