Although not perfect, this movie is indeed a noir. The ambiance is here, as well as good acting and direction (most of them now have achieved notoriety). Of course Déja Mort is kind of immature in essence, but what do you expect teenagers, rich & wannabees, having parties, sex drugs and alcohol to act like ? Noir is about flawed characters making mistakes. It's a noir by a young writer/director aimed at a young audience, and as that, it is quite good.
And PLEASE don't compare it to Requiem for a Dream, dummy. I know Dahan is not Aronofsky, but unless you think the 1933 King Kong is a remake of Peter Jackson's, check out the release dates.
