Few months ago had a coffee with the director of a new movie about a Dutch rogue trader. As a graduation project of the filmacademie, the guys worked with limited budget. Everything is more or less finished, just some last editing left.
The main thing still missing is a catchy title. There are some suggestions, but they aren’t very convincing. The story is about a rogue trader who has a day or two before the police will arrest him – and spends his time meeting old friends. Say, the The 25th Hour but this time instead of the drug dealer the trader who’s facing jail. Not much dealingroom footage, but a financial term could be nice. Say ; margin call.
Director Tom van Blommenstein coined “Dead cat bounce“. A Dutch title is possible too – there won’t be any subtitles from the start. Anybody a better suggestion?
