Little Paradise full movie review - Watching it felt good, just like any feel-good-movie should.
somewhere in an unspecified desert village a couple petty crooks and drop outs encounter each other by a twist of fate in a run-down motel called "le petit paradis".
everybody tries to make the best out of their lives, be it by stealing at their job, dealing with drugs, prostitution or contract killing. but when many suspect people behave suspiciously around each other things are meant to become complicated.
a very atmospheric movie with a great buildup, if somewhat slow, but it definitely has a good payoff. the style it was made, the dream sequences and the cuts resemble a funny "once upon a time in the west" in a modern setting and with a story very likely to be happening right now somewhere.
the trailer promises a more silly film and overall a less serious tone, but i'm happy they went this way for the feeling of really being in a deserted place where this very motel is the only one in a 100 km radius.
