Translation Coming to a Theater Near You

While the piece in the L.A. Times highlighting Point Blank appeared a few weeks ago, the film is still in release, and I plan to see it soon, certainly before a remake happens.  It’s similar to other recent successful French thrillers, so the question arises:  is it still a “thriller,” and French, if the frantically pressured men aren’t rescuing strong but vulnerable women?  And would it be so phenomenally successful there and abroad if it weren’t?
