********Don´t want to read a spoiler, skip this*******
After the first 20 minutes, what seemed to be a film about a group of friends and their jokes on each other twists to that twists to a nice cat and mouse chase. This is a crime-thriller with a nice blend of suspended breath moments with light little jokes and some romance here and there. This is not of the 100 best movies i´ve seen, but it´s worth the time watching. Good acting by Mr.Cluzet, and Claude Zidi has a mastery of telling things by bits, keeping you curious.
