For a French film this is more mainstream than the offbeat, edgy title suggests. If you are expecting a clever, Charbrolesque thriller - be very disappointed.Conversely, this is a would-be Hitchcock thriller that feels more like Brian De Palma's worse efforts. The protagonist, seduced and tormented by the femme fatale, is very unlikeable and it is therefore difficult to summon any interest in his plight, given his flaws and bad taste in women! At times, the film has a late-night cable ambiance which seems odd considering its pretensions as a Hitchcockian thriller. Sadly, this film was a missed opportunity - a futile attempt to make mainstream French thrillers to French audiences who already are familiar with this genre.
