Pascal Payant has followed up his incredible 2015 effort, 'On the Horizon' with a bold take on the mystery drama 'genre'. I put 'genre' in inverted commas because, to be frank, boiling it down to a genre film would be doing it a disservice as Payant seems to pull from a variety of inspired sources. With the pervading stylistic atmosphere that Payant is so damn well good at, 'Stolen Season' somehow manages to boast the same sense of urgency and vitality of your best thrillers and the ever-twisting story of a great mystery, without sacrificing raw ans honest performances. A+++ Highly recommend. Great watch!
