deville's thriller is very fascinating to the last moment. the whole movie is held in a mystic blue as is the picture's atmosphere. conclusions and story line equal each other in sharpness and very sexy mathilda may adds an superb erotic touch to it. no explosions or dumb Hollywood shootings disturb the intelligent logic plot at any point. every moment of the movie feels right, the director never looses his line or control. the male leads bruel and dutronc deliver great performances as well. in my eyes this is clearly one of the 10 best french films of the 90ies. it should be your first choice, if you like straight intelligent stories created by brains like mrs. highsmith.
