(February 6, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) – “The Great Game,” Writer/Director Nicolas Pariser’s acclaimed debut thriller will open February 14, 2017 on all major VOD platforms in the United States, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Comcast, Charter, and Vudu from Distrib Films US. “The Great Game” stars Cesar Nominee Melivil Poupard (“Laurence Always”), André Dussollier (“Tell No One”) and Clémence Poésy (“127 Hours”) in elegant, absorbing political thriller, where the game is misdirection and deception in which key players follow Nietsche’s advice, “Whatever is profound loves masks.”
Ostensible puppet master (Dussollier, outstanding) is the affable white-haired gentleman named Joseph Paskin. He casually approaches the sullen Pierre Blum (Poupard, in a riveting performance) outside a French casino. Joseph pretends not to recognize the 40-ish all-but-forgotten novelist, though time will soon reveal that there are no coincidences where Paskin’s character is concerned.
“The Great Game.” Nicolas Pariser’s debut feature is a terrific, beautifully rendered thriller that makes much use of its stellar cast, (including the beatific, impressive Poésy), but particularly with the brittle, uneasy rapport between Poupaud and Dussollier, a resourceful and protean actor who commits to his character’s malevolence with relish. “The Great Game” is a superlative illustration of the cinematic political thriller.
