One of the best movies I have seen
18 February 2001 | by (Dallas, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is based on a play by Durrenmatt: the story is entertaining, yet it makes you think about what is true and fake, chance and destiny, who you really are and what your life goals are. The movie is a comedy, the movie is a drama, it makes you laugh and think, with several ironic twists. The list of actors is impressive (very well known French actors + the great Sordi) and the acting is really up to expectations. The direction is remarkable too: one of the best movies I have seen!

Unfortunately, I have seen the movie only once on TV in France. Does anybody know how I can get a copy? Thank you.
