Croupier

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

An ingenious and unpredictable story of the wheel of chance, of good luck against bad, of fate against coincidence, of plot against destiny. It is told from the inside, through the life and feelings of an anonymous croupier.





In our age of uncertainty, it is about the deep need for security set against the temptations of risk. The story is an original take on the universal obsession with gambling. Constructed like a night spent in a casino, winning one minute, losing the next, Croupier is paced like a thriller. Each twist of the story exposes the eternally divided personalities of men. And women.
