13 Tzameti - 2005
Sebastian, a young man, has decided to follow instructions intended for someone else, without knowing where they will take him. Something else he does not know is that Gerard Dorez, a cop on a knife-edge, is tailing him. When he reaches his destination, Sebastian falls into a degenerate, clandestine world of mental chaos behind closed doors in which men gamble on the lives of others men. It's a black and white sadistic journey through the misery of men. The protagonist, an immigrant twenty year old guy, struggles to survive and works fixing a roof, when the owner of the house he's working at dies of overdose he gets to know that he's not going to be paid and decides to replace the man in a mysterious job outside town. He finds himself involved in a whirl of violence that will take away from him any form of innocence. There's little in the opening 30 minutes plus change of Tzameti (Georgian for "13") that gives any indication of the vicious little pressure cooker it becomes in its second half. Géla Babluani's low-budget, grimy black-and-white film begins as if it were another slow-paced, observational study of immigrant life, as a young Georgian, Sebastien (George Babluani) labours on the roof of a reclusive morphine addict Godon (Passon). We see Sebastien's family eking out an impoverished existence in France, in contrast to the ailing Godon's relative opulence. Then, suddenly, Godon dies; before Sebastien gets paid, but not prior to him overhearing a conversation that suggests a lucrative pay-off. Emboldened by his circumstances, Sebastien follows the instructions meant for his erstwhile boss and shows up at a rendezvous pretending to be him. For Tzameti to have its maximum impact, you should really stop reading here. The film's marketing people, though, have chosen to enlighten potential audiences further, so it's apparently acceptable to divulge that Sebastien has unknowingly signed himself up into a clandestine cabal of men who meet at secluded locations to bet on a multiple person game of Russian roulette. Sebastien has no choice but to take part, as Player No 13. And they say it's an unlucky number.
