Hors la vie (Out of Life)
Patrick (Hippolyte Girardot) is a news photographer in Lebanon who is captured and held hostage by one of the factions fighting in the civil war there. This hostage drama film is unusual in that it attempts to show what motivates the captors, as well as showing the brave attempts of the captive to maintain his dignity in daunting circumstances. Despite the fact that the captors' motives are better portrayed than ordinarily, they are not whitewashed, and Patrick endures a great deal of mental and some physical torture. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
