See You Up There
Dupontel himself stars as Albert Maillard, an infantryman in the French army battling in the trenches in the last days of WWI. In a horrific turn of events, Albert and fellow soldier Édouard Péricourt (BPM’s Nahuel Pérez Biscayart) are almost buried alive in a mortar explosion, with Édouard gravely disfigured by injury. Returning to civilian life, Édouard crafts elaborate masks to conceal his ruined face and concocts a daring scam with Albert to support themselves in a society that wants to forget the broken, living ghosts of the war: taking advantage of the nation’s hero-worship of the dead by producing phony memorials to sell to French towns. But this is a scheme as dangerous as it is exquisite.
With fantastic performance and lush, spectacular thrills, SEE YOU UP THERE is bravura filmmaking that absolutely should not be missed.
