STORY DESCRIPTION:

Pierre Tardieu is a part-time worker living in an old house with his sick father. No one is aware of his existence. Pierre is a serial killer. His victims are ordinary people with ordinary lives. Men and women living, working and suffering side by side but never really together, forming a crowd lost in a big city. Cruel is the story of a man who has grown up poorly, of a woman who could have saved him and of a city that is an invisible prison. Cruel is a film noir but above all, there is a dialogue from William Holden in The Wild Bunch by Sam Peckinpah, which is the soul of the film: "We all want to be children again, even the worst of us ... especially the worst of us". This is really where was born Cruel, with its character of melancholic serial killer, pursued by the child he once was.





Pierre Tardieu è un lavoratore part time che vive in una vecchia casa insieme al padre malato. Nessuno sembra accorgersi della sua esistenza ma Pierre è in realtà un serial killer, le cui vittime sono persone comuni dalla vita ordinaria: uomini e donne che vivono, lavorano e soffrono fianco a fianco nella grande città. “Cruel” è un film noir ma include anche l’importante dialogo tratto da “The Wild Bunch” di Sam Peckinpah, che è l’anima del film: “Tutti vogliamo essere bambini di nuovo, perfino i peggiori di noi…soprattutto i peggiori di noi”. Da qui è nato “Cruel”, con il suo personaggio del serial killer malinconico perseguitato dal bambino che era un tempo.
