French Drama thriller with a great central performance
26 April 2015 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

Muriel is a divorced beautician who won't let the truth get in the way of a good story. She is also a super fan of French singer Vincent Lacroix whom she idolises. Then out of the blue he turns up on her doorstep and asks her for help - unconditionally - and does not even tell her what he is really asking her to do.

What follows will have repercussions for them both and even further afield. Now to say any more runs the risk of spoiling the brilliant plot reveals and there are a fair few here to enjoy. Sandrine Kimberlain as Muriel is totally convincing but she is supported by a cast that all know their craft.

This is an assured production and even the incidental music is excellent. There is a bit of humour here too as well as a few bucket loads of suspense. The sub titles could have been better translated but that is not a die in the ditch issue. This is one for those who love their European cinema with a Gallic twist - recommended.
