The Hollywood Remake Will Be Better
25 August 2002 | by (Herzlya, Israel) – See all my reviews

A short investigation in the IMDb shows that this was the last film of director and writer Christopher Frank, who died before the filmed was released. I do not remember having seen anything by him before, but judging after this film the cinematic loss is especially of a remarkable script writer.

The story is of a business man (married plus one), who starts flirting and having a non satisfying affaire with a beautiful woman he meets out of his office. It turns quickly in a blackmail and murder story, reminding Hitchcok's movies. The problem is that the directing is also from Hitchcok's period minus the genius of the suspense master. Good acting and especially the well written story line keeps the viewer awake, but the movie is still much less then it could be.

With the trend of French film scripts being bought by US studios and re-made in big Hollywood flicks, I would not be amazed that the same happens with this well-written story. In this case the US version has good chances to be a better film than the French original... I can already see Richard Gere, Nicole Kidman, and Denise Richards as the stars of the remake ;-) Anybody in Hollywood reading IMDb?
