4º – A Simple Plan (Sam Raimi, 1998)Three men discover a large amount of money in a plane that collided in the middle of a forest, leaving no survivors. The three make a pact and decide to keep the money under some basic rules so as not to arouse suspicion. However, the figure of greed comes on the scene and puts the lives of all involved at risk. Using the cold as an active part of the plot, ‘A Simple Plan’ shows how money corrupts certain bonds, eventually destroying entire lives.
3º – Le samouraï (Jean-Pierre Melville, 1967)We will follow the day to day life of a perfectionist rent killer, understanding more about his usual model of governing his profession and his private life. The film gains its substance when he makes a mistake in one of his services, seeing, little by little, everything he had built fall to the ground. ‘The Samurai’ brings the story of an individual with his own model of seeing the instances of the world, not letting external social forces dictate his way. Masterpiece by Jean-Pierre Melville.
