The film’s striking opening credits was his homage to the black and white film noirs of the ‘40s. In the book that the film was based on, the three kids were much older but Siri wanted them young, like the kids from Columbine—dead inside and with little regard for human life. Siri comes off all as well-spoken, talking at length about the motivations of characters and the themes of the movie.

This one is mostly average, but the lively and enthusiastic way French director Siri talks despite his lack of fluency in English (funny how he pronounces the word "little" as "lethal") makes the track relatively interesting.

Just okay. A little hard to understand what he is saying, and a little sparse in places make this a mostly boring commentary. There are various things of interest that he brings up, but many can be read in the IMDB trivia section. One thing the commentary does show is how talented the director is, and how complex were the many things he tried to convey (even if not all of them worked out).
