Superb

Best thriller I've seen for many years.

Not a Must See

Slow and confusing and a bit violent except when it came to the dog! A French whodunit with a few holes. Missable.

Though almost laughably intricate in its plotting, this thoroughly Gallic adaptation of Harlan Coben's novel reps an entertaining sophomore outing for thesp-turned-director Guillaume Canet.

Even when it's baffling, it's never boring. I've heard of airtight plots. This one is not merely airtight, but hermetically sealed.

Author Coben, who says he is a fan of "stories that move you, that grab hold of your heart and do not let it go," has gotten a film that does exactly that.

Spicing up the entire package is a screenplay by Canet and Philippe Lefebvre that bristles with wit and energy.
