Film Noir (2007)

Film details


Animation, film noir. When L.A. private detective Sam Ruben opens his eyes, regaining consciousness, he finds himself in a car park. Nearby, there is a car with a dead cop lying next to it, and next to the cop, a gun. Judging by the way it fits the holster he's wearing, it looks like he is the killer. Only he cannot remember a damned thing - how he got there, what happened, who he is. Ruben gets into the dead cop's car and so begins a night to remember on the dark streets of L.A. where between sex, guns and voice-over, an identity lies waiting to be found.
