‘Fifty Pence’ is the story Darren (a keen gambler) who finds himself at the orders the Parisian Mafia after a heavy loss. His first assignment is to escort an unknown woman (Karina) to their dodgy hideout for unknown reasons. These events form the lead up to the beginning of the film where we see Darren’s struggle to come to terms with his situation and a bond between him and Karina. Fifty Pence was written and directed by Eric Kolelas, more after the break.

Fifty Pence is very well shot; I love how well they used camera angles to create the atmospheric vibe- the music also contributes to this. I also liked how we never hear Karina speak throughout the film; it really communicated how powerless she was. Anyways I think it’s time to watch the film now, it’s below.
