L'adversaire

Nicole Garcia Switzerland, 2002

J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Adversary

Based on a true story & on a book. It is upsetting, unpleasant, embarassing, fatal. You immediataley happen to know what's going on and how it will end, but can't stop watching eagerly. Daniel Auteuil is a cold fish; the opposite of being kind & charming. Not everybody's piece of cake...
