    Costa-Gavras' film excels as a meticulously researched procedural that goes deep into the grime of greed, deception and cynical exploitation. But it is also a wickedly clever character analysis of a man more divided against himself than his preternatural calm suggests.

    Gavras never forces the material into allegorical turf; it's a relatively straightforward look at the ramifications of getting blinded by dollar signs, with perhaps one of the most clearly defined visions of economic depravity since "Wall Street."

    A young exec (Gad Elmaleh) is named CEO of a large French bank and must navigate an array of adversaries, including an American hedge fund headed by Gabriel Byrne. Most of the scenes feature old white men plotting and threatening each other, with an unnecessary side trip to a frustrated erotic attraction. While director Costa-Gavras (best known for "Missing" & "Z") manages to maintain a modicum of interest, this indictment of capitalism lacks much that will anyone doesn't live in that world will care about.
