No Fear, No Die

1991 • dir Claire Denis w/Isaach de Bankolé, Alex Descas, Jean-Claude Brialy, Solveig Dommartin • 90 min • 35mm

In NO FEAR, NO DIE, Denis casts two of her favorite actors (Descas and de Bankolé) as a pair of black immigrant friends in France who raise and train roosters for an underground cockfighting ring. Unsurprisingly, the relationship between these two men and their business partner (Brialy) who runs the restaurant where the fights are held becomes a reflection of the contest within the ring as well as a microcosm of the larger world outside.
