One of the best films I have watched. It has everything - great acting, good story, action & tension and unlike most of the recent Hollywood thrash it has a beginning, a middle and an end! I cannot understand some reviewers picking up on minute little details when overall it was an excellent film. Compared to nearly all of the Hollywood releases I have watched recently, the foreign films (and probably the French ones in particular) are far superior. I believe Hollywood are planning a remake of t
Good, but could have been better

I enjoyed this and it certainly keeps you on the edge of your seat. However I had a few problems with the story telling. Like, who would go off and leave a van (with drugs and medical records) with all the doors unlocked and park it outside a prison??? No I didn’t think so. Its a good story but with a little more thought the loop holes, that are the size of a chasm could have been tightened up and it could have been a great film not just a good one
A class act

I am amazed at some of the negative comments. Thought this was a thrilling film,the suspense was unreal, the acting was incredible. Never want to see a Hollywood remake of this-it would have the father & son making up at the end. Gritty french film. One of the best foreign films I have seen in ages. Many twists in the plot, nail-biting stuff. Be prepared to devote it 2 hours without being disturbed.
Tension ? yes in spades !

This is the perfect movie for a couple to watch together.
It will have you on the edge of your seat , literaly, especialy if you have young children.The story is good and is kept tight by the tension in the central relationship.
There are plenty of surprises along the way too.
Now its not the best French film ever made but it has done well at the French box office.
Great French thriller
