Thriller "13 Tzameti" Opens In NYC Tomorrow

13 Tzameti

I am so jealous!! Tomorrow the much talked about thriller "13 Tzameti" opens in New York City.

Dear god, why can't it open in other major cities too? Pretty please? No? Argh.

Directed and written by Gela Babluani, "13" took home Best First Feature Film at the 2005 Venice Festival and won the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema at the 2006 Sundance Festival.

The gritty black and white film revolves around twenty-two-year-old Sebastien (played by Georges Babluani), an impoverished man from an immigrant family, who decides to intercept a package which contains instructions intended for someone else without knowing where they will take him. When he reaches his destination, Sebastian falls into a degenerate, clandestine world in which men gamble on the lives of others men playing a high stakes tournament of Russian roulette.

If that plot synopsis didn't grab you, then you MUST watch the trailer. It will.

Between that trailer and all the buzz, how could any fan of thrillers or gritty horror films resist?

If it were playing at a theater near me, I'd surely go. Hopefully it'll have a good turn-out in NYC and will get wider distribution soon. Did you hear that New York? Go see this film! -- Shannon Nolley
