Watching the movie "Croupier" will bring you closer to a clearer understanding of casino’s operation, but it is not the main thing in the film. It attracts by its story, where the writer, who dived into the atmosphere of gambling in order to write his novel is in the center of story.

Jack Manfred played the role of Clive Owen, who became a croupier in order to explore the world of casino inside, but he induced into a new job to his surprise. Jack himself wasn’t a gambling person. At first, he only watched the game and people who were ready to put everything on the line. However, over time, the situation changed. A frequent casino visitor and a charming girl lured the writer-croupier in a scam. The hazard and associated temptation gradually got control over the hero even stronger than he could assume.

This is a movie about the other side of the casino. I think the film is worth watching.

I decided to watch it because the film is related to poker and it has a good rating on imdb. in general, I liked it, especially I want to note the great acting of Clive Owen. I love him as an actor starting from the movie Closer.
