It is a good thing this adaptation of the Harlan Coben novel was not done in Hollywood---I can just imagine the "creepy thriller".
Guillaume Canet has made an intelligent thriller and love story,so exciting you don't notice the running time.
Francois Cluzet carries the film,helped by a great cast.
I have to remember to do a big favor for a criminal just in case I get framed for a murder. It really helps out. I remember KST talking about how she's too typecast in England, but she can play different types of people when she works in France. As far as the ending where they explain things, it was fine. Just one way to explain the intrigue.
That's what thrillers are supposed to do: THRILL! yes, sometimes the plot is convenient, predictable or even ridiculous, but it's such a joy ride of riveting, edge of your seat moments that it all works out wonders at the end. That's entertainment.
Stylish, smart, and mature - a refreshing thriller. Unfortunately, it was a little too vague and meandering in the middle, making for an accumulation of many needless minutes. But in the end it was satisfying, and that's what matters.
Can't really list my complaints with the film without dropping too many spoilers. Interesting concept and well directed, but I thought the script kept things too unduly vague for too long, losing my interest.
