UNDERRATED: 'Point Blank' (2010)

Part of a remarkable recent run of French thrillers that includes "Tell No One" (2006), this film directed by Fred Cavayé is a taut story of a man pushed to his limit after being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Full of sharp twists at a fat-free 80 minutes, the film gathers steam as a nurse fights to save his pregnant wife from a web of corruption, highlighted by a compassionless turn by Roschdy Zem as a wounded criminal out for answers.
