Our take

Homages to Hitchcock and… an eau de Tintin too? Worldly, stylish, and full of oddball fun, Nicolas Pariser’s film ricochets between elaborate conspiracies and little absurdities. As one of two neurotic protagonists, Vincent Lacoste moves with perfect comic bamboozlement through this crime caper.
