If you're looking for a pretty sexy-looking foreign action film to see, I suggest that you check out Chrysalis. Now, I'm at a bit of a disadvantage here, since I don't speak French, but I've been working the Google translate, so I'm going to try to fill in as many blanks as I can. Chrysalis is the first feature film by Julien Leclercq, his last project was a short film in 2004 called Transit. According to a french site, it seems that the film is about a European police lieutenant named David Hoffman, who agrees to a new job at his wife is killed. The new work is hunting down a trafficker who's said to be behind a series of murders. And, because it sounds so terribly great without trying to parse it: "When the truth is placed in the middle remembering it, the memory appears an invaluable good, object of all covetousness."

What makes the movie, which will be released in Belgium and France on Halloween, so interesting is it's trailer, which you can see in all sorts of res. It's got that thumping heart beating through the beginning, which switches into drums and then the inevitable, quintessential action movie sound -- the grunt of physical violence. There's also beautiful women, crazy men with guns and some pretty sweet-looking sets. For the French speakers out there, a "making of" video has also been released. Topping off all of these goodies, the website also has a lot of funky pictures and storyboards to boot. But what would be really great if for someone French to speak up about what the full story is.
