Trivia

When Jean-Louis Trintignant's character is being grilled, the policeman mentions that witnesses saw a man and a woman. Trintignant responds by whistling a bit of the theme from his previous movie with Claude Lelouche, the international sensation Un homme et une femme (1966). See more »

Middling and Overlong
30 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

A man escapes from prison and seeks the loot he had stashed away five years earlier. The middling narrative moves in fits and starts, with scenes unfolding at a leisurely pace. In particular, there's an elaborate kidnapping scene that plays out in such minute detail that it loses all momentum. The presentation is rather confusing. In fact, the flashback to the events of five years earlier is so clumsily handled that it takes a while for it to become clear that earlier events are being recounted. It opens with an extended prologue, a movie within the movie, that overstays its welcome. The same could be said of the film, which runs out of steam long before the end.
