Over the last few years I've come to be of the mind that a project Vincent Cassel stars in is always worth a peek. They're not all great but Cassel is always great in them and there's great entertainment and insight to be had from watching an actor of Cassel's prowess fully embody a role – which he seems to do regardless of how large or small.

In Partisan, one of a number of movies he is starring in slated for release this year, Cassel plays a charismatic cult leader who charms women and children to move into his commune where they are then shut away from the rest of the world.

An Australian production from the folks behind Snowtown, the movie is directed by first time feature director Ariel Kleiman, a young director with a couple of awards under his belt for his short works, and along with Cassel, stars another French import, newcomer Jeremy Chabriel.

It's a beautiful trailer and one that suggests at nasty things about to unfold. After all, there's only so much power one man can exact over a large community of people before one of them rebels. In this case, it looks like the rebel is a young boy.
