Scribe

  • 1h 28min
  • Directed by: Thomas Kruithof
  • Cast: François Cluzet, Denis Podalydès, Sami Bouajila

The unemployed Duval is contacted by a mysterious organisation to transcribe intercepted calls. He accepts the job with no suspicions, since it restores stability to his life, but it will soon result in political shenanigans of all kinds. Respectable if overly derivative, Scribe has a slick-enough veneer, yet its retro stylings feel a little forced.
